Tips for Choosing a New Boiler

Make sure you get a reliable model

It may save you money in the short term, but a cheap boiler may end up costing you a lot more in the long run. If you choose a lower-quality boiler for your home, you may find yourself paying for expensive boiler repair work more frequently.

At ImpraGas, we aim to provide our customers with the best quality products AND the best quality service. Therefore, we only install reliable boilers whose quality we can vouch for ourselves.

Look for good aftercare support

It’s easy to assume that, as long as your boiler has a good warranty, you don’t need to worry about aftercare. But this simply isn’t true: if you have any problems with your boiler, you may find that the manufacturer’s policy is to ask the installer to return and check the boiler before they will send someone out themselves.

Therefore, it is important to make sure that the business you purchase your boiler from provide good aftercare support and are prepared come and help in the event of a boiler breakdown. With any ImpraGas boiler, we provide a 10 year service plan alongside the manufacturer’s parts and labour warranty.

Make the right choice for your home

There are many different types of gas boiler available, so it’s important to pick the right one for your household and for the property itself. The different types of gas boilers are:

  • Combi boiler, which provides heat for your radiators and domestic hot water on demand
  • Heat only / conventional boiler, which will use a hot water storage cylinder and a large cold water feed tank
  • System boiler, which is similar to a heat-only but does not need the space for a cold water tank

It is best to decide what type of boiler would work best within your home before you start shopping around – that way, you will have a better idea of what you’re looking for.

Check the efficiency of your boiler

Want to reduce your carbon footprint and save money on energy bills? Your choice of boiler can have a huge impact on this – a more efficient boiler will reduce the amount of CO2 produced while also bringing down your total heating spend.
