It is pretty normal to wonder how long it will take to complete a boiler installation if you are planning to replace the old boiler or install a new boiler in your home.
A new boiler installation takes up to 1 to 3 days on average, depending on the complexity of the installation. You must also take a few days extra into account due to quotes and other choices of installing a boiler, which happens prior to the installation. Contact a heating engineer or a local plumber near you who can install a boiler in your home to make sure that you choose a suitable boiler depending on the requirements of your home.
What is meant by the complexity of the boiler installation?
The amount of time required to install a boiler in your home is typically impacted by the complexity of the installation and the number of necessary labours. The boiler installation complexities and the number of works needed to be done will also affect the installation costs of your boiler.
1. Straight Boiler Swap:
A straight boiler swap means replacing your old boiler with a new boiler of the same type and in the exact location. Generally, this kind of boiler installation is the fastest as it does not require much labour costs because the change is minimal. These types of installations take no longer than a day.
2. Relocation of the Boiler:
Boiler installation will require a slightly more protracted amount of time if you choose to move the location of your boiler to a different space in your house. This is because the heating engineer or installer might have to make changes to the existing pipes or install new components to the new boiler location. This can result in adding an extra day to the installation time and will most likely affect the costs as well.
3. Boiler System Upgrade:
When it is time to replace an old boiler, some homeowners choose to install a type of boiler that is entirely different from the type of boiler they are replacing. For example, people may switch from a regular boiler to a combi boiler and vice versa. This switch is known as a boiler system upgrade. Combi boilers have gained quite a good reputation in the UK, and therefore, many homeowners switch to a combi boiler when they replace their old boiler.
This type of system upgrade can increase the boiler installation time to 3 days or more, depending on the complexity of the installation. Even though the system upgrade may seem like a lengthy and costly process, it is better to switch to a more efficient system. Choosing a more efficient and suitable boiler for your home will not only provide proper heating and hot water to your home, the efficiency of the system will help you to save money on energy bills.
