The question of boiler repair v new boiler is one of those questions that most homeowners will face at some point. When you have your boiler regularly maintained, it will last the longest possible time, but all boilers have a lifespan and eventually, it will need to be replaced. But how do you know when you have reached the point where you need a new boiler in place of a boiler repair?
Years of repeated use can wear out the components within a boiler. Boilers that are 10 years or more in age may start to experience an increase in problems that get more serious each time. If you are finding that repairs are more often than just regular servicing, it may be time to consider a replacement.
Similarly, if your gas engineer tells you that it is difficult to get parts for the boiler because it is an older model, this might also be a time to consider replacement. Boiler manufacturers usually only stop producing parts when boilers are of a certain age and this often means they are past their best – they may also be quite inefficient in terms of the energy they use as well so could be costing more money.
If you notice that your energy bills are increasing without using anything more in your home, then this might be a sign that your boiler (or another appliance) isn’t working as well as it did. Older boilers aren’t very efficient so will start costing you a lot more money. This change could be another sign that you need to replace your boiler.
