What should you consider when choosing the right boiler for your home?

October 29, 2021

Buying a new boiler should only be done as a minimum every ten years, so it’s essential you do your research, and our guide will help you make the right decision.

One of the first things to consider is your heating and, mainly, your hot water requirements. If your cold water kitchen tap has a poor flow or you need to run two hot water outlets simultaneously, then a combination boiler may not be the best choice. Our survey will guide you on this.

Here are six tips that we think you need to consider when doing your research:

Choosing the right company

Firstly, check that the person or company you are letting into your home are qualified. Check that they are on the Gas Safe Register and have all the gas qualifications. In addition, check out their website and reviews.


This is one of the the most important parts of the process as a flawed survey or quote could cost you £100s in wasted money due to an incorrectly sized boiler. If a combination boiler is your choice, the COLD WATER SUPPLY must be checked so your boiler can be sized accordingly. We do this on all installations.

Get 3 quotes

We encourage you to get three quotes so you can get a clear and informed decision but remember if an offer or price looks too good to be true, it often is, and we never want to be the cheapest, but we want to give you a fair price but with an installation and service that will leave you WOWED!

Public Liability Insurance

This is often overlooked. If things do go wrong, you want to know your property and home are covered. Our liability insurance is £2 million.

Research the boiler manufacturer

It’s essential to familiarise yourself with 2 or 3 brands to see which one potentially suits your needs. Online reviews are always great but pay particular attention to their reliability and after-care service.

Extended guarantee and warrantee

Extended guarantee or warranty will give you free manufacturers cover for parts and labour. However, this is subject to the installation being carried out to the manufacturer’s installation instructions. We pride ourselves on giving our customers an installation that will meet the manufacturer’s requirements, leaving you a happy customer.
