Scottish Borders gas boilers including combi and condensing cost less with free quotes
Gas boilers Scottish Borders are more popular now than ever before because of their reliability, clean energy, cost efficiency and the advanced technology that keeps them running smoothly. Gas boilers must always be installed by Gas Safe registered engineers who should also do annual safety checks. From our extensive database of qualified professionals we can provide you with free quotes from reputable companies that offer services for Scottish Borders gas boiler installation, replacement, maintenance, parts and repair.
Ongoing technological developments with gas boilers continue to improve their efficiency which makes them a good choice for heating systems. Another benefit of gas boilers is that maintenance is easy as long as regular safety checks are done by Gas Safe registered professionals. Electric bills typically decrease once a gas boiler is installed because Scottish Borders gas boilers use very little electricity. The heat generated from a gas boiler comes from burning gas which flows from underground gas pipes instead of from electrically heated coils. Although gas boilers may cost a little more to purchase and install, they make up for it in the long run by lasting longer and generating lower heating bills.
There are many variables which may impact the cost of replacing an old boiler with a new gas version. The particular brand and size of gas boiler can make a big difference in the price. Additional costs may be involved if the old boiler has to be removed, the heating system flushed out and the installation area cleaned. Another consideration is whether the new gas boiler will be installed at the same location as the previous boiler or if it will be installed at a different location. Taking advantage of our free quote service is the best way to get competitive prices and pick the best qualified Scottish Borders company for your specific job.

It is crucial that annual maintenance checks are done on Scottish Borders gas fired boilers. Although gas is an inexpensive and efficient way to provide heating, it is highly combustible, emits carbon dioxide and can be dangerous if the equipment is not properly maintained. A yearly check should be conducted by a Gas Safe registered engineer experienced with Scottish Borders gas boiler installations. The engineer will check the function of controls and components, clean all vital parts and remove any scale buildup. The annual check will help keep the boiler functioning safely, guarantee maximum energy efficiency, prevent breakdowns, expose any dangerous carbon monoxide issues and save money in the long run.
In between regular maintenance checks, gas boilers may need servicing if flames appear yellow in colour or irregular in shape. Finding stains or smoke marks around the boiler is another red flag as well as a temperature gauge that exceeds 80 degrees Celsius. Smelling gas fumes could indicate a potential disaster. In such a situation, the gas should be turned off at the gas meter and a Gas Safe registered professional called. Other red flags include loud whining or screeching noises coming from the fan, rapidly falling pressure, poor hot water and a pilot light that goes out repeatedly.
All gas boilers Scottish Borders on rental property must have a safety check done by a Gas Safe registered engineer before tenants can move in. This has been a legal requirement in the UK since 1998. Landlords must have an up-to-date gas safety certificate prior to renting out a property, and the certificate must be renewed every year. New homes must also have current gas safe certificates prior to being sold. Our network of dependable gas boiler companies includes the right service personnel to handle any gas boiler needs from a new installation to an annual safety check.
Although you may know a friend or family member who has a particular model gas boiler in their home that they are happy with, this doesn’t mean to say that the exact same model will be the most suitable option in your Scottish Borders home. This is why it is essential that you have a proper assessment performed of the size of your home and how many people live there, as it will help the installer determine which make and model of gas boiler will be the most practical option for you and your family.
As with most other types of boilers, there are a few disadvantages associated with gas units, with one of the main ones being that it is quite costly to install a boiler - especially if there is not already a gas connection and the appropriate piping available in your home.
Another concern that many homeowners have with regards to gas appliances is the overall safety of them. If in the unlikely circumstance of a gas leak occurring close to or in your home, it could pose serious health and safety risks for your family.
While natural gas boilers are some of the most popular across the region for several reasons, but they aren’t available everywhere. Remember that natural gas, when supplied by a company or municipality, travels through underground lines much like water. Those living in more rural areas may not have access to constant natural gas, and this means that a gas boiler may be out of the question. However, in cases like these, most homeowners in rural areas can use LPG, or liquified petroleum gas, as an alternative to natural gas. They can both provide the same amount of hot water and comfort, though LPG may be slightly costlier.
When purchasing a boiler, it’s important for you to understand the energy sources you have available to you at your home or office. Then, you should purchase a boiler system designed to work with that energy source. Fortunately, when it comes to gas boilers, it’s possible to use either natural gas or LPG depending on what’s available; either one can provide heat. Remember, though, that LPG is delivered at a much higher pressure than natural gas, so should you choose to move from natural gas to LPG – or vice versa – it’s important to contact a professional for your installations and hookups where required.

As boilers go, gas boilers are among the most energy efficient. This is largely due to the fact that most of the newer boilers are designed to recycle waste heat back into the water system, in order to preheat incoming cold water.
Gas boilers burn natural gas and this heat is transferred to a water system. This water can be circulated through pipes in order to heat a house, or used to heat hot water for bathing and/or cooking.
Gas boilers may not be the best choice for a home with multiple floors and multiple bathrooms. While they work well for smaller homes, they will not be able to heat enough water to handle the needs of a larger home.
Yes, although you may have to install new gas lines if your Scottish Borders home does not already contain a hookup. Alternately, you could also have a propane tank placed outside your residence.
While it is technically possible to do so, this is absolutely not recommended - unless you happen to be a certified Gas Safe engineer or installer. You could risk serious injury or damage to your Scottish Borders home if the unit is incorrectly installed.
If natural gas is being delivered to your home but your boiler is still using LPG, which can be more expensive based on delivery costs and tank fees, it’s possible to make the switch to natural gas, instead. You’ll need to contact a local boiler installation company for information and quotes regarding conversions. While these boilers can accept and use either gas, they must be adjusted and properly set-up to ensure the right pressures.
Owing to the fact that all Scottish Borders homes are different sizes and that all families have different water heating requirements, the cost of a boiler will depend on the model and brand that is being installed. Our network of installers will be able to provide you with more accurate pricing when confirming which model unit will be most suitable for your family’s needs.
