Some Tips when considering a Boiler Upgrade

And while you’re in the process of getting three quotes, ask the potential suppliers what type of boiler is best for your requirement and the related hardware cost. The factors you should be talking to with your potential suppliers are: boiler capacity, preferred brand and the fuel you are considering.
So, to the Installation of the Boiler Upgrade…
You must decide if you are sticking with the same location of your old boiler for the boiler upgrade. A new boiler location will most likely increase the cost of the installation and the boiler upgrade duration. Most boiler locations are in a utility room, an attic and some in a kitchen. Oil based boilers are typically located outdoors and close to an oil storage tank.
Other Boiler Upgrade considerations
The type of boiler you select will also impact on the installation duration – which will increase the labour costs.
Also, if you are upgrading from an older conventional boiler to a combi boiler, this may involve removing water tanks, conversely upgrading to a higher capacity boiler may involve mare radiators.
Combi Boiler Installations will also involve connecting your boiler to your electrical control board so your boiler upgrade supplier will also commission a qualified electrician
And of course, if you are installing a Gas Boiler they must be RGI Registered and OFTEC qualified if installing an Oil Boiler.
