Buying a new boiler is one of the most significant and essential purchases that you will ever make. There are many items to consider before you invest. P&D Mechanical can help you through every phase of boiler replacement from design to completion. Below is a short guide to buying a boiler in 2018. If you can have any further questions, feel free to contact us.
What to Look for in a Quality Boiler
All boilers are designed to perform one function: heat your home. From there, you can choose from a wide array of features, sizes, and brands. When you start breaking it down, you’ll notice that quality boilers have the same characteristics. Some of these include:
High Efficiency. These days, everything is about saving money and saving energy. Therefore, you should only look at high-efficiency boilers. Anything else is a waste of your time and money. A high-efficiency boiler could save you $200 to $300 on your heating bills.
Low CO2 Emissions. In addition to efficiency, manufacturers are now engineering boilers to emit less CO2 into the environment. This is a feature that keeps your home safe. Poisoning can occur in the house if you have a model that does not feature reduced CO2 emissions.
Long Lasting. A standard boiler should last for at least 15 years. High-end boilers can last up to 25 years. Before we install a boiler for you, make sure you look at the warranty and do some research on the product. Do not waste your money on a model that lasts less than 15 years. You’ll also be dealing with more repairs and maintenance along the way.
Heating Capacity. How powerful is the boiler? How hard will it have to work to heat your home? You should ask these questions when thinking about heating capacity, efficiency, and cost. It is possible to purchase a boiler that is either too small or too large for your home, so base your decision on the square footage of the building. Keep in mind; the boiler has to heat every room, not just the rooms your family inhabits.
Other Items to Consider for Boiler Replacement
Before we set the installation date, there are some other questions you’ll need to ask yourself. We’ll perform a thorough inspection of your home and the current system. Many of these questions will be answered during this time.
● Where will the unit be installed? Does this location need to change and why?
● How often will you use the unit? What is your family’s consumption rate?
● Will you be selling your home anytime soon or will you live in it for at least a decade?
● Do you foresee any building expansions down the road?
● What is your bottom line budget? Have you considered everything you’ll be purchasing for the boiler installation?
