When enquiring about a new gas boiler or boiler installations it is always best to get some expert knowledge from a boiler engineer as usually they normally have all the answers and need to do a home survey, but if you wish to find out yourself it's always best to take notice of three important factors when selecting your new boiler.
First is the amount of available space you have at your disposal as this can possibly be biggest factor in what boiler you get for your boiler installations. If your property is particularly small or has limited storage space it might make it difficult or impossible to have a separate tank. In instances where space is limited a combi boiler might be your best option.
Secondly it is important to consider that you may want to keep he same system that is currently heating your home! It is normally in your best interest to keep the same system as costs can quickly build up, possibly going over budget if you choose to change the boiler installations system entirely. Replacing the gas boiler system is usually the best option for older homes but new builds will have the ideal setup in place. To keep your system in tip-top shape you should book an annual gas boiler service as some extended guarantees require you to do so and boiler servicing is required by landlords because of the risks of carbon monoxide the silent killer.
Remember that a different system will also require different amounts of space and might be not suitable.
Lastly you should look into how much hot water you actually use in your household this can be determined by taking a quick stroll around your home. Take note of how many showers and baths you may have and how often multiple outlets are using hot water. If you come to the conclusion that you require a larger supply of hot water a system boiler or conventional gas boiler maybe the answer you are looking for.

Having the right type of fuel is like having the right tool for the job. It is essential in keeping your home toasty and energy efficient throughout the year. But each fuel type has it's own unique properties and uses for different types of homes. To take you through the confusing world of fuel types we have made a handy breakdown of each fuel type allowing you to make a more informed professional decision in how you choose to heat your home on your own terms.
Being the most common type of fuel available and used for local plumbing heating services & heating engineers in Durham, gas is one of the simplest options of fuel choice for those who homes are connected to the gas grid. This fuel type is on average 3 to 4 times cheaper that electricity per kWh, so when your heating your home or hot water with a gas boiler you are actually saving money and keeping those energy bills down!
An additional benefit of gas is that it is the cleanest fossil fuel! Natural gas produces less than half of the CO2 emissions that is produced by oil and a third in comparison to coal! Also all new gas boilers installed by heating services (plumbing and heating Ltd Companies) need to meet at least 92% of ErP Efficiency ratings, as most modern combi boiler models are A-rated & energy efficient and low maintenance.
The only drawback with using gas and combi boilers is the fact you must be directly connected to the gas grid. You do have the option of connecting your home to the gas grid but it can be quite costly. If your home is not connect to the gas grid it would be beneficial to consider a different fuel type.
The humble electric boiler heats your home central heating system and hot water by using a heating element which then pumps the heated H2O around your home. This type of new boiler are on average more efficient and reliable but it does not mean that this type of boiler fuel is the most eco-friendly as electricity can be generated from renewable energy solutions (solar, hydroelectric, etc.).
As previously mentioned electricity can heat your central heating with hardly any loss of heat compared to gas boiler and low maintenance, but this type of boiler is a great option for those homes and domiciles in County Durham & North East and local areas that are on he smaller size all thanks to it's compact size. Electric boilers are also more likely to be cheaper to install and are a great option for homes that are not connect to the UK gas grid!
Immediately the major disadvantage to this kind of boiler is that, yes it runs on electricity and areas that are prone to frequent power cuts and outages. Also this can seriously hike up your bill as gas costs far less in comparison to electricity.
Finally if you have a particularly large home this type of fuel is not going to heat your home appropriately.
Unlike gas and electricity, oil is not available on demand to local homeowner`s for central heating system boiler`s and hot water. This will require you to monitor the amount of fuel you have and ordering more when you need it. Storage of your tank can also be a factor as most tanks are stored underground but if you require or want your storage tank above ground it will need a solid, level and non combustible base to sit upon which can take up a fair amount of space.
Similar to Oil, liquefied petroleum gas is a fantastic option for central heating and your hot water if your home is completely off grid (gas and electricity) this type of fuel is considerably cheaper and a perfect reliable replacement and not a bad choice when it comes to maintenance and services. While being cheaper it is also a 'cleaner' fuel source as it produces between 15 - 20% less carbon when used. Another benefit of this type of fuel is that you are given a far wider choice of boilers (Worcester Bosch, Ideal & Baxi) in comparison to the the other option.
The cost of running this type of fuel for central heating and hot water is higher per kWh for the homeowner when put up against gas, oil, etc. Similar to oil you will need to monitor the levels of your fuel tank as you would not to be in the unfortunate situation of being left without fuel before you can get your next delivery! Finally you will need to procure a storage tank to hold all of your fuel, you can either buy or rent a tank from your supplier and store it in your garden, so take note as this will incur additional costs.
