Boiler Installations Newcastle

Buying a new boiler tends to be a decision that most people need to make in a hurry. Usually, because your boiler has broken down, it’s mid winter and you need to get your hot water and the central heating back fast. 
So, here are a few things to help make that decision thinking about a new boiler installation in the North East, to help make that decision easier for you to get your new boiler. After all, you don’t want to be freezing in your home just because you failed to make the important decision of having a boiler installed. 

Benefits of boiler installation in the North East

When you opt for a new boiler installation, you get to experience several benefits, such as:
Cleaner heat
You get to experience clean heat as boilers do not produce any allergens, dirt, or dust particles. Minimal time and energy consumption are involved in radiating water in a cyclic process.       
Silent operation 
 You can enjoy a quiet boiler functioning because any operational noise only takes place inside the boiler, keeping other components free of noise. 
Greater comfort
You can enjoy greater comfort from more even and direct heat infusion into rooms. This isn’t the case with other heating systems like vents or ducts which force heat into a space unevenly. In this way, boilers create a more comfortable indoor temperature. 
More savings
While maintenance or servicing of your current boiler seems like the easier option, a new boiler installation in Newcastle can actually save you plenty of money in the long run. If your current system requires frequent repairs, you may end up spending more just to maintain it than you would on a new boiler. New boilers even come with advanced features that can work more efficiently and help you save on repair and maintenance costs. Installing a new boiler also helps to raise the value of your property if you’re looking to sell it.  
Lower footprint
New boilers offer higher efficiency and have a lower footprint than old ones. Apart from this, they also require less space in the home. You will also be meeting regulatory requirements when you choose to have a new, more efficient boiler installed. This can also help to reduce your fuel bills.   
Advanced features
New models come with advanced technology features which increases the control you have over their functioning. Multiple intensity levels can be operated based on demand. This saves money and helps to increase boiler lifespan.
Warranty coverage
New boilers come with manufacturer warranty so you can have peace of mind with regard to repairs and maintenance for the warranty period.  
With CP12 Energy, you can leave the task of boiler installation with registered engineers and get the right advice on your new boiler installation. We also have flexible payment plans to make it easier for you to cover the cost of your boiler installation in Newcastle.   

How much does a boiler installation cost?

Your boiler type will largely affect your boiler installation cost. This is why it is important to review each boiler type and compare its price as well as its performance. So here are a couple of estimated prices to be aware of, but these may change depending on factors regarding your property.

Combi (Combination) Boiler
If you rent or own a small apartment, chances are, you’re working with a combi boiler. As the name suggest, combination boilers provide hot water and heat on the fly. There is no waiting for hot air or hot water.
Combi boilers are smaller than other types. Therefore, they make perfect sense for smaller properties. The water is not stored like other boiler types, so you don’t have to run the hot water before actually receiving it. Despite the increased efficiency, combi boilers are usually cheaper than other models and typically cost between £770 and £1540. This is just the cost of the boiler and does not include any labour costs.
System Boilers
If you have more than one bathroom, you need at least a system boiler. These boilers come with a hot water tank, but all other components are built into the boiler. Fewer materials mean shorter installation times and thus, decrease your labour costs.
Because system boilers are typically used in average-sized homes, their cost is a bit more than combination boilers. System boiler prices range from £1100 to £1850.
Conventional Boiler
If you own a home, chances are, you have a conventional boiler. These boilers are ideal for larger homes or homes that use a lot of hot water at the same time. Additionally, if you have an old radiator system or are replacing a regular boiler, you’ll have to install the same type moving forward. Because standard boilers can handle more pressure, they are on the expensive side ranging from £2300 to £5700.

Choosing a new boiler for your home

You’re going to need a new boiler installed if:
  • You’ve used your boiler for 10-15 years already 
  • Your boiler has broken down, and repairs seem to be more expensive than getting a new one 
  • Your current boiler isn’t able to meet your needs
  • You require a boiler with higher energy efficiency 
  • You’re hoping to raise the value of your property by installing a new boiler 
Here’s what you should consider before a new boiler installation North East:
Size and output requirement
If you have higher central heating demands, you’ll need a boiler with higher kW output. Boiler size and output will depend on property dimensions, the number of bathrooms, and radiators on the property.         
Energy efficiency
Choosing a boiler with higher energy efficiency can save you money on energy bills in the long run. 
Be sure to get a reliable boiler as otherwise, you’ll end up spending a massive amount on repairs.  
Since a boiler will impact the aesthetics of the property, it’s crucial to keep in mind the location of its placement so that it fits. 
Installation duration 
Depending on the type of boiler, duration of boiler installation can range between 1-5 days, or even more if you plan to switch from 1 boiler type to another. 
Boiler type 
There are 3 types of boilers: combi, system, and conventional boilers. Each has its benefits and drawbacks, which you should look up before making a decision. It’s crucial that you consult our experts before making a decision as they can assess your needs and recommend the right type for your property.
