Furnace Installation Service

If you’re here, then you’ve probably got questions about boilers. And you’re in luck, because we’ve got the answers! Here are the answers to three of the most frequently asked questions about and related to boilers.

What are the different kinds of boilers?

There are three main kinds of boilers. Those are: combi, heat only, and system. Heat only boilers are also known as conventional or regular boilers, and work with a cylinder in your airing cupboard. System boilers are more often found in modern homes, typically with an “unvented” hot water cylinder. Lastly, combi boilers produce hot water instantly.

How do I choose between different brands of boilers?

There are many different brands and types of boilers to choose from, so it can be a pretty daunting task to face. However, if you reach out to your local boiler installation company, they can help you narrow down the brand of boiler that works best for your home and budget, that will give you the optimal efficiency, comfort, and reliability that you need in your home.

How often should I have my boiler replaced?

Typically, a well-maintained boiler will last around fifteen years. You want to make sure that you have your boiler serviced on at least an annual basis as is recommended in order to make sure that it lasts as long as possible. However, once your boiler is fifteen years or older, it generally has to work much harder to heat your home, so it’s likely a good time to look into replacing it with a newer, more efficient model.
