Comparing what types of boilers there are is quite simple these days with search engines, however the choices can be quite overwhelming. With the different levels of requirement depending on the property, budget and heating system it can sometimes be a simple case of elimination. For most of us though the choice isn’t that easy.

With the FREE boiler scheme available under the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme, many of you will be lucky enough to have the cost of a new boiler and installation covered.

For those of you whose boiler has broken down, needs renewing to conform to Safety standards or for those of you who are building a new property and installing a brand new Heating system the cost of the boiler will be a major expense and one which should be researched thoroughly.
