While Gas Boilers don’t come with an expiration date, they can suddenly break down, leaving you and your family without heating.
If you can spot the warning signs early enough, you will be able to do something about it quickly. Boilers will show signs of struggle for some time before giving up completely. It is always best to act sooner rather than later when it comes to replacing your gas boiler. Replacing an old boiler is far better than installing one after a major breakdown, you will avoid heavy costs.
Here are six top warning signals that indicate you need a new boiler…
Age plays a significant factor in the efficiency of your boiler. After 10-15 years, it’s likely not operating at its optimum, and this will only get worse.
Even if your boiler isn’t experiencing significant issues, replacing it with a boiler with better efficiency, additional safety measures and advanced controls will make your life more comfortable and even reduce your heating costs.
You can save on installation costs through the efficiency of a new gas boiler.
You need a new broiler if your current one is constantly breaking down. Breakdowns may be requiring you to regulate its pressure or you may feel a chill when it’s not operating correctly.
It is pretty expensive to keep spending money on short-term fixes and buying replacement parts. Even though purchasing a replacement boiler may seem more expensive initially, it is always more cost-effective.
A new, dependable gas boiler will also eliminate the constant stress or worry associated with one that might break down at any time.
Your boiler may be responsible if you notice a constant increase in heating costs. In addition, boilers waste more energy as they age because they are less efficient at converting gas into energy.
You might also want to consider investing in an intelligent thermostat control, giving you more control over your energy use and heating.
A gas boiler should always have an intense, brilliant blue flame. If the flame is yellow or orange, your boiler may not burn the fuel thoroughly, causing carbon monoxide to leak into your home.
Carbon monoxide is a hazardous, colourless, and odourless gas. Carbon monoxide poisoning can cause fatigue, headaches, nausea, and dizziness. High exposure levels can be lethal.
This is an important reason to get regular boiler servicing and avoid last minute fixes.
Noise from your boiler should not be ignored. It doesn’t matter if you hear hammering, or gurgling sounds; they all indicate that something needs care, and the longer you ignore them, the more damage will be done.
Not only does a water leak from your boiler indicates that something is broken, but it also poses a potential safety hazard if the water contacts any electrical wiring or other parts of the boiler. This does not even address the likely harm water could cause your house. As soon as you can give the team at Fit My Boiler a call on 0862447399.
