Central heating Power flush

One of the best ways to provide heating in a home is through the use of a boiler. However, one mistake that many people make when thinking of ordering one is not thinking things through when doing so. Most people think that all the different boilers out there work on the same premise, and that all of them have more or less the same characteristics.

This is not a good way to go about it

There are several compelling reasons why this is a bad way to go about buying yourself a boiler. For one, the fact that there are so many different types and sizes out there means that unless you pay attention to a few details, you are likely to end up with one that will not suit you. The commonest problem you are likely to face is finding that the boiler is too expensive in the long term. In a world where the cost of energy is always increasing, this is something that you should be actively trying to avoid. The best way to do this in the context of boilers is by making sure that you pick one that is meant to perfectly fit your needs.

The 3 Combi boiler

One of the boiler types you should consider getting is the 3 Combi boiler. In a nutshell, a combi or combination boiler provide heating as well as hot water directly from the boiler. This is different from regular or system boilers, which heat the home by providing heat directly to the home’s heating system, and produce hot water as a separate function.

What are the advantages of the combi boiler?

One of the major advantages of a combi boiler is the fact that it can provide hot water on tap, rather than making you wait for it to get heated as is the case with other types of boilers. In addition to that, the fact that it consumes very little space makes it ideal for when you need to use up as little of it as possible. This is especially so when the roof space is particularly small or even nonexistent. In the same breath, the combi boilers can also be used in instances where you do have some roof space, but have other plans for it rather than putting your boiler up there.

How much does it cost?

Getting this type of boiler is therefore a good idea, but one problem that many people have is figuring out what the boiler replacement cost is. Of course, this depends on a host of factors including the type of vendor you choose as well as the heating requirements you have. Online purchase will cost you around £200 to £300 for the really basic models, and this represents one of the cheapest ways to get them. If you opt to buy the boiler from a heating company, you can expect to pay between £600 up to around £1,500 depending on variables such as the size of the boiler you want to get.

For a more accurate account of how much it will cost including installation, you should call your energy company or boiler retailer for more information and a more thorough calculation.
