3 Tips for Purchasing a New Boiler

When choosing a new boiler, there are so many things to consider that it can get tricky to find the right one for your home. However, there are three main steps to follow to make sure you have considered everything you to make the best choice. Keep reading to find out how to pick the right boiler for your home.


1. Choose your boiler manufacturer 

Picking the right boiler manufacturer is the first step to getting your new boiler. There are so many different manufacturers on the market that it can be hard to find which is right for you. There are bigger brands, such as Ideal and Baxi, which have built a reputation by offering excellent service and high quality products. When it comes to picking a manufacturer, each offers different pros and cons, and it is up to you to decide what is the most important thing to you. For example, do you prefer high quality over a low price?

2. Choose your boiler type 

There are three main boiler types- combi, conventional and system. Combi boilers are great for smaller homes, as they only require a boiler unit and run directly from mains pressure. This makes them highly efficient but means they struggle to meet a high demand for hot water. If you have a larger home, system or conventional boilers will be a better option. Conventional boilers require the most components, with system being a good middle ground between the two. The type of home you have will decide which type of boiler you need.

3. Choose your boiler size

If you get a boiler that is too big then it will cost you an unnecessary amount to heat your home. If your boiler is too small then it will struggle to meet your needs. The size of your boiler depends on your boiler type and your need for hot water. To work this out, check online for guides recommending boiler sizes based on the size of your home.
