Are you having a new boiler installed? It may help to know just what to expect from the installation, as this is something that many people have never dealt with. You may have moved into your home with the boiler already installed and now you need a new one. Here’s how it should happen.
Find the Right Installer
A good, professional installer will be able to answer all your questions and discuss the needs of the home. You may already know what type of boiler you want to be installed, but it’s always a good idea to discuss this with the installer. They will provide more information and the pros and cons of the various systems. You can also ask about additional functionality.
It may be helpful to get a quote from multiple installers so you know what to expect in terms of price. You will need to ensure that they are all quoting the same system. The quote should include power flushing of the system, control installation, changes to the system if needed, as well as the full installation of the boiler.
How Long an Installation Takes
Depending on what needs to be done, the boiler installation may take one day or three. The vast majority will be done within a day. The longer period of time is due to changing the type of boiler you use, which will require adjustments to the system.
What Happens On the Day
The day your new boiler is installed, the installer will arrive with the new boiler. They will first take out the old boiler and then flush the entire system to ensure it’s clean. After that, you can expect them to make any changes that must be made to accommodate the new system.
The new boiler will be set up once the pipes are set up and then they will install any accessories that are part of the system, such as the thermostat. Finally, the technician will ensure the entire system is functioning properly before signing off on it.
Your new boiler will have a warranty on it, so if you experience any issues, you can call to have the installer come back and fix any problems. This is part of the installation process.
