If you have moved home or planning to move soon then getting to know the boiler system in your new home should be a priority. Your boiler system might not be part of your home report so don’t neglect this important aspect when moving or else you could end up with a series of repair bills and problems with your heating or hot water. 

New Boiler System

First thing to consider is to identify what type of boiler you have inherited when moving in to your new home: Combi, System or Conventional.

  • Identify the make and model – find out what brand it is to see if it is reliable.
  • How old is your boiler? – 10-15 years is the average lifetime for a boiler – check out long your boiler has been in place in your new home.
  • Boiler quality – check for signs of wear and tear.
  • Service History – Has your boiler been serviced in the last 12 months or so, if not then you should contact McLellan Plumbing and Heating and we will happily organise a boiler service.
  • Is your newly inherited boiler working properly? – Ask the seller for a demonstration of how the boiler works so there are no unpleasant surprises or frantic evenings trying to decipher the instructions.
