When is it time to replace your boiler?

How long does a boiler last?

The lifespan of a boiler is on average 10-15 years. This is massively dependent on the make and model of the boiler and whether it has been well maintained throughout its life. If your boiler is exceeding its lifespan, it may be time for a replacement. There are now more efficient, eco-friendly boilers which may be a better option.

There are many signs that you may need to replace your boiler, many that are visible and are likely to cause further issues if they are left.

● Low efficiency rating

A less efficient boiler will cost you more than an efficient one. It takes longer to heat your water, causing an inefficiency in the system. It will also not be doing your energy bills a favour which is why investing in an A-rated boiler will not only be good for the environment but cheaper to run.

● Visible leaks

There can be several reasons why your boiler may be leaking, some more minor than others, however, if your boiler is having continuous leaks, it is likely to be more cost efficient to buy a replacement.

● Strange smells and noises

If your boiler is making strange noises or emitting odd smells, it is likely to be a sign that there are internal problems with your boiler and it either needs to be repaired or replaced.

● Bills too high

By replacing your old boiler with a more modern and efficient one, you can make savings on your energy bills. High energy bills could be a sign that your boiler needs to be replaced.
