The significance of after-care services
Customers may feel that it makes no difference who installs the boiler if it comes with a sufficient guarantee, but this is not the case. Most boiler manufacturers require that the installer return to inspect a damaged boiler before proceeding.
A boiler breakdown is frequently due to inadequate installation rather than a failing boiler. If a boiler manufacturer is summoned to a boiler failure that is later determined to be the result of an installation problem, the company will charge the homeowner for the callout.
What kind of new boiler are you looking for?
There are three different types of gas condensing boilers:
A combination boiler, often known as a combi boiler, warms water as needed and does not require a storage tank.
A heat-only boiler, also known as a typical boiler, has a hot water tank or cylinder that may be used to store hot water for later use.
A system boiler also requires a hot water storage tank, which is ideal for a busy home. There is no need for tanks in the loft with a pressurized hot water system, which can contribute to higher efficiency.
Our surveyor will be able to walk you through the many types of boilers and propose the best option for you.
