Things to think about before getting a new boiler installed 

A new boiler is a substantial financial commitment, and there are several factors to consider before making a decision.


A highly reliable boiler may save you a lot of money in the long term, especially on any unexpected repair costs that may emerge. Our gas engineers will gladly recommend a selection of reliable boilers! Budget, mid-range, and luxury versions are all available. When you have a boiler installed by VFR Plumbing, Heating & Gas, you can also schedule your next annual boiler service to guarantee that it runs smoothly for the rest of its lifespan.

Timeline for Installation 

Depending on the amount of work necessary, the installation of your new boiler could take anywhere from one to five days. This is critical to consider, especially if you need your new boiler installed soon. Our boiler installers always advocate having your boiler installed during the summer when your household will be utilising less hot water because of the time it takes!

The location of the new boiler 

The position of your new boiler, especially if you choose a boiler with additional storage tanks, may have a considerable impact on the layout of your home.

Which Boiler Type is right for you

There are many types of boilers with the most popular type being a conventional combi boiler. The various types of boilers suit different needs and households. What are the options for boiler installation?

Combi boilers

As mentioned these are a popular type of boiler due to convenience and efficiency. Combi boilers heat up water directly from the mains supply meaning that you are only heating up the water that you need. With a combi boiler, there is no need for any water tanks meaning converting to a combi boiler can often free up space in your home. 

Conventional boilers

Conventional boilers heat up water using large water tanks. This more traditionally designed boiler works well in households where water pressure is low as your water pressure is not coming directly from the mains. 

VFR Plumbing & Heating can guide you through the process of selecting a new boiler that’s right for you.

System boilers

Since its introduction, system boilers have been a popular choice in newer homes. They work in conjunction with a hot water cylinder, which is normally found in an airing cupboard or similar location. However, because system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they are a preferable choice for some homeowners, particularly those considering a loft conversion. 

Instead, they're designed with built-in circulating pumps and are frequently thought to be easier to install from scratch because there's one fewer component to consider (the water tank). 

System boilers also require programming for heat and hot water, which is not available immediately. However, the cylinder can retain water hot for later use, so as long as you set your timer and leave it on long enough to heat the water you'll need for the day, you shouldn't have to wait long for your bathwater.

Reasons to Upgrade your boiler

If you're noticing that your boiler is starting to show its age, it could it’s time for an upgrade. You should consider a boiler upgrade if: 

Your boiler is over 12 years old

Unfortunately, even well looked after boilers have a limited lifespan. Fortunately, if you are upgrading from an older boiler, you’ll notice a big difference in your monthly boiler cost that could even make up the cost of a replacement boiler.

Your monthly bills are increasing 

It’s normal to see a slight increase in your heating bills as your boiler ages. However, if you are noticing a sharp increase in your bills it might be a good time for a replacement.

Frequent boiler breakdowns 

A well-serviced boiler shouldn’t be prone to frequent breakdowns and a boiler showing its age will likely experience frequent breakdowns and faults. Modern boilers have been designed with longevity in mind with some including long warranties on their products.
