Boiler Installation: What to Expect

When a boiler breaks down, repair is not always possible or economical, which means that installation of a new system is the only option. If you are facing the installation of a replacement boiler system, here are the steps that you can expect to go through.

1. Finding the Right Installer

Finding an installer to work with is the initial step in the installation of a new boiler. Many people like to get quotes from multiple installers before deciding which one they prefer.

Bear in mind that the cheapest quote is not always the best option. Some quotes might include a more energy-efficient boiler that costs you less to run, a guarantee, or future service from your installer. Be sure to read each quote carefully so you understand what it includes.

2. Preparing for Installation

Typically, boiler system installation is completed in one session, which can last for several hours. However, if the installer needs to make extensive adjustments to the pipework that already exists in your home, the installation could take longer. Check with your installer so you know how long the process is likely to take.

You can make the installation as quick and easy as possible by taking the time to prepare your home before the installation team arrives. Move your possessions and furniture away from the boiler so that the installers can easily access and remove it. Fill a few bottles or containers with water so you have enough to drink while the water supply is briefly switched off to allow the installers to connect up the new boiler.

3. Becoming Familiar With Your New Boiler

Before the installers leave, they should give you a brief introduction to your new boiler. This introduction should show you how to switch the boiler off and on and how to work any timers or thermostat controls. They should also give you an owner's manual so you can refer to the instructions if you need them.

Be sure to familiarise yourself with any maintenance that you will need to do to keep the boiler system running well. For example, you might need to adjust the system pressure every so often or bleed the radiators. If your new boiler is a smart boiler, you might also need to spend a little time learning to work its additional functions so that the system always produces hot water and heat when you need it.
