Once you have chosen and purchased a new boiler, boiler installation is the next step to think about. Correct installation is actually one of the most important parts of getting a new boiler. Even though you may have spent a long time choosing a (potentially expensive) boiler which is incredibly energy efficient and has smart technology temperature sensors, this time and money will be wasted if the boiler is not installed correctly. Not only is an incorrectly installed boiler a potentially lethal hazard, but it is also highly likely to be less efficient than a boiler which has been installed correctly. Even if you think you are saving money on what seems like a boiler installation Birmingham bargain installation price, you may actually end up losing money if your boiler is not running at its maximum efficiency or if you need to pay for someone else to come in and correct a “botched job”.
If you buy your boiler from a boiler sales specialist, it is highly likely that the price of your purchase will include boiler installation by one of the company’s specialist engineers. It is well worth paying a little more for a boiler if installation is included in the cost, because these installation engineers will be well trained specialists who have expert knowledge of the types of boilers they will be installing. Because they know a lot about the boilers they install and maintain, they should arrive at your home with all the necessary tools to get your new boiler up and running within a few hours.
If you choose to buy a boiler where the initial purchase cost does not include boiler installation, then you will have to try to find a reputable boiler installation engineer to fit your system. It is a good idea to find a local installation company, because if you did have any problems with your boiler after they have installed it, then they will be able to come back to your property with ease.
Always choose a boiler engineer who has a fully list of qualifications and credentials and displays these qualifications proudly on their website. If you are having a gas boiler installed, it is incredible important to ensure that the engineer you choose is qualified to work with gas, because incorrectly installed gas boilers are incredibly dangerous. In the UK, boiler installation engineers who work with gas boilers must be on the Gas Safe Register, which shows that they have the required qualifications. Each engineer on the Gas Safe Register has a unique code number and identification card, and if you want to ensure that your engineer is Gas Safe, you can actually ask them to show you their card, and even visit the Gas Safe Register internet site to verify their credentials. Never, ever have a gas boiler installed by somebody who does not have genuine Gas Safe credentials. If the boiler is installed incorrectly, or damage occurs to your property, it is unlikely that your home insurance will cover the cost of damage done by unqualified workers.
