% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A responsible homeowner should be aware when to maintain, repare, or replace critical household equipment including the oil boiler. Boilers last anywhere between 10 to 15 years. If yours is already nearing or way past that range, you should consider getting a new oil boiler in Hampshire.

Here are nine questions you should ask before doing so.

What is the current status of my boiler? A boiler is an important investment. Before buying a new one, you have to be certain about its condition first. From age to repair history to visibility of signs of damage, you have to know various details first.

How has my heating needs changed? Over the years, there’ll certainly be changes in your heating demand. It could be brought about by home additions or more household members. In this case, you’d need to choose among the wide range of oil boilers Hampshire the most suitable for your current and long-term heating needs.

Is there a local supplier near me? Having a local supplier is advantageous in terms of price and availability. If you have urgent boiler replacement needs, a proximal business will be able to deliver prompt services to you.

Is your supplier licensed, accredited, and insured? If a boiler is not properly installed, it could cause several issues. The same is true if the unit you’re using is sub-par or is not suitable for your heating needs. This is why it’s important to tap a supplier with the right credentials.

How long will the installation take and how much it will be? When installing oil boilers Hampshire, clients are entitled to knowing the projected timeline and the pricing. To get these important details, you should request a quote from your prospective supplier.

Do you also replace the heating controls? Your new boiler should be compatible with the existing heating controls in your home. If you’re replacing your old unit, make sure to ask your supplier if they’re also replacing your old controls.

Will the system be power-flushed first? Power flushing is done to remove any debris within your heating system. This way, the newly installed boiler will function at its peak efficiency.

Is there a warranty? Apart from the gas-safe certification that needs to be issued, having a warranty is another safety net that you should secure. Your new boiler should be guaranteed against repairs and any installation errors. The warranty should also cover parts and labour.

Do you offer preventive maintenance and servicing? While a boiler can last up to 15 years, it can only achieve its maximum lifespan if it’s maintained properly and regularly. It will be more cost-effective on your part if your supplier is also the one who will do the servicing.
