Servicing your boiler regularly prevents issues occurring. For landlords an annual boiler service is a legal requirement.
Popular Boiler Brands
The choice of boilers may seem daunting and there are many types of boilers and brands to choose from.
First of all – what type of boiler do you need? The choices are Combi boilers, regular (heat only) boilers and system boilers. While combi boilers are often favoured because they produce instant hot water, system boilers and heat only boilers work with a hot water cylinder to heat on demand.
Here we profile some of the most popular brands of boilers bought by UK customers to help you narrow down your choice.
Ideal Heating Boilers have been one of the UK’s leading heating specialists for over a century. They offer a range of highly efficiency boilers for both domestic and commercial heating. Efficient for both new or replacement installations and provided with a long-term manufacturer’s guarantee, every model is easily installed and is engineered for reliability. An Ideal boiler must be fitted and serviced annually by a Gas Safe registered installer.
