Considerations when choosing a new boiler

When the time comes to choose a new boiler, you can be faced with a range of decisions. This can make choosing a new boiler an overwhelming experience. However, it doesn’t have to be. So what should you consider when choosing a new boiler? And how can you make the right choice for your home?

What are the important considerations when choosing a new boiler?

There are a number of different factors to take into account when it comes to choosing a new boiler. These include:

  • The budget
  • The boiler type
  • The boiler size
  • The boiler position

Budget properly

Purchasing a new boiler can be an expensive commitment. As a result, we recommend setting a reasonable budget. There are thousands of pounds difference between different boilers, so knowing your budget can help you narrow down your search.

In addition, it is important to remember that a boiler installation will often also cost you money. Consequently, we recommend including the installation cost in your budget, and making sure you have some extra room in case anything goes wrong.

Choose the better deal

Check out different websites and suppliers to find the best deals. You don’t want to pay more than you have to, and you can often find the same boiler for a range of different prices. Choose the best deal for you and make sure you don’t pay out too much.

Boiler Types

From conventional boilers requiring a hot water tank, to combination boilers that are compact and discrete, there are a range of options available in terms of boiler types. Make sure you thoroughly research the different types of boilers before you begin shopping. That way, you will be able to narrow your search.

Furthermore, there are additional costs in installation that may be applicable for some boiler types. For example, the extra pipework on conventional boilers may cost you more to install.

Boiler Sizes

The boiler size range can be confusing. Research your boiler sizes before shopping to help you focus your search on what you actually want. If you need any help or advice, here at Charter Heating, we are always happy to help.

Boiler Position

Finally, you will need to consider the boiler position. Is your existing boiler in a practical and sensible location? If so, then there will be no issue with simply installing your new boiler in the existing framework. However, if your boiler does need to be re-positioned, you will find that the installation costs are higher. As a result, you need to make sure you leave room in your budget.
