New Boiler Options
A reliable installer will assess your property as well as your current boiler and heating system this allows them to establish which new boilers will be suitable for your heating and DHW (Domestic Hot Water) demands. For example, in a small flat, a combination boiler is likely to be the best option. To provide heating and hot water for a flat usually requires a compact space-saving heating system, without a large cylinder of hot water. Hot water on demand saves money with low usage. Compact, combi boilers fit in most smaller spaces.
Your installer will also take into consideration your preferences; however, it is important to listen to your installers advice as they know which type of boiler will suit your property and needs best.

Manufacturers offer parts and labour warranties with new boilers. They also provide contact numbers to call. The terms of your warranty will include annual boiler servicing, which you will need to pay for to meet the warranty conditions and avoid it becoming void.
It is always a good decision to choose and experienced installer when it come to replacing your boiler. This will help guarantee the boiler you choose will be correctly installed.
