New Boiler FAQs

If your home needs a new boiler, it is likely you haven’t had to deal with replacing one in the last decade or so and we know you will have a lot of questions. We have answered the top questions regarding costs and the practice of replacing your old boiler, to make sure everything runs smoothly.

What boiler efficiency should I look for?

When looking for a new boiler, you should always look out for an A rated efficiency. This means that your boiler will be at least 90% efficient, the equivalent of wasting less than 10p in every £1 of energy.

What is a condensing boiler?

As of 2004, all new boilers are required to be condensing boilers as they are more efficient- wasting less money and energy.
In a condensing boiler, gas that would be previously wasted is now condensed, allowing it to be reused. This cycle is continuous, meaning much less energy is wasted overall.

Do I need to service my new boiler?

Yes- you should service your new boiler no more than twelve months after it has been installed. This may seem unnecessary, but regular servicing is key to keeping your boiler in good shape for as long as possible.
You should continue to service your boiler every twelve months, just to keep the risk of breakdowns as low as possible - saving you money long term.

How long should a new boiler last?

If you care for your boiler correctly, it can last between 10 and 15 years. As with anything- the better you take care of it, the longer it will last.
Linking to the question above, annual servicing is the best way to keep your new boiler up and running for as long as possible.

Who should install my new boiler?

You should only let a Gas Safe registered engineer perform any gas work on your house- especially installing a new boiler.
