Buying a new boiler would also mean you have to install it. If you bought your boiler from a professional boiler specialist company, in most probability the boiler installation is already included in the price of the boiler. But you may have to work out an independent installation team if you purchased directly from a boiler manufacturer your new boiler.
If you are planning of hiring an independent engineer to install your new boiler, it is recommended that the person has proper accreditation before working on your unit. If it so happens that the engineer who installed your boiler is not qualified, there is a possibility that the unit will not run as efficiently as it is designed to be, not to mention the hazard of the gas that will come out which would be very dangerous. The process of installation by an expert installer would start in the assessment of your area where the boiler will be installed, and then when installation time comes, all the necessary equipment and tools will be brought to properly conduct the job.
The first consideration you need to know when you make an arrangement of the boiler installation is the kind of boiler that will be installed, and this is because different kinds of boilers will have various kinds of limitations of the site where they will be installed. The size of a combi boiler type is small enough to be accommodated in most houses, while the open vent type will need enough area for cold water storage and for the storage of heated water. Also, the location of a combi boiler system is generally close to the water’s main source for heating, while an open vent boiler system is necessarily be located as close to the tanks in order for the efficiency to be maximized. If you are changing your old boiler to a new one, the most cost efficient way for you to do is to install the new boiler at the site of the old because the right water pipes are already in place and you do not have to do other things that will make you incur some costs.
Note that if you remove your old boiler before installing your new one, the supply of your hot water will be interrupted for some period, although not as long as a day to disrupt your operation. After installation is done, the installation engineer has to brief you with the necessary safety checks before starting and using your new boiler so that safety is ensured and efficiency of the system is assured.
