The age old question is always, “should I buy this new or could I buy it second hand?” This question seems to apply to more areas of our lives than we realise. And this is question is appearing again when it comes to purchasing a steam boiler that is perfect for your needs. There is a place and a time where it is better to buy something brand new, and when it is better to buy it second hand. It can always begin with asking yourself what are your needs. Once you know what your needs are, you can make the best decision from there.
New Steam Boilers
The obvious factor here is that a new steam boiler will be more expensive than a second hand one. But this way you know where it has been, nowhere. You know its history and you know what condition you will be getting it in. This will also most likely come with a warranty, and that might bring some reassurance with your purchase. A new steam boiler is great when you have certain needs and requirements, so you are able to get one more easily than you would if you had to search for a specific second hand model.
Second Hand Steam Boilers
Although there is a stigma, there is actually nothing wrong with purchasing a second hand boiler. Of course there are draw backs to this, but that is very circumstantial. One thing is that a second hand boiler is going to be much cheaper than a brand new one, but it may not last for as long because it has already been working for a few years. But with some TLC and reconditioning, you are able to get the most from your boiler while still saving money. If a boiler has been well looked after, or has hardly been used, or is still relatively new, it is definitely worth considering buying it second hand.
It is always worth considering purchasing something second hand. Whatever you choice is, Steam Generation Africa has a variety of steam boilers available for you to choose from.
