Buying a New Boiler: What’s Ideal for You?

Boilers keep you and your family supplied with hot water. However, they get old and end up breaking down. However, when you’re thinking of buying a new boiler for your home, there are several things you’ll need to consider some factors about your choice. Here’s a simple list.

  • The Fuel It Uses. The type of fuel that your boiler consumes should be on top of your list. Most of the time, especially in the London area, your default choice is a gas boiler. This is because of extensive gas infrastructure available. However, if your home isn’t hooked up oil and LPG boilers are also available.
  • Boiler Type.  There are two main choices you may want to consider. You can pick a combi boiler that provides both hot water and heating for your home. There is also choice to pick a heat-only boiler that only provides hot water.
  • Size and Efficiency. The last factors to consider are the size and efficiency of the unit. If you have a large home, you’ll want a boiler that can service it for an affordable price tag in terms of fuel. A lot of money will end up in keeping the boiler running so try to pick one that costs you the least.

Once you’ve picked out your new boiler, it’s best to leave the boiler installation to professionals. This ensures that it’s properly installed and is working at peak efficiency.
