Purchasing a boiler in London will be one of the most important purchases of your life. It will also be one of the more unpleasant purchases you can make. Buying a new boiler for your home does not come cheap, which is why you need to know the following to make the purchase as pleasant as possible, for your home and your finances.
Getting the Right Boiler
There are many options when it comes to boiler brands and installers in the UK, and the prices vary depending on the size of boiler, the type and brand. Normally, the prices of new boilers range from £800 to £2000. Since a boiler installation is a long-term investment it is critical for homeowners to find the right boiler type and the right size for your home. The prices of the boiler can also vary depending on the installer as well. Trusted brands include Vaillant, Worcester Bosch and Ideal, and these boilers and their installation can range between £1,800 to £3,000. To make sure you’re getting a good deal its always best to take two or three quotes from different boiler installers before committing to a particular brand and an installer.
Savings with New Boilers
Using older boilers can end up costing you more in monthly energy bills. According to the Energy Saving Trust, a modern, condensing boiler can help you save up to £350 a year. This is just one of the reasons why it is necessary to invest in a new, quality boiler that will save you more money in the long run.
Which Guarantees Matter?
When it comes to boilers, it is important to remember that it’s not just the guarantee that comes along with the boiler, but the installer as well. For instance, Vaillant, Ideal and Worcester Bosch vet the installers they use with various grades, which ultimately impacts the length of the guarantee for their boilers.
Getting the Boiler Registered
Once the boiler has been selected and installed homeowners have one month, or 30 days to get it registered. This is a requirement if you want to take advantage of the warranty, without which the warranty in the contract will be void. To have peace of mind, it is best that you get your boiler registered within the given time period.
Keeping your boiler well maintained throughout the year will ensure that your boiler stays safe and provides your home with the necessary heat, especially during the winter months. Normally, the installer of your boiler will include periodic maintenance in the boiler installation package, but you should ask for their company’s procedure if it is unclear. And it is best to do that before they begin installing the new boiler in your home. The standard maintenance services that are provided by boiler installers within the UK include the following:
- Replacing parts that are no longer functional.
- Proper inspection of boiler pipes and components.
