There are many things to consider when you are thinking about boiler installation. It can be a bigger job than you might have thought, yet it could save you more money than you might have imagined.
What should you consider?
- Can I get a grant?
Unfortunately the boiler scrappage scheme is now closed, but certain households maybe entitled to a grant, depending on if you get a disability or income-related benefit. These grants are available to help pay for heating and insulation improvements. You could be entitled to up to £3500.
- Choosing a Gas Safe Registered Plumbing and Heating Engineer
It is always a good idea to talk to more than one plumbing and heating company about a boiler installation. By comparing recommendations and quotes you will get a better idea of not only the cost and the installation process, but the options available to you. As a plumbing and heating installer operating across North, North East and North West London Plumbing Wise welcome the opportunity to talk to you and quote for a boiler installation.
- The layout of your current central heating system
The layout of your current boiler system will have an effect on the overall cost. If you are planning on moving a boiler it can be expensive as the system layout and pipework will need altering.
- Which new or replacement boiler to have installed?
There are many options to consider in terms of the type and manufacturer of the boiler. The suitability of the boiler depends on the nature of your property and your heating requirements. It is always advisable to talk to a Gas Safe registered plumbing and heating engineer for professional advice on which boiler to choose. As there are so many considerations when choosing a boiler, why not speak to one of our expert boiler and heating engineers for some help?
- A power flush of your existing central heating system
Power Flushing is a process that forcibly cleanses central heating systems by using high velocity, low pressure water, with the objective of restoring your heating system to its optimum operation. We recommend Power Flushing and most boiler manufacturers demand it, with failure to comply resulting in the invalidation of many new boiler warrantees. You can contact Plumbing Wise about Power Flushing and installing your boiler here.
When considering any boiler and central heating repairs, servicing or installations; in the interests of your own safety, seek the advice of a qualified, Gas Safe heating engineer.
