How do you know when to replace your old boiler at home?
Your boiler is essential to your home, providing heat and hot water day in and day out. So, when it shows signs of wear and tear or stops working, you need to know when to replace it.
Here are some tell-tale signs that your boiler may be on its last legs:
1.It’s over 15 years old
If your boiler is over 15 years old, it’s likely time for a replacement. Boilers have a lifespan of around 15-20 years, so if yours gets older, it may not be as efficient as it once was. A new energy-efficient boiler will be more efficient and save you money on your energy bills.
2.You’re noticing an increase in your energy bills
If you’ve noticed that your energy bills have been gradually increasing, even though your usage hasn’t changed, it could be due to an inefficient boiler. An old boiler won’t run as efficiently as a new one, meaning more fuel is needed to heat your home, costing you more money. Replacing your boiler with a new A-rated model could help reduce your energy bills by up to £350 a year*, so it’s worth considering if you’re looking to save money.
3.Your boiler is making strange noises
