Choosing The Right Specifications

In order to make the most of your budget when getting a boiler installed it is crucial to select one with the right specifications to provide central heating and water heating throughout your home. There are a number of factors which will affect the boiler required for a given property including how well the property is insulated, how large the property is and what heating and water system is already in place. If a house is well insulated then this will often mean that a smaller boiler is required. It is a good idea to speak to an experienced engineer at a boiler installation company such as Gastech in order to discuss different boilers that are available and ensure that you are selecting the right boiler for your home.

Combi Boilers

A combi boiler offers functionality which can provide central heating in addition to heating water within one boiler. This is one of the most popular options for boiler installation as it provides a simple and effective solution to central heating and water heating throughout a home. Choosing a combi boiler is a cost-effective option as it means that it is only necessary to install one boiler in a home. Alternatives to combi boilers include system boilers which use a cylinder to store hot water and regular boilers which also store hot water and are typically used in homes with heating systems which are open-vented.

Additional Features

An increasingly popular option is using a smart thermostat to control a boiler. This can increase energy efficiency and provide significantly more control over a boiler. There is a wide range of options available for smart thermostats offering differing functionality. Core functions include the ability to easily regulate and time the heating in a house. Many smart thermostats will also offer options such as allowing for heating control over a smartphone or setting heating based on weather forecasts.
