Replacing your gas boiler can be an unexpected cost. A regularly serviced and properly maintained boiler should last about 10 years. Here are some signs, If you still have any doubts about “Do I need a new gas boiler?”
Boiler is Over 10 Years Old
If your gas boiler is more than 10 years old, it will generally become less efficient. It’s more likely to start giving trouble at this point. This can be costly to fix, so replacing it with a new gas boiler is far more cost effective in the long run. Thankfully, a new gas boiler will be far more energy efficient!
The Boiler keeps Turning Itself Off
Does your gas boiler keep switching itself off? It may be a sign of trouble. There could be issues with the pressure or with the pump. A registered gas boiler service technician will be able to advise if it can be fixed for now, but may recommend a new gas boiler as a better option.
No Heat or Hot Water
If you find that the boiler is not heating up your radiators or giving you hot water, it’s definitely time to call an expert. This is a major inconvenience and if your boiler is older or having issues, it may be time for a new one.
Boiler is Losing Pressure
Your boiler requires stable pressure between 1-1.5 bars to work efficiently and heat your home. If your boiler is consistently dropping pressure, it may be a sign of a leak in the system or air seeping out. Call us straight away to assess your system. If it’s going to be a costly fix, then a new gas boiler may be the best solution.
Strange Noises Coming from the Boiler
Whether it’s a gurgling or a banging sound, strange noises coming from your boiler can indicate a larger problem. Call your local boiler expert and have them listen to the noise or tell them what it sounds like. This should give them a good indication of what’s going on. If the issue has been going on for some time, it may be time for a new boiler.
