We are here to help you navigate through the process of installing a boiler, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free experience. Let’s get started on your journey to a more efficient and reliable heating system.
Finding your perfect boiler
Decide what type of boiler you need. There are three main types of boilers: combi boilers, system boilers, and conventional boilers. A Combi boiler provides both hot water and central heating, while a system boiler only provides central heating. Conventional boilers provide both hot water and central heating, but they require a hot water cylinder.
Consider your needs. How many people live in your home? How much hot water do you use? How much central heating do you use? These factors will help you determine the size and power of the boiler you need. What is your current central heating system?
Get a detailed quote. Once you know what type of boiler you need, get a quote from your installer. This will help you compare prices and find the best deal. ( knowing the boiler installation cost in detail)

Finding an installer
Get recommendations from friends, family, or neighbours. If you know someone who has recently had a boiler installed, ask them who they used.
Search online. Many websites list boiler installers in your area. You can search by location, type of boiler, and price.
Check with trade associations. Trade associations, such as the Gas Safe Register, can provide you with a list of qualified and experienced installers in your area.
How to arrange a new boiler installation?
Contact the installer you have chosen. Give them the details of your boiler and your home, and they will be able to give you an estimate for the installation.
Book the installation. Once you have agreed on a price, book the installation. This will usually be done for a specific date and time.
On the day of the installation, be there to meet the installer. The installer will need to access your boiler and your home, so it is important to be there to let them in.
The installer will remove your old boiler and install the new one. This usually takes a day or if it is a conversion or relocation could be more. ( same location or different location, same type of conversation )
It is also important to agree and let the gas engineer know if you wish to keep your existing radiators, or if you require new ones.
Once the boiler is installed, the installer will test it to make sure it is working properly. They will also give you instructions on how to use and maintain the boiler.
What’s the best boiler size for you? The boiler and heating system match!
The best boiler size for you will depend on the size of your home, your warm water needs, and your central heating needs. A boiler that is too small will not be able to provide enough heated water or heat for your home, while a boiler that is too large will be inefficient and waste energy.
When you are getting a new boiler, it is important to make sure that it matches your heating system. If you have a traditional radiator system, you will need a different type of boiler than if you have an underfloor heating system.
