How much does boiler brand matter?
It’s a question that we get quite a lot and the main reason is because there is just so much choice out there for the homeowner but here’s what you need to know when it comes to boiler brand…
Does brand matter?
Everyone knows that there are many different types of boiler out there, as well as many boiler brands. Most homes make use of a combi boiler as they are great at delivering heat on demand so you so you can use it as and when you need it. If you live in a home that requires you to need hot water at multiple locations at once eg. during the manic morning rush, then you might have a system boiler in place.
You might be thinking…”That’s all well and good but what does that have to do with boiler brand?” The honest answer is not much, as most brands that make great combi boilers tend to make great system boilers and visa versa. The most important thing to look for in a boiler is reliability, and it is this trait that many boiler brands live and die by.
A good example of this is Vaillant. Vaillant has built a reputation as being a trusted and reliable brand – and for good reason. Their boilers also offer very good eco-friendly options that not only help the environment but also help you save money. That’s not to say that other brands are not as good, but any boiler that can give you a long lifespan is always better.
Does price matter?
Of course it does. Price matters with almost everything that we buy. Having said that, you might be surprised to learn that the average cost between what might be called a cheap boiler to that of one that is on the more expensive side of the spectrum is usually only around £100-200. The one thing you should take away from this is to think of your boiler as an investment.
After all, your boiler is what keeps you and your family warm during those cold winter months, so adjusting your budget and making sure you can get the best for your home can certainly pay off in the long run and more importantly, when it really matters.
