How do I get the best boiler deal?

Most of us like to shop around for an attractive deal however, as with any home appliance, it doesn’t always pay to buy the cheapest. When it comes to finding the ‘best new boiler deal’ there is far more to consider than the initial outlay. Product reliability and energy efficiency are key factors when looking at long-term running costs and environmental impact.

In other words, while there are many boiler brands in the UK and some cost much less than others, be cautious about short term savings as inferior boilers may require more frequent repairs and need replacing much sooner than a higher-end model. Even if you are in a potentially urgent situation due to your old boiler breaking down, be wary of making an impulse buy. The last thing you want to do is jeopardize what should be a long, healthy boiler service life which is typically 10-15 years.

When looking at new combi boiler deals, you'll also need to think about installation expenses as this will could add to the overall cost of your project depending on your requirements. If you are changing to a different type of heating system eg. changing from a conventional or system boiler to a combi, you will need to factor in installation costs; especially if you are moving the boiler from one location to another. In some case the boiler flue may need to be relocated to sit on an outside wall or a plume diverter may need to be installed depending on the boiler flue proximity to neighbouring houses. Of course, for situations that involve a straight swap with what you had before, installation costs will be more modest. And remember, combi boilers generally cost less than system and regular boilers so this could offset some of your expenditure.

When should I install a new boiler?

Bear in mind when carrying out your research into gas boiler offers that it is best to build in enough time to allow the installation to be carried out in the summer months. This is because once the cold winter weather arrives, plumbers are in huge demand which can sometimes push prices up a little.
