Should I Replace Or Repair My Faulty Boiler?
Before contemplating boiler repair, you can check out our useful videos to see if we can help! Here are some questions you need to ask yourself that will help you understand the difference between boiler replacement and repair much better:
1. How Old is Your Boiler?
Before having your boiler repaired maybe carry out a bit of investigation to find out if parts are still readily available. After about 10 years, boiler manufacturers tend to discontinue spares and accessories on some makes of boilers.
Also, you need to take into account if your boiler is over ten years old, it may not be as efficient as a new boiler in providing hot water or central heating and, due to its age, could be costing you far more money in the future to run or keep repairing.
2. How Energy Efficient Is Your Boiler Compared To Having A New One?
If your boiler is over 7 years old, the chances are that it might not be a condensing boiler.
High efficiency condensing boilers were installed from approx 2004 when it became a building regulation that new, high-efficiency boilers had to be installed in properties. If you are not sure what energy rating your boiler is, you can try and contact the manufacturers and they may be able to tell you what your existing boiler’s energy rating is.
With energy prices going up, it’s becoming more important to cut bills wherever possible. The cost of running your boiler needs to be taken into consideration if you are going to repair your existing boiler and not choose Boiler Replacement.
3. How Much Does a Boiler Repair Cost?
Some boiler or central heating system repairs can run into many hundreds of pounds, but compared to the cost of a new boiler, it can seem a lot less. You need to ask yourself if you repair and further costs arise is it going to be more financially viable to replace. Our website also has information about boiler service & boiler repair!
