Consider a boiler if you are in the market for a new heating system. This blog post will discuss the benefits of installing a boiler in your home. Stay warm this winter with a brand-new boiler!

Why Choose Boilers?

Boilers are an efficient form of heat transfer. Boilers provide the most consistent heat distribution as they circulate hot water or steam through radiators throughout your home. This results in a comfortable environment with no cold spots. Boilers can be quieter than furnaces because they don't rely on air currents to distribute heat.

Boilers also have a longer life span than traditional heating systems, with some models lasting more than 30 years. Boilers require less frequent repairs, making them both cost-effective and low-maintenance. They are also energy efficient, which can help save you money on your monthly utility bills.

What Are The Benefits of Installing a Boiler?

Installing a boiler in your home has several benefits. Here are some of the most notable advantages:

• Increased Comfort: Boilers provide an even temperature throughout your home, improving comfort levels, especially during the cold winter.

• Cost Savings: As mentioned above, boilers are energy efficient and require less frequent repairs than traditional heating systems. This can result in savings on monthly utility bills and repair costs over the long term.

• Safety: Boilers are safer than standard heating systems because they don't use combustible materials like oil or gas. This reduces the risk of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning.

• Durability: Boilers are long-lasting and require little maintenance, making them a great investment for your home.

If you are looking for a more efficient, comfortable, and cost-effective way to heat your home this winter, consider installing a boiler. Boilers offer many benefits over traditional heating systems, making them an ideal choice for homeowners. With the right maintenance and care, you can look forward to enjoying your new boiler system for years to come.

Types of Boilers

Boilers are available in many models and sizes so that you can find one perfect for your home. There are three main types of boilers--the combi, the conventional, and the system boiler. You'll want to ensure you get the right one before scheduling a boiler fitting.

The Combi Boilers - These boilers are the most popular type and are perfect for smaller homes. They provide both hot water and central heating, making them a space-saving choice.

The Conventional Boilers - Conventional boilers require two separate supplies--one for hot water and one for central heating. These boilers are best suited to larger houses with multiple bathrooms and more than one person living in the home.

The System Boilers - System boilers are ideal for larger homes with multiple bathrooms and showers. They store hot water in a cylinder, so you always have a ready supply of hot water on demand.

Finding the most suitable boiler for your home is an important step in the installation process. A professional installer can help you select the best boiler and install it safely. This is why hiring an experienced and qualified boiler installer is always important.

What Do I Need to Know About Boiler Installations?

Boilers are typically installed in a central location, such as an attic or utility room. Before installation, you should determine the fuel type (natural gas, propane, oil, or electric). You also need to consider your home's water pressure and the size of your home when selecting the type and size of boiler that is best for you.

Installing a boiler requires replacing the old one and connecting pipes, water inlets, and a new boiler flue. If you have any external water tanks, you may need to connect or disconnect them. Hiring a certified Gas Safe  technician is best to ensure the installation is done correctly and safely.

Installation time will take between 1 to 3 days, depending on the required work and the number of components needing replacement. Once your new boiler system is installed, it must be serviced annually to ensure optimal performance. This involves checking the system for wear or damage, flushing out the system, and replacing filters.

The best time to install a boiler is when you are ready to upgrade your home's heating system. Installing a new boiler can greatly improve your home's comfort and efficiency while saving money in the long run. By taking the time to research different types of boilers and finding a certified professional installer, you can ensure that your new boiler will be a great investment for your home.

The cost of installing a boiler will depend on the type of boiler, size, and accessories you choose. Many homeowners can benefit from tax rebates and other incentives when they install a new energy-efficient system. You can save money on your monthly energy bills by making energy-efficient upgrades.

What Do I Have To Prepare For Boiler Installations?

Before beginning the installation process, ensure you have all the necessary components to ensure a safe and successful installation. This includes:

• An appropriate size boiler for your home's needs

• Piping for hot and cold water

• Electrical connections

• Expansion tank for pressure control

• Safety valves

• Flue system

You should also conduct an energy audit of your home before installing a boiler. This will help you choose the right size and type of boiler for your home's needs. Hiring a qualified HVAC technician certified to install boilers will ensure that all components are properly installed and working correctly.

Ensure you also have the right documentation before beginning the installation process. This includes a valid building permit, necessary inspections, and safety certifications.

Installing a boiler can be an overwhelming process, but taking the time to research and select a professional installer will ensure you get the best results for your home's needs. You can get the most out of your new boiler installation with careful planning and research.


Installing a boiler in your home can provide many benefits. From improved comfort to cost savings, there's no doubt that boilers can offer an efficient and comfortable way to heat your home during the cold winter months. Consider the three types of boilers available when deciding which one is best for you. With proper installation and maintenance, you can look forward to taking advantage of the many benefits offered by boilers for years to come.

Happy Customers

Have a look at our outstanding reviews to see how we treat our customers and their homes.

We had a problem with our boiler and complex heating system that other plumbers refused to touch. Paresh took it on, and fixed it very quickly. The visit was swift and easy, and he was very sensitive to our shielding requirements.

Having previously used Rare to do a full system installation, including new heaters, storage tank, new boiler install, bathroom fit & kitchen appliance install and new piping throughout the home, I called upon them again to service our boiler this winter. Pareshs engineers were punctual, they called 15 mins before arriving and methodically explained the work they work going to carry out, serviced the boiler, drained the radiotors and also treated them. They ensured everything was fine and more importantly assured us the system was in perfect order for the winter and made a few adjustments. More importantly then that the engineers completely cleaned up and washed down the working areas leaving our home spotless. Highly recommend this company for all your plumbing needs.

Paresh is unusual for a London tradesman -- he comes when he says he will come, he charges what he says he will charge, and the workmanship is always first class. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
