It seems homeowners across the UK are already thinking about winter despite the recent stifling temperatures with a record number of people looking to replace their boiler this summer.
According to Boiler Guide, enquiries for new gas boiler installations have risen by 44.5% over the past three months when compared to May-July 2018 suggesting homeowners are now more savvy to the potential savings of getting their house in order while demand for heating engineers is lower.
With temperatures reaching record highs across the UK last month, many would think a new boiler would be the last thing on a homeowner’s mind and this seasonal decline often sees heating engineers struggle for business. However, being prepared and making these repairs or installations during the summer can save hundreds of pounds for the exact same service due to lower demand.
David Holmes, Founder of Boiler Guide, said: “It’s great to see that more UK homeowners are not waiting until winter to get their boilers replaced – we are all well aware of the high demands on repair people during the colder snaps of winter and the potential implications of a broken boiler.
“In some areas of the UK you can save up to £500 by replacing your boiler in August as opposed to November so it’s worth speaking to a heating engineer in the summer if you’re after a bargain. Due to lower demand for heating engineer services in the summer it really is a ‘buyer’s market’ so make sure to shop around to get the best quote.”
