Boiler Installation

Boiler installation is the process of installing a gas or oil boiler. Boiler installation is a popular choice for homeowners who need to upgrade their heating system. Homeowners have many questions before they choose a boiler installer, and we are here to answer them!

Benefits of having a boiler installed

Homeowners who upgrade their outdated heating systems can enjoy more efficient heat energy savings with newer boilers. Having an expert install your new boiler ensures that it meets safety standards and complies with regulations set out in building laws in England & Wales-all without risking any damage to the property. Boilers also provide peace of mind from potential problems like pipe corrosion over time. Homeowners may also notice significant reductions in utility bills.

The types of boilers available

Natural Gas Boiler

This type of residential boiler is fueled by natural gas, which is cleaner to burn and produces fewer greenhouse emissions compared to other fuels. Homeowners can save money on their energy bills because they don’t need as much heating fuel.

Electric Boiler

Homeowners can save on energy costs by using electric boilers because they use much less fuel than other heating options. Homeowners should have a qualified professional install the boiler to avoid any safety hazards and ensure that it’s properly installed to provide efficient, cost-effective space heating for the home.

Condensing Boiler

Homeowners who want an eco-friendly option that saves them money may choose this type of boiler since these models typically produce up to a 25% savings in their gas usage over time. However, homeowners will need someone with experience installing condensing boilers.

Hot Water Boilers

These are also known as unvented domestic hot water storage heaters and offer a more economical way of supplying hot water to taps throughout your home. Homeowners will need someone with experience installing this type of boiler to ensure that the system is installed correctly and safely for it to work well.

Steam Boiler

This type of boiler uses a heat source (usually steam) from water that has been heated in an external system or with electricity, then converts it into pressurized hot water for space heating systems like radiators and flooring units. Homeowners may also want this option if there’s already an existing piping infrastructure at home for these purposes.

Oil Boiler

Homeowners who want a reliable, economical source of heat may choose this option as these models are known for their low-maintenance design. However, homeowners should make sure they have the professional installation done by an expert because it’s crucial that oil boilers are properly vented or any safety hazards could occur.

The process we employ in installing boilers

There are many different types of boilers available-steam, oil, electric or natural gas so homeowners must understand their requirements as each type has its benefits and drawbacks which need considering further. Homeowners shouldn’t be concerned about our experience as we have qualified, professional boiler installers.

The steps we employ in boiler installation include:

Checking your home’s gas supply is at the right pressure

Examining space available to put a boiler and pipes in, ensuring that we can gain full access to all areas of installation

Removal of old boilers or heating systems so they do need to be made safe for us to work on-if any repairs are necessary during the process, it could delay completion time. If you have an electric or oil boiler, it cannot just be disconnected as there will still be some hot water inside that needs turning off first before proceeding with removal.

Evaluate whether additional pipework may be needed, which would increase the overall cost but could help reduce risks associated with venting and flue gases being expelled into living spaces.
