Install Your Boilers Now!
If you have just purchased a new boiler, you will need to arrange for boiler installation. Before you buy yourself a boiler, always consider whether you will be buying from a professional boiler company or from a boiler manufacturer, because if you buy from a professional company who specializes in boilers, then there is a chance that your purchase comes along with a free boiler installation, whereas if you have bought a boiler from a boiler manufacturer that you really need to get a separate installation for your boiler because it is still not included to the money that you paid. If you are finding an independent engineer to install your new boiler, make sure that they are properly accredited before they start work on your boiler.
If ever that you already have installed a gas boiler, then it is required for the engineer that you hired to work with gas. Having your boiler installed by an unqualified engineer will not only mean that the boiler might not run as efficiently as it is designed to, but a badly installed boiler can also be very, very dangerous, especially if gas is involved. Once you have already found a qualified engineer that could do the installation of your boiler, then most likely, the engineer would ask you if he or she can go to your home, because the engineer would look at the area of installation and in that way, the engineer can also prepare all the necessities that he or she must bring upon working with the installation of your boiler.
As the owner of your boiler, it is highly recommended to know the type of boiler that you bought because each boilers have different limitations when it comes to the installation process in your area, hence, the type of boiler must always be considered prior to its installation. Whilst combi boilers are small enough to place in most homes, open vent systems will require enough space for two separate water tanks – one for cold water storage, and one where the heated water will be stored. If cold water storage tank is required, then most likely, it will be positioned in the loft of your property. However, as for the case of an open vent boiler system, it should be placed close to the tank for maximum efficiency, unlike the combi boilers system where it is usually placed near the main source of water so that it will be heated. If you are unsure on the best site to have your boiler installed, discuss your ideas with an installation engineer, and they will be able to advise you on the best possible places and any other limitations there may be.
