Replacing your old boiler will save you money

When your boiler is on the blink, most homeowners will do anything to avoid replacing your old boiler. It is actually a myth that replacing your old boiler will cost more than repairing it. 

 

Some boilers are well past their use by date and repairing it can be a lengthy and expensive process. Here are some tips on recognising when it’s time to say goodbye to your old boiler and save money with a new one. 

 

The average life expectancy of your boiler depends on the type of boiler you purchased but the standard gas boiler lasts between 10 to 15 years, if you keep it well maintained and serviced annually. The average life expectancy for electric boilers is between 8 to 10 years. 

 

A superior or rather expensive boiler can last up to 20 years, although the chances are that you will have moved to a new house, or need a more energy efficient boiler, before replacing your old boiler. 

 

Therefore if your boiler is giving you trouble and it’s getting to the end of it’s life expectancy, replacing your old boiler will actually save you money in the long run. 

 

An old boiler won’t only cost you in repairs but it will also cost you more in it’s day to day. An old boiler needs to work a lot harder than any modern boiler, meaning the money you could spend on a new boiler is being wasted on bills. With a new boiler, your home and water will heat a lot faster and you can avoid excessive costs each month.

 

Often an old boiler will have a lower band rating, which again means you are spending more money using the boiler each and every day. Boilers have an A-G band rating, A being the most efficient and G being the least efficient. This should be the first thing you check when you consider replacing your boiler. 

 

If your new boiler has a band rating of A or B, you should have a highly efficient boiler and will instantly save you hundreds every year compared to using a band rating of G. 

 

G-rated boilers are usually about 65% efficient, compared to A-rated which is 90% of more.  

 

A more modern boiler could not only save you money but in the long term provide more security and a guarantee of care with a warranty.
