Replacing a commercial boiler is not something you are likely to need to do very often, so where do you start? There are many things to consider so it is certainly worth investing a little more time and effort into researching any potential boilers you are considering and the companies that install them. This will ensure that you not only end up with a commercial boiler that meets all your requirements but also with an installation company who know what they are doing and have all the appropriate accreditation.
No matter what type of property you are looking to have a commercial boiler fitted in, whether a hospital, school or any type of industry, many of the questions that you need to ask will be the same.
Set A Budget
Not every business looking for a commercial boiler has lots of money to spend, schools and hospitals are of course prime examples of this, so set a budget for a new boiler. Make sure it is a realistic amount and whilst it may be necessary to go over this amount, do not allow yourself to spend more than is realistically affordable. Make sure you get several quotes so that you can compare prices and don’t forget to check that they are like for like otherwise your comparisons will not be equal.
Are there things that are included in the cost that you can simply manage without? Find out what type of payment methods the companies you are looking at use. Do they require a deposit, payment in full or can they offer finance options on your new boiler. These are all things you may want to consider. When comparing quotes for boilers make sure you look at the length of the guarantees, this could give you a good indication of the quality of the boiler you are looking at; a confident manufacturer will offer a good extended warranty which goes a long way to offering peace of mind.
What Kind Of Boiler Do You Need?
One of the biggest decisions you will need to make is whether you wish to stick with the same sort of heating system that you currently have or whether it is time to make a change to something else that might suit your requirements better. Things to consider will be of course the size of the building the boiler is for, how many rooms there are and even the use of those rooms. You may only need a single boiler but if you need a full industrial heating system then obviously, you are looking at something that will be a lot more complex. If you don’t know what would work best for you then ask the experts, it’s their job to know what will work best and suggest the right solution for you
How To Pick The Right Company
Picking the right company to do the work for you can be tricky. Ask around, personal recommendations and word of mouth are a great place to start. Searching boiler installation London, or your location will give you a good list as a starting point. Check if a company are approved trade partners for a brand of boiler.
If a company is an approved trade partner then their engineers will have completed rigorous in house training for that manufacturer, this ensures that they are most qualified when to it comes to this brand. This in turn gives peace of mind that they know exactly what they are doing. It is also worth asking about timescales and making sure that the price you are quoted will not change if the job takes a little longer than anticipated, things which could cause disruption to your workplace.
