3 Tips for Choosing Which Boiler’s Best for Your Property

If you’re looking for a new boiler, it’s really important to consider which boiler’s best for your property. To ensure your home’s as comfortable and efficient as possible, it should be your top priority.

Here are 3 tips for choosing a boiler that’s best for you and your property.

1. Choosing your boiler type

Start deciding which boiler to choose by working out what type you need.

Lots of modern properties have a combi boiler. This is due to the fact that they’re really efficient and nice and compact. Because they only heat water on demand, you won’t end up paying for any hot water that you don’t actually use. If you’re considering this type of boiler then read our guide to the best combi boiler.

However, if you have a larger home, a standard or system boiler might suit you better. These boiler types heat water in advance, and are a great choice if you need to supply multiple showers at the same time.

2. Which? Boiler endorsed brands

Find out what homeowners like you think about their new boilers to help you get a reliable one. Which? – the popular reviews site – is a brilliant place to go for feedback about different boiler manufacturers.

According to Which?, these are the UK’s top 5 boiler brands:

Brand Reliability Customer Score Engineer

Viessmann 5 5 5 83%
Vaillant 4 5 5 80%
Ideal 4 3 4 69%
Intergas 4 4 4 68%

Which? has also given its ‘Best Buy’ award to models manufactured by Worcester Bosch, Viessmann, Vaillant and Grant. It claims that these boilers are more reliable and less likely to break down than other models.

So, it’s a good idea to do some research on different boiler brands to find out which ones have the best reviews. But remember, this doesn’t mean that you should buy any boiler that’s made by a reliable manufacturer.
