According to research carried out by GoCompare & Henry Pryor (the BBC’s favourite property expert), installing a new boiler can increase your property’s value by approximately £9,000. Given that the average cost for a new boiler installation is around £2,000, this represents a substantial profit.
Henry Pryor states that the reasoning behind this is due to a new boiler improving the green credentials of a property: “improving the green credentials of a house usually pays”. Similarly, installing central heating and double glazing are also good investments to make on your home.
A new, modern boiler is an appealing prospect to home buyers for many reasons:
Save Money on Heating & Hot Water Bills
A new A-Rated condensing boiler is far more efficient than an older one. The new owner of your home can therefore benefit from big savings on their energy bills – as much as 30% per year. This adds up to a huge saving over the lifetime of the boiler and is a huge selling point for your home.
New Worcester Gas Boilers from Jimmy’s come with a 10 Year parts and labour guarantee, so the new home owner won’t have to worry about unexpected repair costs or breakdowns. When compared to moving into a home with an old boiler which is no longer under warranty, a new boiler is far less stressful and gives greater peace of mind.
Compatible With The Latest Technology
Unlike older boilers, new boilers can benefit from the latest technology including smart thermostats and heating apps such as Worcester Wave. Being able to control the heating from anywhere is an attractive feature for home buyers as they can turn the heating off if they’re running late to save money, or put the heating on in advance to ensure the home is warm when they return.
