Have you just moved into a new property with an old boiler? Or is your current boiler continually letting you down? Then it could be time for a new boiler. Your home can’t properly function without a boiler in good working order, especially in the colder winter months.
But how can you tell when it’s time to upgrade to a new boiler?
When Should You Consider Investing in a New Boiler Wirral?
There are several tell-tale signs that the boiler in your Wirral home needs upgrading. First and foremost, does your boiler frequently break down? That’s usually an indication that it’s coming towards the end of its useable life.
Another primary consideration is age, old boilers (even ones that still work as they should) are notoriously inefficient and cost you money through increased utility bills. If your boiler is floor-mounted, that’s usually an indication that your boiler is more than a decade old.
For reference, the average life expectancy for a boiler is roughly 10 to 15 years. But it will need regular maintenance to make it that far, and after that point, you will have no option but to replace it with a new one.
Why is Using a Gas Safe Registered Engineer So Important for Your New Boiler Installation?
Appliances that use gas such as your boiler are perfectly safe if installed by a Gas Safe registered engineer but could be deadly if installed by an unqualified boiler installer. That’s why you must look for the Gas Safe logo and check your chosen gas engineer’s credentials before proceeding with a new boiler installation.
Carbon monoxide (the gas that escapes through the flue of your boiler) is extremely flammable and also extremely toxic if inhaled. Therefore, the heating engineer you employ for your new boiler installation must know what they are doing and have the Gas Safe certification to prove it.
Which is the Right Type of Boiler for Me?
There are plenty of options when it comes to choosing your new boiler, and each type has its own merits. But the answer will depend mostly on your current arrangements, the number of people living at your property, and how many bathrooms you have.
If you have a large family, you are likely to use lots of hot water, so a conventional or system boiler might be more appropriate. On the other hand, smaller households are likely to use less heating and hot water and are likely to be better off with a combi boiler. Either way, an experienced plumber will be able to talk you through the best options for your new boiler installation.
