Gas Boiler Replacement in Devon
Make your home more efficient – replace your boiler
The boiler is the unsung hero in every home – running unnoticed in the background, but working diligently behind the scenes to provide everyone in the family with comfort and support, 365 days a year.
A boiler malfunction or complete fail can be very stressful as no boiler means only cold water and no central heating. Also an efficient heating system can make a real difference to the amount a household spends on energy bills. It comes as no surprise that replacing your boiler can really help you to save money, and you may not want to wait until you have a boiler breakdown before considering a boiler replacement.
Do you know that running an old, inefficient boiler means that up to 30% of the hot water and heating fuel requirements could be wasted? Heating a home also uses about 60% of what the average household spends per year on their energy bill – and when we get a long and cold winter, like the one we had in 2017/18, that percentage gets bigger.
As you can see fitting a new more efficient boiler to power your central heating system makes a great deal of sense – it helps save you money, gives you peace of mind, and ensures that your home remains the place of comfort and solace that it should be.
What you should consider when getting your heating system replaced
When thinking about having your boiler changed for a new one you need to firstly decide what type is right for you and your home. Options you need to consider include:
- What fuel type do you want to use or have available at your property?
- Do you know what type of boiler you would like to use?
- How much hot water do you normally use in your house?
- How much space do you have in your home for your new boiler?
If you don’t have mains gas piped into your home then you will need to consider other options when it comes to deciding what type of boiler to use such as one powered by electricity (mains or off-grid), oil, LPG, or an alternative energy source like biomass.
If you use alot of hot water then you may be better off with a regular boiler (with a hot water cylinder) as opposed to a combi boiler, which is often a great choice if you have limited space in your home.
The stages of fitting a new boiler
Whenever we are contacted to help a customer fit or replace their boiler with a new one we follow a series of stages. Here is a very brief outline (read our blog post for more detail about the 7 stages of fitting a new boiler) – so that if you want to have your boiler changed for a new one, you know what to expect.
1. The Initial Consultation
When you contact us by telephone or call into the showroom we will have a discussion about boiler types and brands, prices, and suitability.
2. The Home Survey
After we have spoken to you we will then take the time to conduct a free full home survey.
3. Different Types of Boiler
Choosing a boiler starts with the different types. We will guide you through the advantages of each including the Combination Boiler, the System Boiler, and the Regular Boiler.
4. The Types of Boiler Controls
As much as there is a choice of boiler type, there is also a choice of the type of control that you can use to control it!
5. The Quotation
The information gathered from the home survey will be used to provide a quotation for the boiler replacement.
6. Replacing the Boiler
An average boiler replacement can be completed in one day, or if we are replacing more than an average boiler, it will take longer.
7. Boiler Guarantee
Buying and having your new replacement boiler fitted by professionals ensures that you get a guarantee. And keeping your new boiler serviced is part of ensuring the guarantee is valid.
