Choosing a second hand combination boiler
Here at X-Met Metals, we buy a range of used combination boilers, including boiler parts. And we can replace parts and refurbish these so that they are in full working order. We also work with a range of heating and plumbing professionals, who buy our second hand boilers and install these for a range of clients. So you know you can count on us, and our high quality services. But what should you be looking for from your combination boiler? Well, there are several things, including:
- The size of the boiler- you dont want to choose a boiler that is too small for your home, as this will not be able to effectively heat your property. And you dont want a boiler built for bigger properties, as this can be uneconomical to run. Make sure you find out which size boiler you need, so that you can narrow down your search.
- The age of the boiler- while a second hand boiler wont be brand new, you shouldn’t choose one that is more than ten years old. This is because the older boilers are less energy efficient, and will cost you more to run in the long run.
Advantages of buying a second hand boiler
So, why should you consider buying a second hand boiler and not a brand new one? Well, there are a number of reasons, including:
- Cost- the cost of a new boiler can be a big barrier for many households. But with a second hand boiler, you know you will get a product that is ready to go, and in full working order, but for a fraction of the cost.
- Environment- leaving old boilers that still work to rot in landfill is a waste of a product. And it can be harmful for the environment, with toxins and chemical leaking out. Buying a second hand boiler will help reduce the amount of waste, and it also means that you are not contributing to the mining of new, finite, natural resources, that are used in the creation of a new boiler.
