Every homeowner looks around for the best boiler deals before settling on the one. A large appliance such as a boiler is an investment; saving money and getting the right boiler for your home are equally important factors. Thankfully, there are different ways you can save money when buying a boiler and getting one installed, such as finding the right size for your home and choosing the right installer.
We’ve put together a list of some of the things you need to consider before you make a final decision. Find the best new boiler deals by following these steps!
This is probably the most important point. Without the right installer, you’re compromising the safety of your installation and you can’t be confident that your boiler won’t run into any problems later down the line because of this. To ensure your boiler is installed the right way, you need to make sure you choose the right engineer. Your installer should be Gas Safe Registered and you should actively look into previous customer reviews and recommendations to prove that they can do a job to a high enough standard.
It’s good to know that all our BOXT engineers are Gas Safe registered and have the relevant qualifications to make their installations safe and secure. They’re also able to answer any questions and show you the ropes once your boiler is installed. Chat to us today using our live chat if you have any questions.
You may have a budget in mind for a new boiler, and if not, it’s something you need to work out sooner rather than later. Boilers are generally an expensive purchase, so you need to know which types you can afford before the search begins. A lot of companies will try and include additional purchases on top of the new boiler cost, so if they are not essential, you don’t have to agree to these.
With selected combi boilers, we offer a Google Nest Learning Thermostat and Google Home Mini as an option for upgrade. These great pieces of technology allow you to personalise your heating experience and to set schedules to best suit your lifestyle, without the additional cost. To make things easier and more affordable, you may also be entitled to a boiler grant to help with the purchase of a boiler.
In an effort to help any low-income households that are most at risk from fuel poverty and the rising cost of living, the UK government offers free boiler schemes and grants. Here’s everything you need to know about boiler grants.
You may have a current heating system that you’re settled with, or you may want to completely change the type of boiler and system that you have. Whatever your situation, you need to give it some thought before you decide. Combi boilers are the usual choice when opting for a replacement; it's good to know that the combi boilers of today are much more energy efficient and rated ‘A’ for efficiency. This means that they are over 92% efficient - saving you money in the long run.
Your engineer may recommend different combi boilers depending on your home set up. For example, if you have a 2-3 bedroom home with 1 or 2 showers, then you’ll probably need a different boiler to one you’d have in a much bigger home. As there are so many different makes and models of boiler which vary in performance. We’ve made things simpler by creating a ‘Find A Boiler’ tool. Simply answer some questions and we’ll recommend the best boiler deals for you and your home requirements.
You should always choose the right size boiler for your home to prevent energy wastage and inefficiency. If you find a company is trying to sell you a boiler that is too big for what you need, then you need to rethink and choose a different installer. We can advise you on the perfect size you need for your home and even deliver and install it for you the very next working day.

If a boiler installer is charging a much higher or lower price for their services than what you’d expect, always ask why. It’s not uncommon for installers to try and make as much money as possible out of a single installation to benefit themselves and no one else. Be cautious; you need to make sure you’re getting the right boiler for you as well as a registered engineer who can install your boiler for you safely and correctly.
At BOXT, we work differently. Have any questions about our service? Speak to us - we encourage you to ask questions about anything you’re unsure of. Peace of mind is essential with any larger purchase, and we’re here to make your experience a better one. What’s better still, is that we offer competitive, fixed, and fair prices on ALL boiler purchases and installations.
When your installation is complete, things shouldn’t just stop there. It’s important that you get your boiler serviced each year to identify any components that may need replacing and to check the overall running of your system. This is crucial to prolong the life of your boiler.
We pride ourselves on offering the best combi boiler deals around, so we offer some great warranties on the different types of boiler we install to:
