Who Makes the Best Boilers? The Crucial Role of Installation
When it comes to quoting for boiler installations, we often encounter a common question from customers: “Who makes the best boilers?” It’s commendable that customers take the time to research and read reviews about different boiler brands, educating themselves about their reputations. However, there’s an often overlooked factor that plays a more critical role than the boiler itself: the installation. A budget-friendly boiler that has been installed correctly will undoubtedly outperform and outlast a high-end boiler that has been improperly installed and inadequately set up. This realization leads us to emphasize the importance of delving deep into researching potential installers, sometimes even more than the boiler itself.
Finding the Right Company: Finding a trustworthy business can be a daunting task, but thanks to the advent of online review platforms and social media, the process has become more accessible than ever before. Reputable businesses usually have multiple ways of gathering and showcasing customer reviews. Platforms like Google Reviews, Checkatrade, and Checked and Vetted are excellent resources to explore other customers’ opinions and experiences with potential installers. Moreover, many businesses now utilize social media, where you can view pictures and videos of their work, allowing you to assess the quality of their installations. Most companies also maintain a website where they consolidate their work portfolio and display customer reviews.
The Boiler Selection: Once you have done your research on the installers and decide to reach out to them, you may discover that they do not install the specific type of boiler you were hoping for. In such cases, it is advisable to consider installing their preferred boiler instead of trying to convince them to install the one you desire. If the installer is well-trained and experienced in a particular type of boiler, they are more likely to set it up properly, ensuring optimal efficiency and better maintenance during servicing, thus prolonging the boiler’s lifespan. Another option is to search for accredited installers in your area who specialize in the type of boiler you want. However, it is still crucial to conduct thorough research on these businesses to ensure they meet all the necessary criteria. Remember, a larger volume of installations does not always equate to better quality.
