When should you replace or service your boiler?

In the British climate, it’s not really possible to live without hot water and heating. In the coldest days of winter, your boiler will be working at its hardest, and it’s also the time that you least want it to break down. It’s therefore a good idea to get your boiler serviced ahead of the coldest periods, so any potential issues can be picked up right away.

It may also be the case that you want to replace your boiler. Maybe it’s been starting to have issues, or perhaps it’s just rather old. If you have an older boiler, it may not be as efficient as a modern condensing boiler, which means you’ll be paying considerably more on your energy bill. With the unit cost of gas still being higher than many of us are traditionally used to, it can make more sense in the long run to just get a new boiler fitted.

It will be least disruptive to install a new boiler when it’s warm outside and you’re not relying on your heating to stay warm. You will likely also find it easier to get an appointment at a time that suits you, unlike in winter, when many engineers will be busy with emergency callouts as people’s boilers have failed at the worst possible time.
