Facts About Boiler Installation

If you have just purchased a new boiler, you will need to arrange for boiler installation. If you have purchased your boiler from a professional boiler specialist company, there is a good chance that your boiler installation will be included in the price of the boiler, but if you have purchased the boiler directly from the boiler manufacturer, you may have to arrange for an independent installation.

If you are finding an independent engineer to install your new boiler, make sure that they are properly accredited before they start work on your boiler. If you are having a Furnace installation Burnaby gas boiler installed, it is essential that the engineer is fully qualified to work with gas. Having your boiler installed by an unqualified engineer will not only mean that the boiler might not run as efficiently as it is designed to, but a badly installed boiler can also be very, very dangerous, especially if gas is involved. When you have found an installation expert, it is highly likely that they will want to visit your Furnace installation Burnaby house to assess the potential site of installation, so that they will be able to bring all the necessary equipment with them when they come back to fit your boiler.

The first thing which you will need to be considered when you are arranging boiler installation is what sort of boiler is being installed, because different types of boiler will have different limitations on where they can be sited. Whilst combi boilers are small enough to place in most homes, open vent systems will require enough space for two separate water tanks – one for cold water storage, and one where the heated water will be stored. The cold water storage tank is usually located in the loft of a property. An open vent boiler system should be located close to the tanks for maximum efficiency, whereas a combi boiler system is usually located near to the main sources of water which it will be heating. If you are replacing an old boiler, it is most cost effective to have the new one installed where the old one was removed from, as most of the correct water pipes will already be in place. If you are unsure on the best site to have your boiler installed, discuss your ideas with an installation engineer, and they will be able to advise you on the best possible places and any other limitations there may be.
