Should I Repair My Boiler or Install a New Boiler?

Has your boiler currently broken down? If so, you may be asking yourself whether it's worth getting it repaired, or whether its time you upgrade to a newer, more updated model. Both options depend on a few different factors, and there is no one answer to suit all situations. To help you make the most suitable choice, ask yourself the following questions...

Is your boiler safe? 

If you swap to a new boiler with our team then we can guarantee your home will be safe and sound. However, getting your current boiler repaired may do the trick just as well. If a gas engineer takes a look at your boiler and decides it will still be unsafe even after it has been repaired, it is time to consider upgrading to a newer, safer model.

How often does your boiler break down?

Do you find yourself asking this question all of the time? If your boiler is broken more often than not, then it is definitely time to get an upgrade. While it may be more costly right now, it is definitely going to save you money in the long run. If this is the first time your boiler has broken down, it may be better for you to just get it repaired.

How old is your boiler?

If your boiler is over ten years old, it is definitely time you upgrade to a new model. Your new model will be much safer and more efficient. It also shouldn't need repairing for years to come! However, if your boiler is much younger than this, it is not so vital you upgrade.

How much will a repair cost?

If you have an older boiler, your repair will be much more costly, as it is harder to find spare parts. You also need to remember that this cost is only going to rise as time goes on. If this is the case, a new boiler may be better long term. Although, if you receive a quote for a repair and it is relatively low, a repair may be the better option.
