You've made the decision to replace your old boiler with a brand new spanking up to date boiler! But where do you start and how do you go about selecting the right boiler and the right installer?
With anything home related, there has to be a budget of how much you are willing to spend on your boiler. Do some research on how much a new boiler will cost by requesting a free quotation and determining a budget. The budget you write down - do not go over it! It's good to be able to pay for your boiler using monthly payments. Furthermore you might even be eligible for the Warmwise Grant - find out if you are here.
From old back boilers and sealed system boilers to combi and condensing boilers, what type of boiler you opt for will depend on a number of things. Size, output, cost and efficiency all need to be considered. Whatever make and model you choose, today’s modern boilers are far more energy efficient than the old back boiler you would have fitted behind the fireplace. You could also look into more environmentally sound heating systems, such as biomass boilers.The number of people in your household and also the size of your house will determine your selection process. Also make sure you know where you want to place your boiler in your house.
Do you qualify for the Warmwise Grant?
The Warmwise Grant partners guide you through the scheme and answer any questions you may have, but they also offer further central heating discounts and cashback, in most cases matching or exceeding the Government's original £400. The scheme has even been extended to cover Scotland and Wales, and to all boilers (not just G-rated). While the original Government boiler scrappage scheme had tight criteria (for example, the boiler had to be G-rated), the Warmwise Grant offered by US is typically open to all boilers in all households in England, Wales and Scotland.
