The thought of purchasing a new boiler can be a scary process. They don’t come cheap, so you don’t want to replace it until you really have to. However, leaving it too late could result in costly breakdowns. So, how do you know when is the right time for a new boiler? Tailored Plumbing is here to help. Our plumbers have put together this helpful article, so you can spot the signs it’s time for a new boiler.
Gas bills making a bigger dent than usual? This is a clear sign that it’s time for a new boiler.
Over their lifetimes, boilers become less efficient, resulting in increased energy consumption and higher bills. If you’re noticing your gas bills creeping up (outside of normal price increases) you might want to upgrade to a newer, more efficient, model. This can even help you save in the long run!
Banging, whistling and gurgling sounds are all signs of an unhappy boiler. These noises could suggest you have air trapped in your system, faulty pumps, or a dodgy thermostat. Whatever the case, don’t just ignore them! Putting off a replacement could lead to further damage down the line. Get in touch with our expert team at Tailored Plumbing, and we can offer our advice.
The age of your boiler is one of the most important factors to consider. As with anything, boilers have an expected lifespan, a well-maintained boiler can last around 15 years. But, with time, it will become less efficient and more prone to breakdowns. If your boiler is getting on a bit, it is probably worth considering a replacement.
If you are finding yourself calling the plumbers every other week, this is a sure sign that you need to consider a boiler replacement. Spending money on fixes that only cause temporary solutions is a risky game to play. Frequent repairs are a definite sign of underlying issues, so get in touch with a plumber to talk about boiler replacement.
