Boiler Central Order Process
Years ago, people would fully expect to get in touch with a boiler installation company and request someone to come round to your home to look at your current heating situation. If you were lucky you’d get a good deal on a brand new boiler at the right price. If you were unlucky you would get an exaggerated price and even extra added costs along the way.
No hidden costs
With Boiler Central there are no hidden costs. They have realised that there are only certain factors that affect the cost of installing a boiler. This is all taken into consideration and calculated online with their boiler installation survey.
The boiler installation survey
A minimum of 10 questions is all it takes to get a price for a brand new boiler depending on your situation. All the questions will have multiple choice answers. The questions you will be asked are as follows:
- What kind of fuel does your boiler use?
- What type of boiler do you have?
- Do you want your new boiler in a different place?
- If yes – Where is your current boiler?
- If you want to move your boiler – Where do you want your new boiler?
- Which of these best describes your home?
- How many bedrooms do you have?
- How many bathrooms do you have?
- Do you have any separate showers?
- Where does your flue come out of?
- Is the flue 30cm+ away from a window or door?
- Is the flue under any structure or roof?
Once you have answered the multiple-choice questions you will have to put the first part of your postcode in e.g. WF1, and then select “get my quote”
