Should I Repair or Replace my Boiler

When issues occur with your boiler, it can be easy to think a repair is always the best option. Sometimes, you need a boiler replacement to really remove the problem. However, it can be hard to know which option is best for you! The answer depends on your individual situation, so keep reading to find out what we recommend.


Boiler repairs

If this is the first time your boiler has broken down, you will be fine simply getting it repaired. A boiler repair will be the cheaper and more sensible option for you to go for. If your gas engineer thinks a boiler replacement is the better option, they can advise on this during your repair.

If your boiler is relatively new, such as just a few years old, a repair is going to be ideal for you. The cost of spare parts will still be relatively low and getting a new boiler will not give many new benfits for you to enjoy.

Boiler replacements

If your boiler is over ten years old, it is definitely time to consider getting it replaced. Your new boiler will be much more efficient and safer than ever before, which can make a real difference to your energy bills each month. As your boiler gets older, repairs also get more expensive, since spare parts become harder to find. Replacing your boiler will reduce these costs considerably.

As well as this, if your boiler constantly seems to be broken or in need of a repair, then a new boiler can save you money in the long run. Rather than lots of smaller costs in a short period of time, you will have one larger, upfront cost to replace your boiler. 

If your boiler is unsafe, replacing it can be the best way to make sure your home is safe again. For example, if your boiler has leaked carbon monoxide into your home, you may feel much more relaxed to simply swap your boiler altogether.
