Worried your boiler is past its best? If your boiler has been underperforming or you know it’s past its expected lifespan, it’s time to look at your options.
Check out these five signs you need a new boiler.
1. Your heating takes longer to kick in
When your home is cold, you want things to heat up quickly. If your heating is taking longer than usual to kick in, it could be a sign of a problem or that your boiler is on its last legs.
2. It’s making strange noises
Boilers can make noises when they first start up, but if it’s making noises that are out of the ordinary - you need to get it looked at. Turn the boiler off and make an appointment to have it inspected.
3. You’ve noticed an odour from your boiler
An odour from your boiler could be a sign of a serious problem. It can be very dangerous for you and your family. Turn your boiler off and call an expert heating engineer immediately.
4. Your energy bills are increasing
If your monthly energy bill is increasing, it could be a sign your boiler is working harder to heat your home and may be time to replace with a more efficient model.
5. It’s leaking
A leaking boiler is a clear sign of an issue. As a leak could cause water damage, or be the sign of another problem, you should get a leak looked at as soon as possible.
