Important Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Boiler

Boilers are an efficient heating system for your residential and commercial properties. With different kinds of boilers available these days, they have a wide range of features that usually perform the same function. Boilers heat water and distribute it through a piping network that channels through the floors, ceiling or walls. Most boilers are usually powered by oil, diesel fuel, natural gas or propane.

Modern boilers are also powered with electricity. Newer boiler systems have received great praise for their higher efficiency. Here, we provide you with a quick guide about boiler installation in London for your house and office. If you are into the market for purchasing a new boiler, then we will tell you about its different features and benefits of choosing a new model.

3 Kinds of boilers

Boilers, also known as central heating systems, are installed in the middle of the building. Their positioning enables the heating unit to distribute in an even way to every room. We provide boiler service in London to our valuable customers. Usually, boilers fall under three categories and these are:

  • Gas-fired boilers – These are fueled by either propane or natural gas that make them energy-efficient. Natural gas is usually less expensive in comparison to propane.
  • Oil-fired boilers – Most companies use oil-fired boilers when there is less supply of propane or natural gas. By choosing oil-fired boilers, the oil will be delivered to you and the costs will affect overall price of the oil.
  • Electric boilers – Electric boilers use less energy than oil-fired or gas boilers. However, electricity is not very efficient like fuel-based systems even though electric models seem to be more fuel efficient. Thus, you should know how much money you will be able to save by making investment in an electric boiler.

Apart from boiler installation and repair, we also provide emergency plumbing services in London.

Things to keep in mind when purchasing a boiler

After knowing about different kinds of boilers to choose from, other factors need to be considered before deciding the right model to purchase. For example, you will have to consider the following:

  • Climate – A boiler is the right choice for your house if you stay in cold climate. Also, a central heating system will keep your home warm, despite how cold it is outside.
  • Type of fuel – It may be difficult to understand which kind of fuel will be cost-effective. If the heating oil prices increase, then gas-fuel boilers may be the suitable choice for you. This will actually depend on the kind of fuel available in your area.
  • Size – The size of the unit being installed in your house helps to determine how efficient your boiler is. A larger unit uses less energy since it will heat your house quickly. Our heating specialists can determine the right system for you.
  • Heating only – Boilers will heat your home only but not cool it. We will have to install an air conditioner separately so that you may keep your house cool in the summertime

Thus, whatever kind of boiler you may install in your house, you may depend on our boiler repair service in London.
