Confused between what to focus and what not while purchasing a boiler?

Getting a new boiler installed can be challenging at times, especially in terms of expense, if your old boiler faces a breakdown during winters. So to help you make an effortless purchase we have mentioned a few points that you, being a buyer, must consider before investing into a new boiler.

Have a look!!

Reliability

The low cost unknown boilers might sound tempting but make sure you don’t fall for them as this can make your way straight to the boiler’s repair that are far more expensive than they look. Only the highly reliable and recommended brands should be shortlisted for consideration before making a purchase, otherwise you might end up going for frequent repairs. Therefore, a boiler from a highly reliable brand is much recommended as it would be comparatively less faulty and would require low maintenance.

After sales support

Choose a brand that has maintained a good reputation for after services and repairs because product warranty is an important & considerable factor. Most of the boiler breakdowns are a result of poor installations so make sure you get the boiler installed by the company itself because in case of getting a boiler from a reliable brand, installed by someone else, the manufacturers may cost you repair if they determine a fault in installation. So fall for a brand that is well known for it’s after sale support or you would end up paying off.

Size

Boilers are available in a number of sizes to suit your comfort. So therefore, Size, being and important factor depends upon how much space are you willing to lend for the installation.

Capacity

The heating capacity of the boiler is another important factor worth considering that depends upon the no. of bathrooms available at your place or the no. of family members you have.

Professional advice

Consider having a word with your boiler’s engineer before making a purchase because they are one of the easiest source of information you would ever come across. He/she can guide you the best on which boiler would suit you the most in terms of size, capacity and efficiency as they are proven experts in analyzing the house and determining the best choice. Though, most of them are incentivized by certain brands for giving a biased opinion, make sure you consider their advice but do not blindly follow them.

Efficiency
