Tips for Purchasing a New Boiler

When the time comes to buy a new boiler for your home, there’s a myriad of thoughts that are likely to cross your mind.

From choosing the right boiler installation service to identify which type of heating system is right for your home, the challenge of achieving value for money can trouble even older and more seasoned home-owners.

In this post, we’ll look at the key considerations when purchasing a new model, whilst asking why Home Heating offers the ideal boiler installation service to meet your needs!

Identify the Type of Boiler that you Need

From sealed system boilers and non-condensing units to modern combi models, it’s fair to say that not all heating systems have been created equal. 

So, you’ll need to choose the right type of boiler to suit your requirements, by considering multiple factors such as the size of your home, the likely demand for hot water and the individual efficiency rating of the unit that you install.

Your choice of boiler will also impact on where the unit is placed and the amount of space required for installation, with conventional heating systems featuring both hot and cold water tanks.

Fortunately, you chosen boiler installation engineer can guide you through this decision making process, by providing actionable advice that enables you to make informed selections.

Your Budget

Once you understand the type of boiler that you need, the next step is to create a budget and identify viable units that exist within your financial means.

The price of a boiler will be impacted directly by factors such as the brand, the type and the size of the unit, with modern, A-rated units from leading manufacturers likely to come at a premium. 

Of course, they also offer optimal efficiency levels and long-term savings, so if you can afford this type of boiler then this should be considered as a worthwhile investment.

It’s also important to remember that the price of a unit doesn’t include the cost of boiler installation, so you’ll need to source quotes from service providers in order to make an informed decision.

Consider Boiler Finance to Spread the Cost

In some cases, your selected boiler installation service may be able to offer finance packages to qualifying customers.

In theory, this has the potential to minimise your upfront cost when buying a boiler, as you instead spread the cost across a fixed number of affordable, monthly repayments.

Some companies also work as approved installers for specific manufacturers, and in this instance you may be able to qualify for an extended warranty on selected models.
