Just like everything else, our boilers get old and start to lose their zest for life. They might start to show signs of wear and tear and this is when minor problems occur. These could go unnoticed, or you might simply put up with them. However, before long, your boiler will deteriorate to a point where you need a replacement boiler installed. Dulwich Plumber Limited understand that this is the news that nobody wants to hear. Therefore, our engineers will conduct their work in a thorough manner, making sure your new boiler will keep you and your family warm for many years.
Our team are dedicated to the installation of all varieties of boilers, heaters and air conditioning installations too. We have over ten years of experience of growing more and more customers. These include individuals, companies, public entities and neighbouring Dulwich communities. We keep our new boiler prices and warranties ultra-competitive when installing Vaillant boilers and always doing it with the utmost professionalism.
Unfortunately, boilers do not live forever. At some point, the heating of the water will break down or become unusable. Do you remember when you bought your current boiler? Like a lot of people, it was probably so long ago that nobody remembers anything like that. Maybe it has become old and tired and the time has come for an improvement.
So here is a 6 step guide to replace the boiler, one of the most essential elements of your heating system:
Observe the Vaillant boiler and the heating system already installed. It is likely to be one of these 3 types:
• High pressure system (without ventilation) with separate hot water cylinder.
• Combi Boiler.
• Gravity feed system with separate hot water cylinder.
Not sure? That’s not surprising as central heating can be complicated and should only be handled by trained professionals. This is because several fuels and electricity are contained in a small space for combustion, that is, the controlled use of fire to heat the water and your home.
If the boiler heats the hot water immediately and there’s no cylinder of hot water, it’s most likely a combi system. If there is a cylinder for hot water and an overflow tank that is probably in an attic, then it is likely to be a gravity fed system. The high pressure system, or no ventilation, produces water at the network pressure and is the least common of the three.
The next step is to think about the replacement. There are some other factors that could influence this, such as satisfaction with your current hot water system, the possibility of solar heating and how difficult it can be to upgrade to a condensing boiler.
Your choice of boiler could also be affected by the number of parts your current home heating needs replacing. The boiler replacement cost may also come into the equation.
If a combi boiler is in place and you are happy with it, then a new boiler similar to the old one could be a good plan. For a greater production of hot water, it is possible to obtain a more powerful Ideal boiler.
Gravity-fed systems are more complex. They are rarely recommended for new installations because then a loft tank might be necessary. But if gravity feed is your preferred option, then you will need a system boiler or a heat-only boiler. A heat-only boiler has an external pump, which could cost more.
A high pressure system usually requires a new version of the old one. Although, it could be considered a boiler only of heat in front of a boiler system.
Since 2003, many new Worcester boilers have been of the condensing variety. These are more efficient and save money on fuel but require external drainage. This could be a good option, but may require re-positioning. A condensate pump and a drain pipe will need fitting, so insulation may be necessary.
This can be a good option if you are replacing a cylinder of hot water. A double-coil cylinder is connected to a solar panel that generates electricity. In summer, hot water will probably be free, but may need to be filled in the winter.
This has evolved in recent years – and your consultant or your boiler technician can explain to you about modern heating installations. For example, gas supply pipes or boiler lines may need improvement.
If you’ve any doubts about the final costs in connection with the installation / purchase of Ideal boilers, contact us. Since without advice it is very likely that the extras, such as the improvement of a boiler flue, will increase the cost considerably more.
Given the complexity and safety issues associated with the installation of a new boiler and domestic heating, we recommend calling experts to request a full budget for replacing the boiler.
