Your boiler keeps you warm in the winter & provides hot water all year round when you need it, therefore keeping your boiler working as efficiently as possible is vital.
You probably only ever think about changing your boiler until it breaks down or is getting old, typically 15+ years. So when thinking about buying a new boiler you need to understand what is best for your property & your family. There is a lot of information online from boiler manufacturers who explain the different types of boilers & systems and the benefits of having that new boiler installed in your home. Once you have an understanding of what boiler would suit your property and family then find a company to come and carry out a survey and they should be giving you all the information you require to make an informed decision.
The average lifespan of a boiler is around 10-15 years. If yours is approaching that age then you may want to consider having a new boiler fitted. You should always getting your boiler serviced annually, this could prolong the lifespan of your boiler. Your engineer can then let you know of any developing problems with your boiler before it breaks down out of the blue leaving you with no heating or hot water. Sometimes a repair can be very expensive and to spend large amounts of money on a repair to a boiler that is approaching the end of its lifespan makes it beyond economical repair. Don’t forget when you have a new boiler fitted it will come with a manufacturers warranty/guarantee so this will cover any parts & labour on your new boiler installation throughout its warranty period.
