What Factors Can Affect The Installation Time? 

There are several factors that can affect how long it takes to install a new boiler, such as: 

– The type of boiler you choose: Combi boilers are usually quicker to install than other types of boilers as they don’t require additional tanks or cylinders. 

– The condition of your existing pipework: If your home needs any additional work to accommodate the new boiler, this can extend the installation time. 

– Whether you need a power flush: A power flush is often recommended when installing a new boiler as it cleans the pipework and removes any potential blockages. This usually takes around 1 day to complete. 

What Can You Do To Prepare For Your New Boiler? 

There are a few things you can do to prepare for your new boiler, such as: 

– Choose the right location for your new boiler: combi boilers can be installed anywhere in your home as they don’t require additional tanks or cylinders. However, other types of boilers need to be installed in specific locations due to ventilation requirements. 

– Make sure you have adequate insulation: Insulating your pipes will help keep your home warm and reduce the risk of them freezing in winter. 

– Check for areas that might need extra ventilation: Some boilers require extra ventilation, so make sure there are no areas in your home that might need extra ventilation before installation begins.

Installing a new boiler is a quick and easy process that shouldn’t take more than a couple of days.
