Combi Boiler - System Boiler - Heat-only Boiler Installation & Service
How do I choose the right boiler?
Your boiler is at the very heart of your heating system, providing you with both hot
water and heating. With many factors needing to be taken into consideration, and the range of boilers being so vast, finding the right
boiler for your home and family can be bewildering.
The size of your home, the number of people living in it, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the kW output
required to cope with your requirements, the type of boiler, the number of radiators. Is the budget tight or
do you wish to go for a premium range boiler? Is space an issue? Does the new boiler have to fit into an
existing heating system or are you installing a new one? Which will be best for you, a combi boiler, a system
boiler or a regular boiler? What about the warranty?
All these questions need to be considered so, if you live in Merseyside, you can save yourself all the stress with a FREE Gas
Survey. Call the heating experts at Rapid Response Boiler Repairs Ltd Liverpool on

The 3 Gas Boiler Types
|COMBI BOILER: Combi boiler also known as a Combination boiler - compact, will heat the water as you need it,
ideal for smaller households, homes and flats.
REGULAR BOILER: Regular boiler or Heat-only boiler - a heat-only system needs a
cold water feed tank in the loft which is fed from the mains before being pumped to a hot
water tank to be heated and stored ready for use, ideal for larger homes.
SYSTEM BOILER: System boiler - similar to a regular or heat-only
boiler, but has inbuilt components and doesn't require a cold water feed tank in the loft.
More information on each of the 3 gas boiler types and how they work within a gas central heating system can be
found in the heating section.
A boiler fitter from Rapid Response
Boiler Repairs Ltd will either supply and fit your
boiler, or install an existing boiler.
Why get a replacement boiler?
Number 1 in most minds
during an energy crisis is knowing that replacing an old
inefficient boiler with a modern energy efficient new
boiler can save up to 20% each year on your energy
bills. If your boiler is 10 years old the saving could
be as much as 35% on your annual gas bill.
New boilers are
far more efficient these days and carry long warranties, often paying for themselves due to energy bill savings.
For example, according to Energy Saving Trust, you can save up to 40% on your energy bill
by replacing your 10 to 15 year- old boiler with an A-rated combi boiler.
An A rated boiler with efficiency rating at 90% or higher is the most efficient on the UK
market. All A rated boilers have the Energy Saving Trust's seal of approval.
B rated boilers are 86-90% efficient and C rated boilers offer 82-86% efficiency.
By law, every new combi boiler, system boiler, or regular / conventional / heat-only boiler installed in the UK must be a condensing
A high efficiency, A rated gas-fired condensing boiler is one of the cleanest and most economical ways to heat your
home, lowering your monthly energy bills, carbon footprint and reducing environmental impact.
The UK is committed to reducing emissions to zero by 2050, and a gas boiler ban is thought to be a likely key part
of government strategy starting from as early as 2025.
Biomass boilers occupy a lot of space, and with prices of between £7,000 and £15,000 in the current market, a combi,
system or regular boiler is much less expensive to install, service and replace.

Landlords Gas Safety Inspection & CP12 in Merseyside
All landlords letting a residential property have a legal duty to ensure it's safe for their tenants.
Before they can rent out a property, landlords are legally required to have an annual gas safety inspection
by a Gas Safe™ Registered engineer, after which they are presented with a Gas Safety Certificate, or CP12, which is valid
for 12 months.
Landlords can find out about the legally required annual Gas Safety Check on the Gas Safe Register website
What is a Gas Safety Inspection?
Carried out by a Gas Safe™ Registered engineer, a gas safety check ensures gas appliances are safe to use.
Key points Gas Safe Registered engineers look at for a Gas Safety Check:
Adequate ventilation for the room the gas appliance is located in
The gas appliance is stable and secure
The flue is safe
The gas appliance is burning correctly
Shut off and safety devices are working
What is a Gas Safety Record?
Each year a Gas Safe™ Registered engineer must do an annual gas safety check on all gas appliances in the
property, the results of which will be recorded in your Landlord Gas Safety Record.
Once the Gas Safe registered engineer has carried out their gas safety check, landlords will receive a copy of
the Gas Safety Record as proof the check has been carried out. By law landlords need to provide the
current tenants with a copy of the Landlord Gas Safety Record within 28 days of the gas safety check. For new
tenants, it should be provided at the start of their tenancy.
An example of what a Landlord Gas Safety Record looks like can be found here:
Landlord Gas Safety Record example
A Gas Safety Record shows details of all the checks that were carried out. It can also be referred to as a CP12 Gas Safety certificate or a CP12.
According to the Gas Safe Register, you should find the following in your gas safety record:
A description and location of each
appliance or flue that was checked
The name, registration number and
signature of the engineer who made the checks
The date the checks were carried out
The address of the property where the
appliances or flues are installed
