What is involved during a boiler installation?

Even though boilers usually have a lifespan of more than 10 years, it's possible that you've already reached the point when you need to replace your boiler. Getting a boiler installed r is a procedure that involves some preparation, and this is true regardless of whether your older boiler is no longer functional or if you'd like to have a newer upgraded one.  

Even though our heating engineers are there to assist you every step of the way, it is still beneficial for you to have an idea of what to anticipate throughout the installation process and how to get ready for it.

Boiler Installation Procedure

Arranging an installation 

To schedule an installation with Atom Gas Ltd, all you need to do is answer a few questions about your home, and from among the options that we think are most suited for you based on your responses, you may choose the boiler that you want to have installed. 

After that, you'll be able to choose a date for the installation and figure out how you'll be paying for it using flexible payment options.  Our heating engineers may also arrive a few days before the installation to asses and inspect the area which the new boiler is going to be placed in.

In addition, one to two business days before the installation, we will phone you to confirm both your order and the installer who will be working on your boiler. 

Removing your old boiler

The removal of your old boiler is the first step that has to be taken before a heating professional can begin installing your new boiler. To make this process easier for your heating engineer you can start by cleaning the area surrounding your boiler and making sure it is simple for them to reach. 

If your boiler is put in the attic, there should be a set of steps and a safe path leading up to it, and the space where it is located should have enough lighting. Before installing the new boiler, the heating expert may need to remove the existing pipes and radiators if the boiler installation is going to be more involved than usual or if the boiler is going to be moved.

New boiler installation

After the old boiler and any old pipes have been removed, the heating expert will begin the installation of your new boiler and its plumbing. This will be done after the new boiler has been delivered. This stage of the procedure may be completed in a very short amount of time, particularly if you are purchasing a boiler that is identical to the one that is being replaced. The amount of work that must be done and the level of difficulty of the task both play a role.

A tour of the new boiler 

After the heating engineer has finished installing your new boiler and ensuring that it has been correctly installed, he or she will next give you a tour of the product's features. This includes how to make a schedule determining when the boiler will be on or off, how to utilise the controls, and what features the boiler offers. 

While the heating expert is there, it is important to make note of the features of your new boiler and to ask questions about those features. This will assist you to utilise your new heating system successfully and efficiently, and it will also provide you with an excellent opportunity to ask questions of a knowledgeable professional.
