Things to consider before buying a boiler

As a boiler installation is an important and expensive affair, there are a number of factors that you should take into consideration before taking the plunge. These include:

KW output/The size of the boiler – This is one of the main factors to take into consideration when purchasing a new boiler system. A kW output dictates a boiler’s ability to cope with your household’s heating and hot-water needs. The required output tends to be reliant on the number of bathrooms and radiators that are present within your home, so if your household tends to have high central heating demands, you may need a boiler with a higher kW output. It would also be beneficial for you to think about the physical size of the boiler and establish the types of dimensions that would be able to fit comfortably in your home.

Here’s an estimated guide of kW outputs to help you determine the type of boiler that could be suitable for your home:

24-27kW1-2 bedroom, 10 radiators, 1 bathroom
28-34kW3-4 bedroom, 15 radiators, 1-2 bathroom
35-42kW4+ bedroom, 20 radiators, 2+ bathroom

When’s the right time to get a new boiler – Isle of Man

On average, boilers last between 10 and 15 years. So, if your boiler is coming up to this age, it may be time for you to consider getting a new one installed. Besides their age, there are a number of other reasons for replacing your old boiler system. This could include:

  • Beyond economical repair (BER) – In some cases, it can be more cost-effective to replace your boiler than to organise for it to be repaired. For example, if you have an old boiler that is prone to faults, instead of constantly paying to get it repaired, you could invest in a brand-new boiler system.
  • Moving the system – If you’re unhappy with the location that your boiler is in, installing a brand-new boiler could be more worthwhile. It could also potentially be less-hassle as you’ll have the option to upgrade your system and get a more energy-efficient source of central heating.
  • Current system fails to meet your needs – Many homeowners opt for a boiler replacement if they find that their current system struggles to meet their heating and hot-water needs. For example, a homeowner whose property has high hot-water and heating demands may choose to install a boiler with a higher kW output.
  • Low energy-efficiency rating – Boilers with low energy-efficiency ratings could cause higher energy bills. It could therefore be beneficial for homeowners with low-efficiency boiler systems to invest in a system that has higher levels of energy-efficiency, as this could enable more savings! The Isle of Man government is keen to promote the installation of A-rated energy-efficient boilers, in order to increase savings as well as protect the environment.
  • Selling/renting your property – A house with a new boiler fitted could be more appealing to buyers and tenants than a home with an older and potentially less energy-efficient system. It could therefore be beneficial for you to invest in a boiler if you plan on selling your home, as this could enhance buyer/tenant interest.
