Why Now is The Perfect Time for a Boiler Upgrade
The weather may be warming up, but now is the perfect time to get ahead of the annual rush, and consider a boiler upgrade to make sure your heating system is ready for when the cold comes back to bite.
The sunny months provide the ideal opportunity to upgrade or replace your commercial boiler or water cylinder and make sure it's ship-shape for the autumn/winter period, when any loss in heating or hot water can cause major disruption.
Engineers and installers tend to be less busy at this time of year, because fewer premises will be using their central heating. That means you're more likely to secure an appointment quickly to explore your options - and you'll have more time to get a new heating system installed. Once autumn returns later in the year, many businesses will be turning on their heating for the first time in months – only to find that there are problems with their boiler, so demand for engineer appointments will significantly rise.
Replacing a boiler can take up to two days to ensure that everything is sited appropriately and works properly. Two days can feel like a long time in winter with no hot water or heating, so avoid this by scheduling any work in over the warmer months.
If your boiler is older, it’s probably not as efficient as it could be, which means that you could be paying more than you need to for your energy when you turn it on in winter. Boiler efficiency has improved considerably in the last decade, and upgrading your heating system now could see you make huge savings. For example, replacing your boiler with a condensing model that has a gross energy efficiency level of 98% could significantly reduce your winter outgoings.
An older, non-condensing boiler simply wouldn’t be able to keep up with a condensing model because it has to raise its temperature to such a degree that water vapour doesn’t condense and start to corrode the heat exchanger.
