What are the best gas boiler types for me?
This question about suitable boiler types has been asked by literally millions of UK home owners for many years now.
It’s the way the question is answered that has changed.
What do you mean?
Well, as always seems to be the case these days digital technology and the internet are changing the way boilers are purchased.
The traditional way of finding a heating engineer to replace your boiler was to look in Yellow Pages or the local newspaper.
Nowadays, most of us ‘Google’ our way through our daily lives and this is quickly changing the way we engage our boiler installers.
How is this happening?
The market for central boilers in the UK is ‘saturated’, meaning nearly everyone has got one.
In fact a lot of people are probably on their second or even their third one.
This means that pricing for boiler replacements can now be done on the web using a growing number of digital pricing tools or apps.
Does this mean the price for my boiler replacement will be wrong?
No!! You might think so, but you can get an accurate boiler replacement estimate in just a few minutes.
Without a heating engineer in sight!!!
How can I do that?
- Take a few minutes to answer some simple questions
- Upload a few pictures of your old boiler
- We’ll give you an estimate to replace your old boiler
- Our installer will then call round to confirm things
- You can get your new boiler installed in just 24 hours
Just in case you’re not ready to get your boiler replacement cost just yet…
