Boiler Installations FAQs

When is it time to replace my old boiler?

The average boiler lifespan is 15 to 20 years. It's wise to think about getting a new boiler if this period is coming to an end or has already passed. In addition, unusual noises, higher energy costs, or frequent breakdowns could indicate that your boiler is nearing the end of its useful life.

What type of boiler should I choose?

The size of your home, your heating requirements, and your financial situation all play a role in the boiler selection process. Combi boilers, system boilers, and conventional boilers are common varieties. Speaking with an expert installer can assist you in choosing the best choice for your unique needs.

How long does the installation process take?

The kind of boiler, the difficulty of the installation, and the state of your current system are some of the variables that affect how long an installation takes. An installation of a boiler can take one to three days on average. A trustworthy installer will provide you with a more precise estimate based on your particular situation.

Do I need to replace my radiators when installing a new boiler?

When installing a new boiler, you typically don't need to replace your radiators. To maximise efficiency, you must make sure that your current radiators are compatible with the new boiler. Your installer will evaluate the state of your radiators and suggest any required repairs.

Are there government incentives for boiler replacements?

Yes, there are frequent grants and incentives offered by the government to promote energy-efficient improvements, such as boiler replacements. These initiatives encourage eco-friendly behaviour and offer financial assistance for installations that meet certain requirements. To learn more about the available incentives, speak with your installer or the local government.

How can I maintain my new boiler for optimal performance?

Your new boiler's longevity and efficiency depend on routine maintenance. Make an appointment for yearly servicing with a certified technician to ensure everything is performing at its best, check for any problems, and clean any components. Additionally, for routine maintenance tasks that you can handle yourself, refer to the manufacturer's guidelines.
