We recently wrote a popular post on tips for buying a new boiler, and have now followed this with further guidance worth considering before you start the ball rolling. Read on to find our latest top tips on things to bear in mind to help ensure you purchase the boiler that’s right for you and your family.
The number of bathrooms in your home
If your home has a single bathroom, your boiler needs will be very different from a home with multiple bathrooms. This is because certain boiler types, like combis, work really effectively for smaller homes with one bathroom, but not so well for those with an additional bathroom or ensuite. This is because they only run to a single water source, so you can’t have a shower while someone else has a bath or does the washing up. In these homes, a conventional or system boiler is usually the best option.
You can discuss all of this with your heating engineer, but it’s worth knowing the basics now as it will help to narrow down your choice.
If you want to incorporate Smart technology
Smart technology is no longer just limited to mobile phones. Thanks to advances in intuitive tech, you can access different Smart solutions for your home: from a voice assistant controlling your music to being able to operate your lights via your mobile phone.
Smart thermostats, which can easily be installed as part of a new boiler installation, allow you to control your heating from wherever you are in the world. This is not only convenient, it can also help you to be more energy-efficient too.
If you have enough quotes
Because different engineers have varying fees, it’s worth getting 3 separate quotes for boiler installation. While it may be tempting to go with the cheapest one, ensure the engineer is Gas Safe registered and you can read verified reviews on their website. Cost is important, but so is safety, and you don’t want to end up paying out more further down the line because of sloppy work!
