When Should You Replace Your Boiler?

If we’re being honest, replacing your boiler is never at the top of your most wanted on your shopping list, now is it? However, with the rising costs in energy prices, running your old, inefficient boiler could be costing you more in the long run than just opting to buy a new one. But most importantly, how do you know that your boiler needs replacing?
One of the first things to consider is the age of your boiler.

1. Life Span

The average lifespan of a good quality boiler is around 15 years. However, if you have not had regular annual servicing carried out in the lifespan of your boiler, it could be dramatically reduced.
The second thing you must consider is how is your boiler performing?…

2. Time to Heat

When the boiler is on you should be getting heat very quickly without having to wait very long. If you’re having to wait a long time for your house to feel warm or for your hot water to come through, it could be time to replace your boiler.

3. Increased Energy Bills

We are all aware that energy prices have increased but if you find that your supplier is regularly increasing your payments, then your supplier may not be the problem it could simply be that your boiler is using more energy.

The third thing to consider is if there are any warning signs that your boiler needs to be replaced…

4. Unpleasant Smells

If your boiler has been started to give off a smell, then the problem could be an indication that it may be emitting carbon monoxide. Although carbon monoxide does not emit any smell, if your boiler is not burning gas properly it could be giving off a faint smell. If this is the case then it time to switch your boiler off along with your gas supply, ventilate the house and call a professional immediately.
