Boiler fitting and particularly Boiler replacement is a specialised task which requires that you select your fitter carefully so that high quality and low cost are maintained. Before you consider getting a quote for installing a new boiler think about the following:
Why do you need one? Has your boiler stopped working completely or does it simply need a service. Boilers can stop working for many reasons. One common reason is that there is no water in the system so the boiler refuses to fire up. Another popular cause of a boiler stopping to work is where there is no gas going into the the boiler. This can occur were a gas tap internally or externally has been switched off.
What type of boiler do you need? There are conventional, combination and oil boilers. Each has its own advantage over the other and should be considered carefully before purchase. This can impact on the cost of fitting a Boiler.
When do you need one? Decisions to purchase a boiler is not often taken easily. Sometimes people rush into buying a boiler immediately when a little patience could bring greater rewards such as saving and better quality purchase. A rushed decision rarely brings the greatest dividend.
What price? There is a wide range of boiler prices offered when it comes to installing the same boiler. This is understandable as the cost of providing the service differs with every boiler installation company. What is however important is there experience and level of service they provide. Do some due diligence by researching about the company to find out whether there has been any complaints about the quality of their boiler fitting and analyse any complaints found. Not all complaints are legitimate and also all companies good or bad will have complaints made about them. The difference is the good ones always do their best to please customers.
Who? There are a number of criteria that will influence your decision t select a particular company to install your boiler. Recommendations are probably one of the deciding influences on selecting a boiler installation company. Another major consideration is proximity of the boiler fitters to your home. It is usually an advantage to select a company close to you so that in the event that there is a problem they can be with you relatively short period of time to deal with it.
Other important considerations are the experience and qualification of the boiler fitter. It is a compulsory requirement that anyone handling fitting gas products are suitably qualified. Some gas boiler fitters are also qualified to perform the electrical task required to complete the job. This will ensure that your job gets done without any delays which will be the case if the boiler fitter needs to wait for an electrician to complete the electrical part of the installation.
When asking for a boiler fitting quote the price can seem a little steep. Boiler replacement cost are normally even higher than straight forward installation. Two things that can be done to reduce these are to research online and compare the prices of installers and ask for a discount if you recommend there services to a friend.
