Boiler Installations

Boilers that are over ten years old are not just unreliable but also inefficient. In fact in most cases older Boilers only convert 60 % of the fuel that they use into heat which not only has a huge impact on our environment but also your home heating bills.

We specialise in the installation of condensing boilers from Vaillant and Worcester, using the latest technology available. Modern condensing boilers improve efficiency to over 90% which could save you a minimum of 30% per year on your home heating bills, which represents a big saving over the lifetime of your boiler.

New Boiler Installations/ Replacements

A boiler is the heart of your home’s central heating system. Getting a new gas boiler replacement installation can therefore be a complex and admittedly expensive process. Here at Cozy, we understand how difficult this process can be and we’re here to help you make the best decision to suit your home and needs. Here’s a few factors that we believe you should prioritise when choosing your new boiler:

“How much is a new boiler to install?”

“How much is a new boiler to install?” This is likely to be one of the first questions on your mind if you’re considering getting a boiler installed into your home. New boiler prices can indeed be pretty costly, but the right boiler could deliver effective and efficient heating and hot water to your home and ultimately make your household a more comfortable place to live – an investment we believe to be well worth making.

New boiler prices can vary greatly, the expense for one household may be cheaper than that of another. For example, the boiler replacement cost for their current combi with another of the same type could be less than an individual looking to switch from a regular boiler to a new combi boiler. Costs could also be dependent on factors such as the type of boiler chosen, its size and the complexity of the installation process.

For instance, if additional parts or labour (such as scaffolding or pipe-rewiring) is required, additional fees may be incurred. Here at Cozy, we aim to offer first-class installations of top boiler brands, such as Vaillant and Worcester Bosch, at competitive prices. We aim to ensure that you get the best value for your money in relation to your boiler, the installation and the service you receive.  

Things to consider before buying a boiler​

There are a number of factors that you should take into consideration before taking the plunge. These include:

This is one of the main factors to take into consideration when purchasing a new boiler system. A kW output dictates a boiler’s ability to cope with your household’s heating and hot-water needs. The required output tends to be reliant on the number of bathrooms and radiators that are present within your home, so if your household tends to have high central heating demands, you may need a boiler with a higher kW output. It is also important to understand that over sizing you’re boiler has a reverse affect and becomes inefficient in you’re particular property if incorrect.  Here at Cozy we our expert advice can calculate you’re exact needs.

A reliable boiler could save you both stress and money in the long run as boiler breakdowns can be both highly inconvenient and expensive to fix. Investing in a reliable boiler could prevent you from being left in the cold and could also save you money in repair costs, so bear that in mind during your decision-making process. Here at Cozy we always aim to supply the most reliable boilers which offer the longest warranties.  Depending on Manufacturer and Model we can normally offer between 7-10 years warranties which gives you piece of mind.

The location of your boiler could impact the spacing and appearance of your household, you should therefore think about a suitable place for it to be fitted. It often saves homeowners time and money to place their new boiler in the same location as their old one, as this typically enables a quick and easy installation. However, if you believe that your boiler could be better suited elsewhere, there are a number of locations that you could choose from.
An energy-efficient boiler could allow you to make savings on your energy bills by reducing your energy wastage**! All of the boilers that we stock at Cozy are A-rated for efficiency and could be coupled with a state of the art thermostat (such as Nest or Hive) to potentially provide you with the ultimate energy-efficient, central heating system. Boilers are built with key feature such as user-friendly controls to enhance efficiency by allowing you to set your heating to your preference and avoid energy wastage. According to the Energy savings Trust, replacing a G-rated boiler in a semi-detached property with an A-rated boiler could save you up to £210 on your annual energy bill!
Another key factor to consider is the length of time your boiler installation could take. A boiler installation could take between 1 to 5 days depending on the work required. System changes often take longer than like for like swaps, for instance, a change from a regular boiler to a new combi boiler is likely to take longer than a straight combi to combi swap. It is in your best interest to consider the time it could take for your new boiler to be installed, as this could give you an idea of how long you could be without your central heating, as well as providing you with a timeframe should you have to take time off work. Our friendly and reliable Gas Safe engineers aim to complete all installations quickly and thoroughly and are committed to getting your heating and hot-water up and running as soon as possible.

What types of boilers are there?

If you’re looking for a boiler replacement, there are several different types of systems that we can install into your home. These include:
  • Compact in size, no need for storage tanks so a good choice for smaller properties or loft conversions
  • No Loft space needed
  • Less pipework required which typically makes the installation cheaper – unless undergoing a system swap
  • Provides constant flow of hot water direct from the mains supply
  • Typically suitable for homes with more than one bathroom
  • Fed direct from the mains meaning no need for a header tank and so no loft space required
  • A pressurised system so overall the heating circuits are cleaner and which case more efficient
  • Typically used in conjunction with a hot water cylinder to provide large amounts of stored water
  • Typically suitable for large households with two or more bathrooms
  • Generally smaller in size, ideal to fit into standard size kitchen cupboards
  • Fed from an expansion tank in the loft

When's the right time to get a new boiler?

On average, boilers last between 10 and 15 years. So, if your boiler is coming up to this age, it may be time for you to consider getting a new one installed. Besides their age, there are a number of other reasons for replacing your old boiler system.
