Your step-by-step guide to gas boiler installation

Gas Boiler installation in Havertown, Philadelphia and West Grove

It’s a very important piece of equipment that ensures your comfort and wellbeing with a steady supply of warmth and heat through the year, and especially the cold season. Your gas boiler. Now, like all home assets and appliances, your old gas boiler too would need to be replaced with a newer version at some point in time. By the way, we’re Boyle Energy – a company with several decades of experience in gas boiler installations, gas water heater service and even gas boilers for home heating. If you’re planning to invest in a new gas boiler, here’s a guide from our experts that will clue you into the basics of gas boiler installation.

 

Step 1: Remove the old boiler

The first step is to get the old boiler out of the way for the new and more advanced replacement to find its rightful place. Dismantling an existing boiler unit and disengaging all connected appliances is a task that’s best left to qualified professionals. Speak to a boiler company you trust and their certified, licensed and insured technicians will begin by shutting off the gas and then breaking the gas feed. Make sure they isolate the boiler from your water supply so that you can continue to access water in the interim period. This will be followed by removal of the gas pipes and finally, the unmounting of the existing boiler. 

Step 2: Redo the pipework

Older generation boilers featured a piping system  that channeled the air back to the boiler instead of venting it externally. Newer, more efficient boilers don’t follow this traditional method anymore; instead they have a separate piping arrangement for the air to get discharged through air vents. If you have an outdated piping system, make sure to upgrade it in accordance with the requirements of your new boiler unit. 

Step 3: Install the new unit

It’s advisable to install the new unit on the same day that you have your old boiler removed. Make sure the technicians install the new boiler unit in the same spot as the old one and then connect it to water outlets, radiators and the cold water mains through the necessary pipes and pumps. Lastly, the type of boiler you’ve installed will determine whether or not you need to fit additional hot and cold water storage tanks.

Step 4: Ensure easy accessibility

If you want to avoid making trips to the boiler room every time you want to change your home’s central heating, ensure that the new boiler unit is wired directly to your home’s electrical controls.

Step 5: Test your new unit

It’s advisable to check if your new boiler performs efficiently without a glitch when the technicians are right around you. Start up the gas boiler and check everything from the flow of hot water to the delivery of heat to see if anything’s out of place. If your new unit delivers steady heat without any drops or breaks, it’s all good.

 

Your boiler plays a crucial role in keeping you and family comforted with consistent heating and a continuous, on-demand supply of warm or hot water.
