Should I Repair or Replace My Boiler?

Boiler repairs 

Getting your boiler repaired is a good option if this is the first time you have run into any issues. This will mean your boiler is likely to be very new, so a replacement will not benefit you much at all. As well as this, the majority of spare parts for your boiler will be easy to find, so you won't have to splash out on anything too pricey.

A boiler repair is a much cheaper option but can be just as effective in some cases. During your repair, the gas engineer can advise you on the safety of your boiler and they will recommend you on what to do if any more damage occurs.

Boiler replacements

Getting your boiler replaced may seem like a big step, but sometimes it is the best option in the long run. A new boiler is the most definite way to remove any faults that may be present with your current boiler, and it also guarantees safety and reliability. 

If your boiler is over ten years old, we recommend you upgrade to a new model. Spare parts will be rarer, in turn making them more expensive. A replacement is also a good option for if you experience faults with your boiler very regularly. A new boiler removes the risk of this occurring for years to come.
