What we Require from You

Thanks for taking the time to get an online quote from Boilerhut.  Please note, the estimate you got on the previous page is not the final quote.

For us to confirm the quotation, and move on to installation, we require some photos.  All you need is an iPhone or any other smartphone or a digital camera.

If you can provide us with these photos within the next couple of hours, we will contact you and offer you an install date, which in many cases can be within 24-48 hours.

Below you can see best examples of photos that will help us firm up the quote.  So, which photos do we need?

Converting from Regular/Open Vent/Back Boiler to Combi

NOTE: Listed below are the areas of risk that need to be considered when converting to a combi:

  • Pipework buried in concrete
  • Very old radiators
  • Very old radiator valves/TRVs
  • Single pipe
  • Twin entry

We wish to make you aware that we are not responsible for the rest of your system, and any additional work to resolve these issues will be chargeable.
