Should I Repair or Replace My Boiler

Sometimes its best to repair your boiler; sometimes its better to completely replace it. In this blog post, you'l find a few things to consider before making that decision. Why are these considerations important? Well, firstly, its crucial that you understand the best route of action for your boiler and secondly, a boiler is a huge investment in your property and a brand new boiler is quite expensive.

Safety First

The first consideration you should make before decided whether you should repair or replace your boiler is to have a Gas Safe registered engineer help you make that decision. Why? Because a Gas Safe registered engineer is qualified and has the experience to know what's best for your boiler. Once they have established whether your boiler can be safely repaired or if it requires replacing, you can then move on to other considerations. You should also know that whilst your boiler may be repairable, it could still experience faults/problems in the future, just like any other boiler could. With this in mind, you should consider whether it may just be best to take out the old boiler and install a new one. 

Newer Boilers Offer Improved Efficiency 

How does saving money on your energy bills due to better efficiency with your boiler sound? With newer boilers, they offer improved efficiency in comparison to older boilers. What this means is that your older boiler could be less efficient, which could be increasing your energy bills. This consideration is long-term as a newer boiler could last you and your home years to come and make annual energy bills savings for you. 

Not only does a newer boiler offer better efficiency and the possibility of reduced energy bills; it can also add value to your property if and when you come to selling your property to move.

The Expense of Repairing Your Boiler

Repairing your boiler could actually be the best route to take if you're thinking about repairing or replacing your boiler. It isn't always the case that your boiler simply needs replacing and if the repair is straightforward, it could be the most cost-effective option. On top of this, if you have a newer boiler, you may still qualify for the boiler manufacturers warranties/guarantees on the boiler you had installed. This means that potentially, the parts and labour involved in the repair could be covered. 

However, if your boiler is a lot older, it could mean that the parts required to repair the boiler are hard to source due to the boiler's age. Thus, the repair of your boiler may not be as cost-effective as simply replacing it. Whatever the case, you should have a Gas Safe registered engineer help you decide whether a repair or replace is the best option.
