    How Do You Buy a Potterton Boiler?

    Potterton will not quote or sell to you directly but instead refer you to an engineer who has installed an Potterton boiler within the last six months. This is because every home is unique and an engineer will need to assess your requirements before recommending a particular type.

    Once this assessment is complete, the engineer will then provide you with a quote that will state which boiler you need and how much the installation will cost.
