9 Signs You Need A New Boiler

Updated: Jul 23, 2022

Getting a new boiler is a big investment, so you need to make sure you really need one. Keep reading to find out the top 9 signs you need to replace your boiler!

1. Your Boiler Is Over 10 Years Old

If your boiler is over a decade old, you will benefit hugely from a new boiler. Over time your boiler becomes more and more inefficient due to operational wear and tear resulting in higher energy bills.

2. Your Boiler Isn't A Rated For Efficiency

An inefficient boiler wastes you money every month on repairs. Rather than a boiler that might be only 50% efficient, why not switch to one that is over 90% efficient? Think of all the savings you'll enjoy each month!

3. Regular Repairs And Breakdowns

If your old boiler needs repairing regularly, it is wasting more money than it is worth. A new boiler may seem like a lot of money, but think about how much money you have been spending to repair your current boiler. A new boiler with a warranty or guarantee can end up being much better for your wallet!

4. Your Energy Bills Are Skyrocketing

If your bills are creeping up, it could be time to get a new boiler. As your boiler gets older and more worn out, it will struggle to run as efficiently, meaning you will struggle to keep your bills down.

5. Your Boiler Or Radiators Are Increasingly Noisy

A noisy boiler or radiator system is another disruption you just don't need. Switching to a new system will not only give you some peace and quiet but it will also improve efficiency and reduce gas bills.

6. Your Boiler Burns A Yellow Flame

A yellow flame (rather than blue) can be a sign of a carbon monoxide issue. Carbon monoxide is a very dangerous gas, so you should get your boiler looked at ASAP.

7. You Struggle To Find Spare Parts For Repairs

If your boiler is so old that you struggle to find spare parts for it, you definitely need to get it swapped. A new boiler will make your life so much easier!

8. Your Boiler Is Leaking

If your boiler is leaking water, it can cause damage to the surrounding areas, as well as to the boiler itself. Rather than settling for water damage and mould, why not just swap to a better boiler?

9. It Doesn't Meet Your Needs Anymore

If your boiler just isn't right for your home anymore, it is definitely time to treat yourself to an upgrade. Think of all the benefits of a better boiler!
