Replacing your boiler
When replacing your boiler there are many things to consider, such as cost, boiler type and efficiency. It can be a difficult decision and understanding what the best boiler is for your needs can be daunting.
When is the right time to replace your boiler?
There is no exact time frame on how long your boiler will last, however, the average life of a boiler is usually between 10-15 years. This is dependent on multiple factors, such as, use, maintenance and type of boiler. Instead of basing your decision on the age of your boiler, it is worth keeping an eye on your energy bills and the comfort of your home.
If you have noticed that your home is taking longer to heat up, or your hot water is unreliable, then it might worth thinking about having your boiler replaced.
Why should you replace your boiler?
Replacing your boiler will make your home warmer and more comfortable, as well as saving you money on your energy bills. Replacing your boiler also gives you an opportunity to upgrade the rest of your heating system to make sure it is as efficient as possible. Adding new controls, Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRV’s) as well as sensors can make your system more energy efficient.
The smart connected Bosch EasyControl combined with TRV’s gives you complete control of your heating system.
