When should you replace your boiler?

Boilers are essential for providing heat and hot water to your home, so it’s important to know when it’s time to replace yours. Here are some signs that your boiler may be nearing the end of its lifespan:

  • Your boiler is over 15 years old: The average lifespan of a boiler is 10-15 years, so if yours is older than that, it’s likely to be less efficient and more prone to breakdowns.
  • Your boiler is making strange noises: If your boiler is making banging, clunking, or whistling noises, it’s a sign that something is wrong. These noises could be caused by a number of problems, such as a faulty valve or a build-up of limescale.
  • Your boiler is leaking: If you notice any leaks around your boiler, it’s important to have it checked out immediately. Leaks can indicate a serious problem, such as a cracked heat exchanger.
  • Your boiler is inefficient: If you’re noticing a sudden increase in your energy bills, it could be a sign that your boiler is not running efficiently. An old or inefficient boiler can waste a lot of energy, which can drive up your costs.
  • Your boiler is breaking down frequently: If your boiler is breaking down more often than usual, it’s a sign that it’s time to replace it. Repeated breakdowns can be expensive and inconvenient, and they can also put your home and family at risk.
