Choosing The Right Boiler

When the time comes to get a new Boiler Installed. Whether this be a newly built home or a Replecement Boiler for an old system which has stopped working or is now so inefficient that it is costing even more money to run and maintain. 

There are certain querstions which you have to ask in order to get the right boiler for your property. But remember, if you are ever in doubt give Glasgow Plumbing Services a call and our highly trained heating engineers will pay you a visit or talk you through any queries which you may have over the phone.

Buying a new boiler is a big decision and one that you want to get right the first time. Not only ensuring that you are getting your boiler installed by a reputable Gas Safe Registered engineer and that the company is fully insured and all the work is guaranteed. You also want to make sure that you buy the right boiler for your property, for your peace of mind and for your pocket…..!!!


Different Boiler Fuel Types

One of the main questions which you will have to decide on is what form of fuel do you want your boiler to be? Gas Boiler, Electric Boiler, Oil Boiler or Solar Boiler. Often the answer will be answered by the type of property you have and what is available. For example, if there is no gas in the property and you have no options to get gas installed then your options are then probably going to be an Electric Boiler. 

A Gas Boiler and an Electric boiler are the two most common options of boilers which we install. However, a Solar Powered Boiler is very slowly becoming more popular as people are trying to reduce their carbon footprint and save on fuel costs. If you would like to go down the route of Solar Water Heating, there are Goverment Grants available to you to help you pay for the installation of the Solar Water System. 


What Space Is Available For Your Boiler?

If you have a small 1 bedroom flat where space is optimal then you really don’t want to be fitting a traditional boier which would take up far too much space. A compact Combi boiler would be more than adequate to supply your property with adequate heating and water flow rate for what you need. 


What Is Your Budget For Your Boiler?

Never underestimate the power of your Budget for your New Boiler. This has a massive influence on the final decision making process when deciding which boiler you want to buy. And always remember that buying the most expensive boiler that you can find isn’t going to be the best option for you anyway. It is more important to find the right boiler for your property in terms of size, power and cost than it is to splash out on something which you don’t need. Buying an oversized boiler means that you have paid out for something 

If you are unclear about what options are available to you, speak to one of our fully trained Heating Engineers who will guide you through the various steps and help you choose that boiler that is right for you.
