DS Plumbing & Heating are specialist gas boiler installation engineers around the Swindon area
We rely on our gas boilers in our homes for hot water and central heating. Over years of almost continuous use, the boiler performance will degrade, and repair costs will outweigh the cost of a new one.
Although it’s not something you should take lightly, having a replacement boiler installed can sometimes be much more cost effective, especially when you consider that many modern boilers come with long guarantees, sometimes with a 10 years warranty.
We are fully qualified, Gas Safe Register plumbers to give you complete peace of mind when we are working on installing your new boiler in Swindon.
When it comes to new gas boiler installations, it is often a decision that you will need to make very quickly. In a family home, for example, you might only need to replace the boiler in an emergency when the old one has broken down.
When a member of our team visits your home to give you a quote for boiler installation, they will take the time to look at the heating system in your home and will talk to you about what you need from the new boiler. Then they will be able to provide you with recommendations and a quote for the work required.
There are a few things that you should think about and discuss with our team. For example, does your home have a pumped power shower? These may not be compatible with some combi boilers so our team will need to recommend a water heating unit that is. Tell us if you are planning to make any changes to the plumbing layout in your home. Maybe you are thinking of adding an en-suite bathroom or an extension. These may change what you need your boiler to do, but our team will be able to take this into consideration when planning the boiler installation in your home.
Think about the location of your new gas boiler. When having a new boiler installed, you may have the opportunity to move it to a more discreet position. Our boiler installation engineers can advise on this, ensuring there is enough ventilation, and can quote on the required pipework as necessary.
If you are not sure exactly what you want, or need, our qualified and professional plumbing engineers are the best people to ask about the various options available to you. They will be able to answer all of your questions, telling you about any additional optional features that may be available to you.
When examining your current heating system our team of boiler installers will also be able to let you know if it needs any maintenance work. It is a good idea to take advantage of our team being on-site to clean out the system or even run a powerflush through it to remove any debris or sludge that will be affecting its performance.
Our team will also be able to provide you with guidance relating to the new energy-saving measures that are now required. You will have a choice of features such as weather-compensating thermostats, smart heating controls, flue gas heat recovery and load-compensating temperature controls. At least one of these is required by law and a professional boiler installer will be able to explain the advantages and disadvantages of each one, helping you to decide which is going to be the best option for your home.
The final stage of the boiler installation process is the safety checks once the boiler is in place. These will be noted for your records and for the warranty on the work.
Installing a replacement gas boiler can be an excellent way to reduce your heating costs, but it is important that you work with a reputable company who will be there for you every step of the way. A good boiler installation company will always be on hand to give you any support you may need during the process and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have. A good company will always install the boiler to a high quality standard and will fit it correctly in order to ensure that you get the most effective use of your new boiler.
