A Combination Boiler (also known as a Combi Boiler) is extremely efficient, especially compared to older oil boilers, and can run at an affordable cost. They work as both a water heating system and a central heating system, hence the name 'Combi.'
One of the best-accredited Combination boilers is known as the Worcester Bosch. It instantly heats your water from the mains, so you don't have to worry about being cold, and it can be trusted to provide warmth throughout your home.
They are usually used in smaller homes due to them being compact, and they don't require tanks that need to be stored. These boilers are the number one choice today, with some great reviews. Our customers trust our company, and our friendly plumbers and heating engineers will always get the job done!
Heat Only Boilers
Heat-only boilers are the most common boilers you see, and they are mainly found within older and larger homes due to the amount of space required.
These types of boilers come with five parts to it, including the boiler itself, the controls for regulating the temperature, a hot water cylinder and two tanks, one for cold water storage and the other for the feed and expansion, which are kept in the loft space.
System boilers don't require a feed and expansion tank; however, they work almost the same as regular boilers (heat-only boilers).
They can be used in small homes and buildings as they don't need much storage space, but there must always be room for the storage tank that holds your hot water.
Does a combi boiler add value to a house?
A new Combi Boiler will definitely add value to a house, as buyers are looking for affordable and efficient central heating systems that they can rely on to use on a day-to-day basis.
Can anyone install a gas boiler?
It is so important to get your gas boiler installed by a professional heating engineer with a lot of experience.
The engineer must be Gas Safe Registered, knowing the exact way and policy they must follow and will put the customers' safety first.
All our engineers and plumbers have a Gas Safe Certificate that they can show you as proof during installation.
How much does it cost to put in a boiler UK?
Given they're one of the most common boiler types you're likely to find in homes across the UK, we'll use combi boilers as an example here. For the new boiler unit itself, prices range from £1,500 to £3,500, including installation costs. The main factors affecting this price are how difficult or complex your installation process is, the type of boiler you want, and labour costs in your local area. This last one shouldn't come as a surprise for homeowners.
The price of manual work can differ dramatically between locations, with London boiler installations being some of the most expensive in the country. Therefore, if you live in an area with high labour costs, you may need to compromise on other areas with your boiler installation, such as having it installed in an easier place to reach or choosing a cheaper boiler unit. Ultimately, most people will wind up with installation costs somewhere in the middle of the range mentioned above.
How long does it take a plumber to install a boiler?
The time it takes to install your boiler depends on the type of installation you want. Here we'll give you two examples from either end of the scale:
- Boiler Swap:In this scenario, you simply remove your old boiler and put a new one in. This is the installation process most people opt for when their boilers break or become too old. Since you aren't changing the location of your new boiler unit, you can use all the same water and gas pipes the old boiler did. This installation process usually takes between 4-6 hours.
- Completely New Boiler: If you've never had a boiler in your home, the time it will take to install a new one is roughly the same as having an old boiler relocated. While your Gas Safe registered engineer won't have to spend time removing the old boiler unit, that time will be taken up in creating entirely new connections to your water and gas mains. This installation process usually takes between 1-2 days.
Do I need new radiators with a new boiler?
Again, this depends on the state of your central heating system. If you're replacing your boiler because it is too old, the chances are that your radiators will also be too old. Since you should be replacing your radiators every 15-20 years, it may be worthwhile to have them replaced simultaneously to improve your home's heating efficiency. Modern radiators have updated features that make them much more energy efficient than older models.
Will a new boiler add value to my house?
While it may only seem like a small thing, installing a replacement boiler in your home will increase its value by up to 2%. So, for a home with an initial value of £200,000, installing a new boiler will add up to £4,000. Even if your installation falls at the higher end of the price range, you'll still make money on your overall investment. Regardless of whether you'll stay in your home for years after installing a new boiler, so long as it remains under its warranty, your new boiler will boost the price you can ask for your home when you decide to sell.
How long do boilers usually last?
As you can imagine, several factors affect how long you can expect your boiler to last. These include the plumbing in your property, how many people in your home will use it, and how often they'll use it. However, 15 years is the average lifespan of a boiler. Therefore, if your boiler is older than this, you may want to consider replacing it with a new unit.
Will a new boiler heat my house better?
Technology constantly changes, meaning if you have a boiler that is around 15 years old, chances are it will be very outdated. Therefore, it's safe to assume that installing a new boiler with modern features will heat your house better. Besides improved heating efficiency, other benefits of new boilers include:
- Heating speed
- More comfortable temperatures
- Easier temperature control
- Reduced energy bills
- Lower carbon footprint
New warranty covering faults and boiler breakdowns
