Installing a new boiler features in top ten list of popular home improvements

Heating oil users will know that despite their efforts to keep their oil-fired boilers in tip top condition, there may come a time when they need to turn to heating oil suppliers to discuss replacing their boiler with a new model.

In fact recent research has revealed that replacing a boiler or central heating took third place in a ranking of the top ten home improvements, with 31% of homeowners arguing that they had carried this out within the last three years.

A further 15% were planning to do this in the coming three years. The survey also revealed that households are becoming increasingly eco-conscious, with 8% of consumers planning to install solar panels in the next three years and 8% already having done so.

Here’s is a brief look at the other home improvements included in the top ten, and how homeowners can make the most of their renovations.


Taking top place on the list, 42% of consumer argued that they had given their kitchen an overhaul over the last three years, with more than a third (34%) also planning to do so in the coming three years.
