Is your central heating system lagging in performance? Feel obligated to improve the overall heating efficiency of your home? If this is the case then it certainly is time to think about getting your boiler replaced.
An inefficient boiler not only keeps your home cold but also drains your finances with high bills. The key is to get maximum heating on minimum energy bills which cannot be achieved without a properly functioning gas heating boiler.
Present day boilers are more efficient as compared to their predecessors built almost a decade ago. If your boiler is 10 to 15 years old, it probably is not efficient enough and should be replaced with a newer model. About a decade back gas heating boilers didn’t have the type of heating controls as they do today. With the help of these modern heating controls that are installed with the boiler, you can now precisely control the heating of the area you desire. Targeted heating of a particular area inside your home will improve the heating quality and reduce your bills.
Before you sign a contract for boiler replacement with any installer there are some factors that need to be considered:
Know Exactly How Much You Would Be Saving
Most boiler installer companies claim a saving of about £270 to £310 per year on bills after the installation of a new gas boiler. Statistically these figures are for houses with the oldest boilers that are least efficient, and have three-bedrooms.
A new boiler doesn’t require repair work which means you will be able to save a lot. Old boilers constantly need repair work, which puts tremendous pressure on your finances. It therefore makes sense to opt for a new heating system than to continue with the old.
Old Boilers and their Repairing Problems
As the boiler becomes older, replacement parts become scarce. This gradually raises the prices of these parts making the repair process a lot more expensive and lengthy. Old boilers even in working condition can never be as efficient as the new models. This makes it more important for you to realise that you finally need to replace your old boiler with a new and more efficient system. This will directly impact the overall performance of the Central Heating System. So, from financial point of view it doesn’t make any sense to spend your hard earned cash on boiler repairs almost every year, therefore, it is better to replace the boiler and stop spending extra money on repairs.
Keeping your boilers in top shape requires annual servicing. Most installers offer boiler servicing on low rates. Getting your boiler serviced maintains its efficiency and prolongs the lifespan.
It is highly recommended that in order to avoid repairing expenses, it is better to opt for an equipment service. Be sure to call an experienced installer company for the servicing of your central heating system. It isn’t very expensive provided no replacement parts are required. So to avoid long term expenses, getting your boiler serviced annually is a better option.
