Installing a new boiler can be a rather stressful event. At best, installing one incorrectly may result in inefficiency or a damaging leak as a worst case. For the installation process you should be hiring a professional to ensure that it is done correctly.
Following the steps below will help your boiler installation go smoothly.
Step 1: What Type of Boiler do You Need
There are three basic types of boilers. The combi, the conventional, and the system boiler. The first thing you should do is research the three different types and decide which one is best for your situation. It will depend on factors such as how much space you have, how much hot water you need if you have a gas connection and how efficient you want it to be.
Step 2: Determine the Boiler Size You Need
Next up, you need to figure out what size boiler you need. Look at how much water you need for your family. How many people are in your family will factor into this, as will how often you need hot water. You also want to look at how much space you have and where in your home you would like your boiler to live.
Step 3: Find a Professional
You ought to find a professional to do the actual installation of the boiler. Especially if you are working with gas, you will need a professional who can do the installation efficiently and safely. This will cost much less than trying to do it yourself and will ensure that everything is done properly. A good installation professional will work within your budget and timeline to get the boiler you need in place.
Step 4: After the Installation
Once the installation is complete, you need to be certain that you have the proper paperwork. The installation technician will give you a building regulations certificate, as well as a completed benchmark certificate to prove that you are compliant with the building regulations and gas safe rules.
Then you are all complete with your boiler installation. If you used a reputable company, they should provide you with a guarantee on their services. If anything goes wrong after the installation for the term of the guarantee, you can call them in to repair anything that isn’t working properly. You should also be able to get them to come in to do maintenance work every couple of years to ensure that your boiler continues to work properly for many years.
