Repair My Boiler or Install a New Boiler: Which One Should I Choose?

Has your boiler broken down? There is nothing worse than trying to switch your boiler on and find it just won't work the way it's meant to. If this is the case in your home, you need to decide whether to get it repaired- or replace it for a new model. Both options have pros and cons, so there is no one right answer to this question. Instead, it depends on several of the following factors...


Boiler repairs

Getting your boiler repaired is often the quickest and simplest way to get your home back up and running again. However, this does not mean it is always the right option. If this is the first time your boiler has broken down, a simple repair will usually be the right option for you. A gas engineer will be able to take a look at your boiler and rectify the issue for you before long. 

Getting a brand new boiler won't be too beneficial if your current boiler is only a few years old, as new boiler technology is not likely to have developed much in this time- instead, simply get it repaired.

Boiler replacements

If you are constantly running into problems with your boiler, it may be the right time to get it replaced. The cost of so many repairs can easily build up over time, so it is a better idea to get a brand new boiler. You shouldn't run into faults for years to come, giving you peace of mind in knowing you won't need to budget for any costly repairs for a while.

It is also a good idea to replace your boiler if your current model is over ten years old. When you upgrade to a newer model, you will experience so many benefits that you don't currently have, such as safety, efficiency and size.
