Boiler Repair vs Boiler Replacement

Is my boiler in need of repair?

Getting your boiler repaired is a quick and easy way to get your home back up and running. We offer emergency call-outs at a time that suits you, so you can have your boiler repaired in no time. A repair is usually the best option if your boiler has never broken down before.  A small issue can be easily and cheaply rectified. If your boiler is only a couple of years old, it could still be under warranty and the repair will be covered by the manufacturer. However, if your boiler is older and repeatedly breaking down this can be a huge inconvenience, frustrating and very costly.

How to know when to get my boiler replaced?

A boiler replacement is an expensive last resort but if your boiler is old, unreliable or breaking down more often than not, it is a good time to get it replaced.  Spare parts may no longer be produced by the manufacturer resulting in what stock is left being sold at a premium.  The initial outlay for a new boiler is expensive but this will be offset by its energy-saving capabilities and the manufacturer's warranty. If your boiler is over ten years old and starting to fail, you would benefit considerably from a boiler replacement as technology has moved on a great deal. Modern boilers are more efficient than ones manufactured as recently as 10 years ago for several reasons. Their main advantage is that they are condensing boilers.
