Things to consider when getting a new boiler

what to expect during a boiler installation

Initial Assessment and Consultation

A licenced heating engineer will perform a preliminary inspection of your house before installation to ascertain your heating needs and provide the best boiler recommendation. During this consultation, variables including your property's size, the number of residents, and your hot water use will be taken into account. To make sure the new boiler will function with the current heating system, the engineer will also inspect the radiators and plumbing.

Choosing the Right Boiler

Following the evaluation, the engineer will make boiler recommendations depending on your needs and financial constraints. They will go over the advantages and features of several boiler models, as well as warranties, controls, and energy efficiency ratings. You and your partner will choose the ideal boiler for your house, considering things like fuel type, heating capacity, and installation needs.

Preparation and Site Survey

The engineer will survey the site before the installation date to determine where the new boiler should be placed and whether the current heating system needs to be modified. This could entail replacing the piping, dismantling the outdated boiler, and adding new parts like an expansion vessel or flue. In addition, the engineer will guarantee that the installation conforms with safety standards and building regulations.

Installation Day

The engineer will show up at your house on the day of installation, fully equipped with all the tools and supplies needed. To start, they will disconnect and remove the old boiler, making sure to dispose of it responsibly and safely. After that, they'll set up the installation space and install the new boiler. This can entail moving the boiler into place and fastening it to the wall or the ground.

Pipework and Connections

The specialist will connect the boiler to the current heating system and plumbing once it is installed. To make sure the pipes are compatible with the new boiler, this can entail changing the pipes already in place or installing new ones. In addition, the engineer will connect the boiler to the electricity, gas and water mains, making sure that every connection is safe and complies with safety standards.

Testing and Commissioning

The engineer will extensively test the boiler after installation is finished to make sure it is operating properly. This could entail testing the pressure and flow rate, looking for leaks, and making sure all of the controls and safety measures are working. When the engineer is happy that everything is functioning as it should, he will commission the system and provide you with instructions on how to use and take care of your new boiler.
