Reasons for installing a new boiler
There are many different reasons for upgrading to a new boiler. While we will always try to repair your existing boiler, there comes a time where any boiler becomes beyond economical repair. If this is the case we can explain to you the pros and cons of a new boiler installation compared to repairing the existing one. That way you can make a well informed decision. We will never use pushy sales techniques. We strongly believe that as well as being very irritating, this is a sign of a bad business.
If your current boiler was installed before April 2005, it is probably a non condensing boiler. It is now mandatory, when replacing a gas boiler in the uk to install a high efficiency condensing boiler. As well as being better for the environment, upgrading to a condensing boiler could save you money on your gas bill. Condensing boilers are highly efficient boilers, typically greater than 90%. They do this by condensing water vapour in the exhaust gases and so recovering its latent heat which would otherwise have been wasted. The Energy Saving Trust state that depending on the efficiency of your old boiler, you could save up to £350 a year. This is by installing a new A rated condensing boiler, programmer, room thermostat and thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs). For more information on the benefits of upgrading, you can visit the Energy Saving Trust website.
Renovation – the perfect time for a new boiler installation
Another good time to consider upgrading to a new boiler is during renovation. If the boiler is nearing the end of its life, this would be a convenient time to install a new boiler. This could potentially save more upheaval a couple of years down the line when your project is finished. If you would like us to assess your current boiler and system, please get in touch to arrange an appointment.
Whatever the reason, if you are considering a new boiler installation in Leeds, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. See the Contact page for details.

Boiler manufacturers are now offering long parts and labour warranties ranging from 2 to 12 years. The conditions of the warranty state that the boiler must be installed correctly to manufacturers instructions. One of these conditions with all manufacturers is that the boiler must be installed to a clean system. The most effective way to clean a heating system is by power flushing. This prevents debris and sludge from the old system contaminating the new boiler. It also helps to improve the efficiency of the system by removing partial blockages from the pipes and radiators. For this reason all new boiler quotes, when installed to an old system will include a power flush. To find out more about the benefits of power flushing please click here.
Protecting your new boiler in Leeds
Also included will be the installation of a magnetic filter. This protects the system going forward by collecting any sludge that accumulates. It is quick and easy to clean out annually as part of your annual service.

Boiler servicing and repairs
All boiler manufacturers that provide a boiler warranty do so on the condition of an annual service. You will need to have this carried out each year by a Gas Safe registered engineer. We will happily carry this out for you at a competitive rate. We will remind customers that have had a boiler installed by us when this is almost due.
Even on older boilers that are out of warranty, it is good practice to have an annual service. Having your appliance checked and cleaned will help to keep it working safely and efficiently for as long as possible. It is also a chance to find any possible signs that repair may be needed for general wear and tear. This could prevent more serious and expensive problems from occurring. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information or to book your service.
