Tips for buying the ideal boiler

If your heating bills have skyrocketed and your home simply isn’t being heated efficiently, you’ll probably be looking at investing in an ideal boiler. This will mean replacing that inefficient system with an A-rated boiler.

With a new boiler the Energy Saving Trust estimate savings of up to £300 a year on your heating bills, and you will slash the risk of a boiler breakdown in the heart of winter.

The decision on which boiler or type to opt for shouldn’t be made lightly. After all, an ideal boiler isn’t the cheapest piece of equipment in your home and will be with you for between 10 and 15 years.

Here you’ll find some of our useful tips to help you find the ideal boiler.

  • Your boiler budget

Most UK households will be a little tight for money this winter, so the budget will primarily dictate which ideal boiler you have installed. At the end of the day, there are a number of factors that will contribute to the final outlay – The brand, the type and the size of the boiler are just three. Often it’s worthwhile looking at financial deals, but don’t pay out more than you can afford.

  • Research your ideal boiler

Researching a boiler is crucial to deciding which is the best suited system for your home. In the tough financial climate it’s definitely worth conducting plenty of research before signing the dotted line. For instance, combi boilers have become the most popular boiler installations in British homes because of their ability to heat water straight from the mains. However, this type of boiler might not necessarily be ideal for your home.

  • Receive more than one quote

It would be foolish to take up the first quote that comes your way. By doing this, how can you know if the price is fair and reflective of the boiler and the work that needs completing?  Typically it’s advised to receive up to four quotes from professional tradesmen. This way you know you’re not being fiddled. It’s also recommended to avoid large national companies, and local professionals are likely to offer a cheaper rate.

  • The type of boiler

There are a number of boiler types for you to consider, both on an efficiency side of things, as well as convenience for your home. Condensing boilers are hugely popular because of their energy efficiency and ability to convert more fuel into heat. There are also other options for you to consider, such as the environmentally friendly biomass boilers.
