3 Tips for buying a new boiler

Getting a new boiler can be a stressful situation, especially since you probably haven't paid them much attention for the last ten years- and a lot has changed! We have made a list of tips to help you choose the best boiler for your home and to make your life a little bit easier. Keep reading to find out more.

1. Big brands are worth the money

When looking for a new boiler, you will find so many boiler manufacturers. Some you will have heard of, such as Baxi, Ideal and Worcester-Bosch, while others you may be less familiar with. It is really important to shop around for your boiler and check customer reviews for a range of different manufacturers. You will probably find that the big name brands are slightly more expensive, but they are worth every penny over the years. 

2. Stick to your decision

Once you have done all your research and found the right boiler brand for your home, you need to stick with this decision. Some gas engineers are offered incentives by certain manufacturers when they install their boilers, so will try and sway you in another direction. If this is the case, you need to be firm and stick with what you know is best for your home.

3. Get the right model

Every manufacturer offers a range of boilers, with some best for bigger homes and others best for smaller ones. if your home uses a lot of energy, you will benefit from a system or conventional boiler that operate with a separate water tank to keep up with high demands. If you have a smaller home, you may prefer an efficient combi boiler, that only heats water as and when you need it.

One thing you don't need to worry about is efficiency. Every new boiler will be more efficient than your old model, as they are all required to use condensing technology by law. This means your new boiler will be A Rated for efficiency, wasting as little as 10%.
