When it comes to living comfortably, a working boiler is essential. Keeping your home warm during the colder months and ensuring your water runs hot all year round, your boiler needs to be working properly in order to stave off miserable nights of cold showers and chilly living rooms.
Whilst having a professional repair technician on hand to carry out any necessary repairs and servicing requirements can keep your boiler running smoothly for much longer, the average unit only has a lifespan of between 10 to 15 years and some issues might be too costly to rectify.
With this in mind, investing in a brand-new boiler may be the better option. However, with an investment as big as this, it can be a bit daunting to know whether buying a new unit is a good idea. Luckily, there are a range of benefits to upgrading - here are just a few of them.
You may be surprised as to how far boiler units have progressed over the last 15 years and, if your unit is a bit long in the tooth, you could be missing out on huge savings. Your boiler is responsible for 60% of your energy bills, which is why a newer, more efficient boiler could end up saving you a significant amount of money.
Most new condensing boilers are usually rated A and above are 90% efficient or above whilst older units can struggle to reach more than 60%. By making the switch to a new model, you could end up saving yourself hundreds of pounds every year, with the boiler effectively paying for itself.
Smaller and quieter
Older boilers are infamous for being big, noisy pieces of machinery, however, this doesn’t have to be the case for you. If you’re struggling with an irritatingly loud and big unit, it may be time to look for a new model.
Newer designs such as the more efficient combi-boiler are far smaller than standard models and run much quieter thanks to a host of innovations over the years.
Thankfully, long gone are the days of simply switching the heating on and off, as boilers that have a heating controller can ensure that every room is at the perfect temperature. Homes with TRVs and a heating controller can choose how warm they want a room quickly and easily, getting heat where you need it.
