Frequently Asked Questions: Boiler Installations

What kind of boilers are available?

Boilers are classified into three types: combi, system, and conventional.

  • Combi boilers generate heat for your central heating system and hot water on demand, eliminating the need for a separate water tank.
  • System boilers must have a cylinder to store hot water, but unlike conventional boilers, they do not require a tank in the loft. They are ideal for homes with many bathrooms.
  • Conventional boilers, sometimes called open vents or ordinary boilers, require both a cylinder and a water tank. They are appropriate for properties with several bathrooms and where a lot of hot water is used simultaneously.

How do I select the proper boiler?

Choosing the perfect boiler is determined by various criteria, including the size of your home, the number of bathrooms, water demand, and your budget. It is critical to speak with a skilled heating engineer who can do a customised assessment based on your requirements and recommend the best boiler type.

How long does boiler installation take?

The length of a boiler installation varies depending on the type of boiler and the specifications of your home. It typically takes about a day to replace an old boiler with a new one of the same type. However, if you are converting to a different type of boiler, or if the installation needs considerable modifications to your piping or flue system, it could take several days.

What preparations should I make for the installation?

Ensure that the location where the boiler will be put is free of obstructions. This allows the engineer to access and install the boiler more efficiently. If there are any old systems or components that need to be removed, check with the installer ahead of time to see if they will handle it.

How often does a new boiler require servicing?

It is advised that you service your boiler once a year to keep it running efficiently and safely. Regular servicing is often required as part of the warranty.

Will getting a new boiler save me money?

While the initial cost of a new boiler may be high, modern boilers are more energy-efficient than older types. This efficiency can result in lower energy bills, making the investment potentially cost-effective over time.
