A new boiler installation is one of the most expensive household expenses that homeowners or landlords can have.
New boilers are an essential purchase in order to keep a house warm and provide hot water, and unfortunately the requirement for a new boiler occur between every five and ten years, often with very little notice.
Due to the time pressures of arranging an installation, especially following an emergency breakdown, in order to minimise the time without a working boiler, often extensive research regarding the installation company options as well as boiler products do not take place.
In such a situation a homeowner or landlord can choose a supplier in haste, leaving them open to the risks of the quality of the work being done to a lower standard, or the paperwork to register the boiler not being completed appropriately for example.
Ideally landlords or homeowners require a reputable boiler installation company who can be trusted to do a good job and install trustworthy, reliable products, however finding such a supplier can be tricky.
One of the main benefits of installing a new, modern boiler these days is the energy efficiency of the latest boiler units, that will help reduce the energy used as well as improving the energy efficiency of the property overall.
Energy efficiency is certainly of interest to landlords who legally have to arrange for Energy Performance Certificates, or EPCs for their rental properties, achieving a grade E or above in order to legally lease the property.
People are also being more conscious of the impact their behaviour and choices have on the environment making an eco-friendly choice much more appealing for consumers.
In addition to ensuring competitive pricing and installing a modern energy efficient boiler, a homeowner or landlord would also wish to ensure a smooth transaction where the installation team arrive promptly, are professional, undertake a high level of workmanship, tidy up after themselves, file the paperwork appropriately registering warranties for example, and ensuring that the installation is in a full working order before leaving the property.
The boiler installation market can be overwhelming due to the competition of the number of companies available, therefore we will aim to simplify this and discuss the best companies to install a new boiler within the large city of Birmingham, located within the West Midlands.
National Boiler Installations
Of course all of the national boiler installation companies serve Birmingham including British Gas, SSE, Worcester Bosch and Homeserve.
Each of these companies may offer slightly different services such as chemical flushes, smart controls or financing options with differing terms, however they will often set very similar pricing in order to remain competitive in this crowded market.
There is some security of using a major national company as often installers are well trained and strict processes are put in place to ensure consistent work, however such companies tend to have large overheads including national advertising and large call centres and therefore the prices offered are usually found to be slightly inflated compared with either local companies or online boiler installation companies.
