What to consider when replacing your Gas Boiler
Location Location Location
The location of your new gas boiler and model is likely to impact install time and costs, particularly if you have decided on a relocation. Below are some things to consider when deciding on your new gas boiler replacement.
Gas Boiler Brand/Model
The model and brand of gas boiler chosen will impact on your price. The higher the quality of the selected boiler the higher the costs associated with it, for this reason we have a selected range of gas boilers to suit every budget while minimising the difference in quality.
Do you need heating controls?
Correctly installed heating control will not only reduce your fuel bill but will also make for a easier controlled, better performing central heating system. Dependent on the level of heating control required the installation time and cost will be impacted although grants are available to offset this additional expense.
Do you need to upgrade your gas pipe?
Your new “A” rated condensing gas boiler may require a larger gas pipe dependent on the distance from the gas meter, current pipe size and the amount of gas appliances served by the current gas line.
In addition if you are planning on relocating the new gas boiler, provisions will have to be made for re-connection of the existing heating system piping to the newly installed gas boiler. Floors coverings may have to be temporarily removed to allow the routing of piping to serve the boiler in its new location.
Your new high efficient boiler will require a means of discharging its water vapour by product to a suitable drain or soak away.
Boiler flue location and route
The length total lenght of flue and Flue terminal location are two very important factors to be considered when choosing you boiler location. A boiler located internally with no direct access to an outside wall will require addtional flue lenghts and components and this will impact your expenditure.

How much space does the boiler require
Boilers come in all different sizes and with that their minimum space requirements vary greatly. It’s Important to note the minimum space requirement for service, repair and Installation.
Gas Boiler Efficiency
If you have gas fired central heating in your home, your gas boiler is the main component of your central heating system. It produces the heat energy we require for both warmth and hot water. On average your gas boiler will be responsible for around 60% of your homes carbon emissions and equally the single largest consumer of energy in our homes. It is because of this high energy usage; careful consideration must be given to boiler efficiency in order to reduce both your energy bills and carbon footprint. Modern condensing gas boilers are typically over 90% efficient and replacing your old fashioned central heating boiler with one could mean a saving of over 20% on your annual gas bill. In Ireland, there are many condensing boiler brands and models to choose between. But in term of efficiency levels there is very little difference between them. The most important factor when choosing the most efficient boiler for your home is the correct type and sizing.
Gas Boiler Reliability
When considering replacing your boiler, one of the most important things to consider is reliability. Just like cars there are many different makes and models to choose from, each with their own range and each offering very different levels of quality reliability warranty and pricing. No boiler can be considered 100% reliable but in the event that you are unlucky enough to experience a boiler fault, warranty back-up and support are also important factors to be taken into account. According to an independent survey by Which.co.uk the most reliable boiler brands are Worcester Bosch and Valliant.
