Choosing your New Boiler

When buying a new boiler it is important to consider what type of boiler is most suitable for your home. Our skilled engineers have the experience and expertise to install a variety of boiler types, in order to meet your property’s specific requirements. Read on to learn more about the factors you should consider when choosing your new boiler, or simply book in for a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our friendly Gas Safe registered engineers, who will be happy to offer you advice.

Boiler Size

Buying a new boiler is a significant investment, so choosing an appliance that is right for your home is vital. New boilers come in a range of sizes and it is important to select a boiler that is large enough to heat your entire home, while not wasting energy. The right boiler size for your property is dependent on a number of factors. Firstly, when choosing a new boiler, you should determine how much hot water your household is likely to use. Likewise, the size of your property – including the number of bathrooms, radiators, and floors you have – will impact what size boiler is most appropriate.

Boiler size (or output) is measured in kilowatts (kW), with a higher number of kW indicating a more powerful boiler. While there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution when choosing your new boiler, our experienced boiler installation engineers can advise you on what size boiler you require.

Boiler Fuel Type

Heat only boilers are made up of three main components; the boiler itself, a hot water storage cylinder, and a cold water storage tank supplied by the mains. Once cold water has been heated by the boiler, it is fed directly to your radiators, as well as the hot water cylinder for on-demand use. This type of boiler still works well even if your mains water pressure is low, and is a good option for larger houses and properties with more than one bathroom. However, heat only boilers are relatively complicated, require a lot of space, are not as efficient as combi boilers, and do not supply hot water on demand, meaning hot water can run out and take time to reheat.

Types of new Boiler

In addition to boiler size, you should also consider what type of boiler is best suited to your property, as the wrong type of boiler can lead to unnecessarily high energy bills, or running out of hot water. B. A. Boyle’s skilled engineers are equipped to install all three of the most popular boiler types: combi boilers, heat only boilers (also known as regular or conventional boilers), and system boilers.

Combi Boiler Installation

Combi boilers (or combination boilers) are the most common type of boiler in the UK. They provide both your heating and hot water from a single, typically wall-hung unit. Combi boilers are smaller and more compact than other, more complicated heating systems, making this type of boiler an especially good choice for homes where space is limited. Similarly, as combi boilers supply hot water on demand, rather than via a hot water storage tank, you will only ever pay for the hot water you use. This makes combi boilers both an economical and energy-efficient option.

Heat Only Boiler Installation

Heat only boilers are made up of three main components; the boiler itself, a hot water storage cylinder, and a cold water storage tank supplied by the mains. Once cold water has been heated by the boiler, it is fed directly to your radiators, as well as the hot water cylinder for on-demand use. This type of boiler still works well even if your mains water pressure is low, and is a good option for larger houses and properties with more than one bathroom. However, heat only boilers are relatively complicated, require a lot of space, are not as efficient as combi boilers, and do not supply hot water on demand, meaning hot water can run out and take time to reheat.

System Boiler Installation

Like combi boilers, system boilers are supplied directly by the mains. System boilers differ from combi boilers in that they store the water they heat in a hot water cylinder, meaning that this type of boiler is more complicated than a combi boiler, and requires more space. However, unlike combi boilers, the hot water cylinder allows system boilers to supply multiple bathrooms with hot water at any one time, making this type of boiler a good choice for households with large or busy families.

Benefits of Installing a New Boiler

Buying a new boiler has many advantages, from helping to reduce your energy bills, to saving you space at home. B. A. Boyle and Son are proud to offer a bespoke boiler installation service, tailored to your unique needs and providing you with the following benefits:

Lower energy bills
Your new boiler is likely to be more modern and efficient than the boiler you are replacing, meaning you won’t spend more money than is necessary on heating.
Smaller carbon footprint
Installing a new boiler will ensure that your appliance is as energy efficient as possible, reducing the amount of fuel that is required to heat your home. Buying and installing a new boiler is an effective way to reduce your energy consumption and, in turn, your carbon footprint, no matter what type of replacement boiler you choose.
Save space
New boilers tend to be smaller and quieter than the old boilers they replace. Installing a new boiler will also give you the opportunity to consider moving your replacement boiler to a more convenient location, whether that’s somewhere with easier access or more out of the way.
Improved water pressure
A new boiler has the potential to significantly improve your hot water pressure, depending on the type of replacement boiler you choose. Our experienced Gas Safe registered engineers can advise you on what type of boiler is most suitable for your property’s unique needs, ensuring that your demands for hot water are met.
Unlimited hot water supply
Installing the right type of boiler for your home can improve your boiler’s efficiency, as well as save you space. Replacing your old boiler and hot water cylinder with a new combi boiler is an effective solution in flats and small houses where space is limited, as combi boilers do not require hot water tanks and only heat up the water you need to use.
Accurate temperature control
Old boilers have a tendency to become unreliable at providing an exact temperature. The installation of a new energy-efficient boiler will enable you to heat your home to the exact temperature you desire.
Make your property more attractive
If you are looking to rent or sell your property, either now or in the future, then replacing your old boiler with an energy-efficient new boiler can make your property more attractive to potential buyers.
Peace of mind
The older your boiler, the more likely it is to require expensive repairs or completely break down. Replacing your old boiler with a modern and energy-efficient new boiler will not only reduce the risk of costly repairs and breakdowns but can also save you money on heating bills. Installing a new boiler will ensure that your boiler is functioning optimally and is less likely to present any issues, giving you one less thing to worry about.

FAQ’s

How much does boiler installation cost?

Boiler installation can be a tricky task to arrange amongst household jobs and busy schedules. The cost of this service can vary significantly depending on a number of factors, including whether or not installation is offered as part of the new boiler purchase price, the model of boiler to be installed, whether or not ‘smart’ extras are to be equipped alongside the boiler, if the boiler location is to be moved, whether or not extra pipework is required, the general complexity of the installation, and the company selected to complete the service. Common add-on services designed to ensure that your new boiler operates as efficiently as possible (such as heating system cleaning) can also add to costs. According to UK averages, installation only costs can range anywhere from £700 at their most simple and basic, to upwards of £3000.

If you’re looking to install a new boiler and are located in the Suffolk area, contact B. A. Boyle and Son for a free consultation call, during which our Gas Safe registered team of engineers will work to establish an approximate price point.

How often should you replace your boiler?

Typically, most boilers last between 10 and 15 years before they become less efficient. Your boiler’s lifespan will depend on how regularly it is serviced and repaired, its usage, and the brand and model you own. However, age is just a number when deciding if your boiler needs replacing. Instead, you should look out for the following warning signs, which can indicate when it’s time to install a new boiler:

- Your boiler is over 15 years old
- Your energy bills are increasing
- The blue flame in your boiler is yellow
- Your boiler is leaking
- Your radiators are taking longer to heat up
- Your boiler is giving off a bad smell
- Your boiler isn’t an ‘A-grade’ boiler
- You are having difficultly finding replacement parts

If you encounter any of these warning signs and are located in the Suffolk area, contact B. A. Boyle and Son today for a free consultation with one of our Gas Safe registered engineers, who will be happy to discuss our bespoke new boiler installation service.

Will a new boiler save me money?

Approximately 60% of household energy costs are spent on heating alone, making boiler efficiency a top priority if you are looking to save money. Installing a new boiler is the best way to ensure that your boiler is as energy-efficient as possible, helping to reduce your energy bills.

While installing a new boiler might seem like an expensive investment, over time, the cost of running an old, inefficient boiler is likely to be greater. Boiler efficiency varies and is generally determined by the age and type of appliance you own. A-rated boilers are more than 90% efficient, while G-rated boilers are just 65% efficient, meaning a third of the money you spend on heating your home could be wasted. The amount of money you could save by installing a new boiler will depend on the efficiency of your current boiler, as well as the type of fuel used to heat your home.

If you are looking to save money on your energy bills, contact B. A. Boyle and Son to arrange a free consultation about our bespoke new boiler installation service.

How much does a new boiler add to house value?

Buying a new boiler will not only help to reduce your energy bills; it can also increase the value of your property by thousands if you are considering selling it. According to GoCompare’s Property Investment Calculator, installing a new boiler can increase the value of your home by up to £8,000. An energy-efficient new boiler is highly valued by potential buyers, making it one of the most profitable home improvements you can invest in.

If you are looking to sell your property and considering installing a new boiler to increase its value, B. A. Boyle’s skilled team of Gas Safe registered engineers are able to help. Simply fill out our online form or contact us over the phone for a free consultation about our bespoke new boiler installation service.

How long does it take to install a new boiler?

Boiler installation can be difficult to fit around a busy schedule, especially if you are unsure how long it will take. As with most installation jobs, the length of time it will take to install your new boiler will vary greatly, as it depends on what needs to be done. While a straightforward replacement can be completed in just a day, a more complex installation – such as installing a different type of boiler or moving your boiler to another location – could take at least twice as long. You should also set aside time for a survey appointment prior to installing your new boiler.

B. A. Boyle and Son are proud to offer a bespoke new boiler installation service, in which our experienced team of Gas Safe registered engineers work will work around your schedule to ensure your convenience. So, if you’re looking to install a new boiler and are located in the Suffolk area, contact us today for a free consultation call, during which our skilled engineers will work with you to establish an approximate time frame.

How do I know what type of boiler I need?

With so many new boilers to choose from, finding the boiler that is most suitable for your property’s unique needs can feel like a daunting task. Buying a new boiler is a significant investment, so it’s crucial to select an appliance that is right for your home.

When choosing a new boiler, there are three main factors to consider: boiler size, boiler type, and fuel type. The boiler you need will be based on the amount of hot water your household is likely to use, the size of your property (including the number of bathrooms, radiators, and floors), and how you intend to fuel your new appliance.

Unfortunately, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ answer when it comes to buying a new boiler. However, B. A. Boyle’s friendly team of Gas Safe registered engineers are happy to advise – simply book in for a free, no-obligation consultation about our new boiler installation service.

What type of boiler is best for a large house?

When buying a new boiler, it is important to consider what type of boiler is best suited to your household’s unique requirements. In the UK, there are three main types of boiler to choose from: combi boilers, heat only boilers (also known as regular or conventional boilers), and system boilers.

Each type of boiler has its own benefits and drawbacks. A large house needs a powerful boiler and so, more often than not, a heat-only or system boiler will be most suitable, as both of these boiler types store hot water in a cylinder. This allows these boiler types to supply multiple bathrooms with hot water at any one time, making them a good choice for households with large or busy families.

If you require more information about what type of boiler is right for you and are based in the Suffolk area, contact B. A. Boyle and Son today for a free consultation with one of our Gas Safe registered plumbing and heating engineers.

Which brand of boiler is the best?

Installing a new boiler is a big investment, so it is important that you select the right appliance. Your new boiler should be reliable, offer maximum value for money, be built to last, and ideally come with a decent warranty, just in case something goes wrong. Based on these characteristics, some of the most trusted and bestselling boiler brands include Worcester Bosch, Viessmann, Alpha, Ideal, and Valliant.

That said, when buying a new boiler, your decision should primarily be based on your property’s unique requirements. If you’re still not sure which boiler is right for you and are based in the Suffolk area, contact B. A. Boyle and Son today to book a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our Gas Safe registered engineers.

Are gas boilers going to be banned?

Currently, 95% of UK homes have central heating, with the majority of boilers fuelled by gas, which is a fossil fuel. Consequently, heating is responsible for around 30% of the UK’s total greenhouse gas emissions.

In line with the government’s commitment to reduce emissions to net-zero by 2050, current plans outline a gas and oil boiler ban in new homes from 2025. The ban will only apply to newbuild properties, meaning you won’t have to get rid of your existing gas boiler. It is still possible that there could be a complete gas boiler ban in the future, but this is unlikely to happen before UK homes are made more energy-efficient by investing in things such as better insulation.

If you are looking to replace your old gas boiler with an energy-efficient new boiler, contact B. A. Boyle and Son today for a free consultation with one of our experienced Gas Safe registered engineers.

What happens during a boiler replacement?

Buying and installing a new boiler can be an overwhelming task to organise, especially when trying to fit the job around a busy schedule. Typically, replacing your boiler will involve a Gas Safe registered engineer removing your old boiler, then fitting the new appliance and any new pipework. The engineer should then test your new boiler and complete any required paperwork for you, before showing you how to use the boiler and any smart controls.

B. A. Boyle and Son understand that arranging the installation of a new boiler can be difficult and are proud to offer a bespoke boiler installation service, from the first phone call through to the installation appointment and beyond. So, if you are considering getting a new boiler installed, contact us today for a free no-obligation consultation with one of our experienced plumbing and heating engineers.
