Is there a good time for your boiler to break? If there is, it definitely would not be during the colder winter months.
If your Wirral boiler breaks down, it could take up to 3 days to repair it, leaving you without proper heating, which could be inconvenient and a risk to your health.
So, how can you avoid being left out in the cold because of a broken boiler?
Boiler installation experts suggest replacing your boiler during warmer months. Here we take a look at why summer is the best time to replace your Wirral boiler.
When Should You Replace Your Wirral Boiler?
Some Wirral homeowners only consider replacing their boiler once it’s broken, but your boiler’s age and performance will tell you when it’s time for a replacement.
You should replace your boiler every 10-15 years. Although older boilers can still heat your home, they are significantly less efficient and effective than modern boilers. Modern boilers installed across the UK are generally 92% efficient, allowing homeowners to save some significant cash on their energy bills.
For every £1 you spend on heating your home, only 8p will be wasted. Compared to older boilers that are only around 70% efficient, you could save up to £305 over the course of a year with a new boiler, depending on your energy tariffs.
If it’s becoming more difficult to find parts for your boiler each time it needs a service or a minor fix, it might be time for a new Wirral boiler. Older boiler parts are expensive and difficult to source, delaying the boiler repair process. Waiting for the correct parts could leave you without proper heating for an extended period. Even if it’s just a day or two, living without a boiler is not an option for a household with either young or elderly family members.
What Are The Benefits of Replacing Your Wirral Boiler in Summer?
Although you can replace your boiler at any time of the year, there are benefits to installing a new boiler during the warmer months. These include:
Summer is the most convenient time for you to get a new boiler as you’re not as dependent on your central heating system during this warmer season. Installing a new boiler in summer will get you ready for the winter months when your central heating demands will inevitably increase.
For families with young children or elderly relatives, being without a boiler during the colder months is simply not an option. A boiler replacement in Wirral can take 1-3 days depending on factors such as your home’s heating system’s overall condition. Replacing your boiler during the summer months lessens the impact of going without hot water for a couple of days.
2. Faster Quality Service
Boilers tend to break at the most inconvenient times. Every winter, heating engineers are fully booked and rushing out to fix frozen/burst pipes, heating issues, and boiler breakdowns. Replacing your Wirral boiler during the quieter months increases your likelihood of getting a faster boiler repair service at a time that suits your schedule.
If your boiler breaks unexpectedly, you will have to rush to find a replacement and choose the first boiler installation outfit you come across. But, by planning ahead and having a new boiler installed in summer, you can give yourself more time to research and compare boiler brands and installation companies. There are different types of boilers, leaving you with many options to choose from. Having enough time to make an informed decision about the boiler and installation company will help you speed up the boiler installation company and ensure you receive high-quality service.
3. Saving on Winter Bills
It’s no secret that families spend more on energy bills during autumn and winter. The increase in heating demand caused by an old boiler can put a strain on your budget, especially when your home’s heating system is not performing optimally.
New condensing boilers have become increasingly popular in British households because they can save you up to £305 per year. Modern boilers can also recycle the heat they generate, which can reduce your household’s winter bills even further.
