Boiler Replacement


Sometimes new is better, especially when it comes to boiler repair costs. Replacing your boiler with a new one can save you time and money in the future on costly repairs. It’s a tricky decision to make between repairing or replacing. Do you pay for a boiler repair and run the risk of another element potentially breaking in a few weeks, or do you replace the whole unit?

 

Should I get a boiler replacement?

Knowing when it’s time for a replacement boiler is tricky! Here are a few signs that it might be time for something new:

  • Is your boiler leaking? If the leak is coming from within the boiler, an internal part might have failed and need replacing. If your boiler is no longer in warranty, it may be more financially smart to buy a replacement with a 10-year warranty, depending on the repair price.
  • Do you regularly have low pressure? Low pressure is usually a sign of a small leak so check all radiators and pipework first. If that’s the case, it’s a relatively minor problem to fix. If a leak isn’t located, the boiler may not be performing to the best of its ability. Our engineers will determine whether a replacement boiler might be the better option.
  • Is your boiler over ten years old? Most boilers have a 10 – 15 years lifespan, assuming they’ve been regularly serviced.
  • Are your energy bills much higher without increased use? When boilers get older, they become less efficient, and it costs more to run them. If you have had no significant changes to your lifestyle, but your bills are increasing, it might be time to change.

 

How to choose a replacement boiler.

1. What size boiler do you need?

You get what you pay for when it comes to a new boiler, but bigger isn’t always better. If you get too big a boiler, you’ll end up paying for a lot more energy than you can use. If your boiler is too small, it might not be able to cope, and you might end up with a cold shower when someone is flushing the toilet.

2. Which type of boiler works for your home?
