Choosing a boiler fitter

When it comes to keeping your home warm during the chilly months, having a reliable boiler is crucial, however, even the best boiler on the market won't perform optimally if it's not installed correctly. This is where choosing the right boiler installer becomes pivotal. We understand that navigating the world of boiler installations can be overwhelming, which is why we’ve broken down just a few of the areas to keep an eye out for when choosing the best boiler fitter.

1) Gas Safe certified boiler installers

Safety should be your top priority when it comes to any gas-related work in your home. A Gas Safe certification is a legal requirement for any individual or company working with gas appliances in the United Kingdom, it ensures that the installer is qualified and competent to handle gas installations safely.

At Padly we take safety seriously, and every one of our boiler fitters is Gas Safe certified and fully qualified to install your new boiler to the highest safety standards. This commitment to safety means that when you choose Padly, you can have peace of mind knowing that your boiler installation will be handled by professionals who prioritise safety above all else.

A boiler is a long-term investment in your home, and choosing the right brand is essential. The best boiler installers often have strong connections with reputable boiler manufacturers. Padly has established partnerships with some of the UK's favourite boiler brands, offering you access to a wide range of high-quality and energy-efficient boilers.

3) Clear communication

There’s nothing worse that working with a company that doesn’t keep you in the loop. Effective communication is a cornerstone of a successful boiler installation project. From your initial quote to the final handover of your newly installed boiler, it’s important to choose a company that values clear and transparent communication.

Padly’s creation was based on the desire to create a boiler installation company that keeps the customer informed and up to date at every touchpoint. Whether it’s helping you with your initial boiler research, guiding you through the boiler buying process, including choosing the best fuel type and model, or explaining in detail how the installation timeline runs, communication is the key to our success.

4) Boiler finance options

Boiler installations can be a significant financial investment, and not everyone has the cash on hand to cover the entire cost upfront. This is where boiler finance options come into play. A reputable boiler installer should offer flexible finance solutions to make upgrading your heating system more affordable.

We understand that not everyone can pay for a boiler installation in one lump sum, which is why we offer pay monthly boiler finance options to suit your budget. This flexibility allows you to spread the cost over manageable monthly payments, making it easier for you to enjoy the benefits of a new boiler without straining your finances.
