13 August 2009

Homeowners are being urged to research the different types of boilers on offer before proceeding to invest in one.

"Homeowners must always bear in mind the needs of their home when looking into purchasing a new boiler," said David Holmes, founder of the website.

"A simple bit of research is valuable in ensuring that a homeowner gets the maximum benefit of a central heating system from their house."
