Proper Budgeting

Purchasing a new boiler can be an expensive commitment. As a result, we recommend setting a reasonable budget. There are several kilograms difference between different boilers, so knowing your budget can help you narrow down your search.

Additionally, it is important to remember that a boiler installation will often also cost you money. Consequently, we recommend including the installation cost in your budget and ensuring that you have some extra room in case anything goes wrong.

The Right Deal

Make sure you thoroughly research the different types of boilers before you begin shopping. That way, you will be able to narrow your search.

Furthermore, there are additional costs in the installation that may be applicable for some boiler types. For example, the additional pipework on conventional boilers may cost you more to install.
