Boiler replacement can be daunting as many people don’t fully understand what they’re looking for. From choosing the most energy efficient to who should install it, here we will discuss just some considerations which should be made when considering a boiler replacement.
There are a few different options when it comes to buying and installing your new boiler; you can use a boiler replacement company who will help you choose a boiler and install it, some energy companies also offer complete boiler replacement services or you can buy direct. When buying direct it is essential you do not install the boiler yourself; you must have a Gas Safe registered engineer install it as it is illegal to do so yourself.
It is important to consider the best options for your company, as being drawn in by a low-cost boiler replacement could end up being more costly in the future. Higher priced boilers are premium because they offer long term investment and may remain energy efficient for longer; reducing your costs in the long run.
When purchasing a new boiler, you may be reluctant to spend a large amount of money, but a high quality replacement may help to save you money. Should there come a point where the cost of your boiler repairs is mounting, a replacement may become more cost effective.
It is essential that your boiler is running efficiently in order to save energy; both in terms of cost and in reducing emissions. The UK legally has to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and part of this comes from ensuring businesses are being energy efficient; by regularly servicing your boiler and replacing when necessary you can play your part in helping the environment.
It is a requirement of the Gas Safety Installation & Use Regulations 1988 that every employer maintains any gas appliance under their control in a safe condition.
As well as saving energy and repair costs, a properly serviced boiler is much safer. When your boiler is not having regular services, it is far more likely to have dangerous faults. It is important to understand that a boiler is not something to be left, it needs to have regular maintenance checks to run safely and effectively.
Regularly servicing your boiler is important as it helps to keep your business running smoothly. A broken boiler could affect your business in many ways, and the time taken to repair could lead to large amounts of downtime. Regular maintenance can help prevent this from happening and your business can continue to run smoothly. Boiler inspections can also be arranged outside of working hours, to cause minimal disruption to your business.
It is essential that you have your boiler regularly serviced for several reasons, including helping to extend the life of your boiler and to stop any major malfunctions from occurring. It will also help to keep your boiler running efficiently, which will in turn stop your energy bills from rising unnecessarily.
Having a facilities management company on hand to regularly service your boiler will help to ensure inspections are conducted on a regular basis. These scheduled inspections will ensure your boiler is still running efficiently and safely.
Lastly, it is important to consider the warranty when purchasing a new boiler. As boiler replacements aren’t cheap it is important to pay attention to the warranties; if there is an option to purchase an extended warranty this this should always be considered as it could save you money in the long term.
