Boiler Replacements and Upgrades

Why Should You Replace or Upgrade Your Boiler?

Yearly energy bills can be easily reduced by fitting an A-Rated energy efficient boiler. The boilers we recommend come with an average warranty between 2 and 5 years from the manufacturer. On top of that you get a 10 year guarantee for the primary heat exchangers.

Boiler repairs & central heating servicing is recommended on a yearly basis. This is to ensure your system is at peak performance and to maintain your annual heating bills. We can help renovate your kitchen and bathroom to your requirements. This includes moving appliances, pipework and adding or moving radiators

“In fact, if your boiler is over 10 years old, then it’s probably worth investing in a new one. In most cases the savings you make from a more efficient boiler over the years will pay for the outlay.”

Upgrade To An A-Rated Energy Efficient Boiler

Building regulations state that if you are upgrading an old boiler a new hot water system, then it must be A-rated for energy efficiency. This means the boiler should be at least 88% efficient to continue using it.

To reach this requirement you will want to upgrade to the new-style of condensing central heating systems and boilers.

Plan For A Boiler Replacement

Surviving without a boiler in the winter can be challenging. Nobody wants to have no heating & hot water in the winter. It makes sense to book for your boiler to be serviced early.

This allows time for parts to be ordered, rather than waiting until the boiler stops working. By planning ahead, it gives you time and shop around rather than quickly arranging an emergency replacement.

Gas Safe Accredited Installers are usually busier during winter. If your boiler breaks down then, you will have to wait several weeks before a Hampshire plumbing and heating specialist can arrange an assessment to install a new hot water system.

House Cavity & Loft Insulation

When planning the installation of a new boiler, you should double check your residential premises are adequately insulated. Checking this is important because an insulated home retains heat in your home, so you might be able to meet your heating needs using smaller (and cheaper) hot water system.

Loft insulation and cavity wall insulation are reasonably cost-effective and you will typically see a return on investment in less than 5 years by reducing your monthly heating bills.

Free Estimates From Plumbing Hampshire

If you to upgrade to an upgraded boiler you should request at least 3 plumbing quotes from qualified heating specialists within Hampshire. The companies that have been shortlisted should be on the Gas Safe Register or registered with OFTEC for oil-based heating systems. It is illegal (and dangerous) for an unqualified person to fit & service central heating boilers.
