There are countless reasons for a boiler replacement, such as breakdowns, wanting to switch to a more efficient model, or even upgrading to smart technology.

Common Boiler Problems – Is it time for a new boiler?

With a whole host of factors to take into account when looking into replacing your boiler, it can be a minefield when looking for good honest advice & a knowledgeable answer to your questions.

A boiler breaking down is never convenient, so getting it fixed or replaced should be a high priority. Many will find their boiler to have quirks, that slowly but surely develop into intermittent faults, and eventually stop working completely. Other signs for boiler replacement can include:

• System leaks
• Excessive heating bills
• Unusual noises or smells
• No longer available replacement parts
• Cost of repairs increasing due to age
• Intermittent heating and hot water

The Benefits of Replacing Your Boiler

The main benefit of replacing your boiler is that you and your family will be able to safely keep warm for years to come, but there are many others.

Energy Efficiency. Have you noticed that in recent times that your bill has been slowly creeping up? It is a fact, older boilers can cost a lot more to run, and keep maintained. With the average life expectancy of boilers now being between 10 and 15 years, you could find yourself saving lots over time.

Get Smart. Everything is getting smart, our TVs, phones, and now our boilers. Smart boilers become smart when they are paired with a smart thermostat. These types of replacement boilers not only give you more control over your heating but can also help to save you money, all with the touch of a button.

More Space. Replacing an older boiler can free up more space in your house, with many people choosing to relocate their boiler location during a replacement. Alternatively, as households grow, so do their heating needs.

Bring down repair costs. If your boiler is costing you more to repair than it would be to replace, it is time to bite the bullet and invest in a replacement boiler – giving you peace of mind.

Choosing a Replacement Boiler

Heating engineers will be able to offer you their extensive knowledge of boilers and heating systems, to ensure you get the most cost-effective and most suitable system for your needs.  For most customers we will recommend one of the following:

Combi Boilers: Combi boilers are the perfect choice for smaller properties, consisting of a  water heater and central heating boiler in one unit. Another important factor to consider with a Combi boiler is its high efficiency and space-saving design.

System Boilers: System boilers are often recommended for houses with more than one bathroom, as they allow a constant supply of hot water to numerous taps at the same time. System boilers are more expensive than combi boilers.

Regular Boilers: If you have a large house with more than two bathrooms and require a lot of hot water, a regular boiler system could be suggested to you.
