Home survey is an integral part of any boiler replacement or boiler installation project. As a homeowner, you should know what to expect in a home survey so that you could be better prepared for the same. Just remember not to call some random companies in Glasgow or Kilbride for the home survey. Before calling any company for home survey, you must first identify the best service providers in your area. Among them, you should pick a few top-rated companies based on their experience level and their industry reputation. When it comes to good companies for the installation of boilers Glasgow offers many options. You do not have to therefore worry about running short of options.
Assuming that you have done your homework in selecting the best companies in the industry, when they come for the home survey, these are the few things you need to be prepared about. First you should find out how soon your installation company could visit for the home survey. Agree on a time that is convenient to you and make sure that you are available during the survey. If you have any questions it would be easy to ask them during the survey visit when you are also present during the survey.
The boiler installation location should be made accessible to the survey engineers. If you need to clear the area, it is best to have it cleared before they arrive so that they do not have to wait for you to clear after they arrive. All these preparations would make the survey process easier and smoother.
During the survey, your survey engineers would be able to assess which type of boiler would be ideal for you whether they should recommend the best combi boilers Glasgow has to offer or they should recommend a conventional boiler. It would be best to go by the recommendations offered by your boiler installation companies. Just to be on the safer side, you could get a second opinion and that is one of the reasons why you should get the boiler installation home survey done by more than one company. This will help you compare the quotes and also cross check whether the recommendations match.
It is also possible that when multiple companies come for the home survey, each one might give you a different recommendation and you have the freedom to go with the recommendation of any company. You may want to listen to the reasons given by each company for the recommendations they make.
Besides deciding which type of boiler would be ideal for your home and your needs, your survey engineer would also assess the complexities involved removing the old boiler in case of a boiler replacement, the additional electrical and pipeline work that need to be done to install the new boiler and all the other tasks around the installation process. It is only based on the time and material involved, your boiler installation company would be able to give you an accurate quote for the job.
