Does my boiler need replacing?
Does my boiler need replacing? Well, if you maintain your boiler you can expect a good 15 years’ worth of service out of your appliance. An annual boiler service will help to ensure that your boiler remains as efficient and safe as possible for your central heating system. But remember, the older your boiler, the harder it will be working to heat your home.
Nowadays, modern heating boilers are significantly more efficient than older boilers. In addition, technical improvements in modern boilers, such as temperature control devices, ensure you are able to heat your home more precisely and efficiently. A boiler in need of replacement is unlikely to be energy efficient or cost-effective, but more importantly, it could be a danger to you and your family. Replacing your old heating boiler with a modern condensing boiler will almost certainly reduce your fuel bill but you will need to consider any future demands on your heating system.
For example, will your family extend, will your hot water requirements expand, and will you add more bathrooms. Maybe you may add renewable solutions in the future. Consider these factors now and discuss them with your heating engineer. So, when to replace your boiler? Could you put it off for replacing your boiler for another year?
Here are 10 tell-tale signs that you should consider a new boiler installation sooner rather than later.
