As you buy a new boiler, you will have to arrange the installation of the unit. The chances of boiler installation cost being included in the price is most probable if you bought your boiler from a professional boiler specialist company. But you may have to work out an independent installation team if you purchased directly from a boiler manufacturer your new boiler.
One of the things you have to find out when you are looking for an independent engineer who would install your new boiler, is if the professional is properly accredited before letting him start on your boiler. If it so happens that the engineer who installed your boiler is not qualified, there is a possibility that the unit will not run as efficiently as it is designed to be, not to mention the hazard of the gas that will come out which would be very dangerous. The first thing that an expert installer will do is to visit your house and make an evaluation of the site where the boiler will be installed, and when he comes back to install, he will bring the necessary equipment to fit the boiler to the area.
The first consideration you need to know when you make an arrangement of the boiler installation is the kind of boiler that will be installed, and this is because different kinds of boilers will have various kinds of limitations of the site where they will be installed. The size of a combi boiler type is small enough to be accommodated in most houses, while the open vent type will need enough area for cold water storage and for the storage of heated water. The location of these two types of boilers vary in the sense that an open vent system is to be placed close to the tanks to maximize its efficiency, while the combi boiler system is to be placed near to the main sources of water where heating occurs. If you plan to replace your old boiler, it is better to place your new one in the same location as the old boiler since the right water pipes are already in place, and you do not have to do other things that will make you spend additional money, thus this is the most cost effective way to do.
Take note that in order to avoid interruption of your hot water supply in the household, do not remove your old boiler before installing the new one, and in this case you will have to make a little sacrifice within the day. After installation is done, the installation engineer has to brief you with the necessary safety checks before starting and using your new boiler so that safety is ensured and efficiency of the system is assured.
