WOne question that we are frequently asked here at Chelmsford Gas Services is whether it’s really worth forking out the money to have a boiler replaced during a warmer time of year when, let’s face it, many of us don’t exactly feel very inclined to do so. It’s during the spring and summer, after all, that you’ll probably be much more tempted to spend your time enjoying the great outdoors.
But the other angle, of course, is that you won’t want your current boiler to suddenly break down at the height of the winter, when you’ll genuinely need it.
So, here are some factors that we suggest you bear in mind if you are presently hesitating over getting in touch with us about a boiler installation in Chelmsford.
Will it even be easy to get hold of an engineer if you wait?
For the aforementioned reasons, the summer isn’t exactly a ‘fashionable’ time to arrange for a boiler to be installed. However, this is precisely why you should seriously consider contacting a company like ours during a season when the sun is increasingly out.
The unfortunate reality is that the winter is a notoriously busy time for engineers, and if your boiler breaks down at this time of year and you’re left feeling chilly in your own home, you’ll hardly want to end up struggling to find a reputable professional.
It’s good to have the luxury of time
Regardless of whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter when you come to read this, if your boiler still functions adequately but you’re unsure how many months longer it can last, it’s well worth making use of the time you now have to scrutinise and compare your options.
Here at Chelmsford Gas Services, for instance, we fit both Viessmann and Intergas boilers for homeowners like you. Then, there’s the question of whether you should have a combination boiler, conventional heat-only boiler or system boiler installed at your property.
It’s infinitely better to have the time to be able to talk to your family in advance about the type and brand of boiler that will best suit your needs, as well as which company you are most comfortable with approaching about a boiler installation in Chelmsford. A boiler is a serious investment, so you won’t want to have to be rushed into a potentially poor decision.
You could be taking a lot less risk if you simply act now
The installation of a new boiler is definitely one of those operations where you need to be careful about exactly what company you choose to do it, as well as when you do it, and what brand or type of boiler you request. In short, there can be a lot of risk attached to it already.
That’s why, if you can possibly avoid it, you won’t want to heighten such risk even further by continuing to use your old boiler into the winter months when you suspect that it may be on the verge of breaking down or suffering other major problems.
The winter will always be an especially challenging season for boilers, simply because it is the time of year when they are required to work hardest. Nonetheless, even during the summer, colder days can happen, and boilers can falter. Ultimately, then, sooner rather than later – regardless of the season – might be the best mantra to live by as far as boiler installation in Chelmsford is concerned.
The great news is that when you contact the Chelmsford Gas Services team, we will be able to advise you on everything you need to know in relation to the fitting of a new boiler, drawing upon the considerable knowhow and experience of our Gas Safe registered engineers.
