Your Guide to Finding a New Boiler
Get the Size Right
Like our heating engineers will point out in a face-to-face meeting, there isn’t one key point above all others when it comes to choosing a boiler. However, getting the size of your appliance right is certainly one of the most important steps. In fact, you should have a clear idea of which size boiler you will need before establishing your budget.
The size of your boiler is important because every household in Woking, Surrey and across the UK uses theirs in a specific way. To get a realistic idea of what size appliance you will need, look at how many bedrooms you have and think what size boiler will heat them all comfortably.
For example, if you have 1 bedroom, you’re likely only going to need a small boiler. However, if you have 3 or more bedrooms, you must turn your attention to larger models.
Establish a Price Range
Once you know what size boiler you require, creating a budget is a much simpler task. As an independent heating engineer, we aren’t affiliated with any particular manufacturers. We strongly recommend comparing options at the cheaper end of the scale with higher end appliances. This will help you find the perfect price range relative to your income.
Woking Plumbing and Heating Ltd strongly advises you to focus on boilers manufactured by leading brands. From boiler replacements to entire central heating system overhauls, you’re investing a sizeable amount of money.
Cutting corners on a cheap model only increases the chances of boiler breakdown many years earlier than expected.
Research the Best Brands
There’s no simple answer when it comes to choosing a boiler manufacturer. Our heating engineers recognise that the final decision lays with you, so we will only ever make suggestions based on your needs. However, at the very least, you should opt for an appliance from a market-leading brand. With proven quality over decades, these boilers will give you long-term performance and peace of mind.
We recommend carrying out your own research ahead of our visit to your Woking home. With more possibilities to discuss, we can narrow down your options for a perfect fit.
As heating prices continue to rise, it’s more important than ever to find a boiler with impressive energy efficiency. If you’re looking to keep your bills as low as possible, our heating engineers advise installing an appliance with an energy efficiency rating of A or above.
