Boiler Repair or Boiler Replacement?by Wool F. Keeping Yorkshire’s homes and businesses warm
When your boiler breaks down, it can be difficult to know whether to pay for it to be repaired or whether to invest in a brand-new boiler. There are some things to consider before making the decision – and calling a professional Heating Engineer Leeds to assess your boiler is also a must.
Is Your Boiler in Good Condition?
Boilers that have external issues such as rust, or those which haven’t been well maintained, may not be worth repairing. If this applies to your boiler then you might find it’s more cost-effective to replace your boiler, as it could cost you more in future!
How Old is Your Boiler?
Generally speaking, fairly new boilers are cost-effective to repair in the long run. Most boilers come with a minimum guarantee of 2 years, so the manufacturer will cover any cost for fitting replacement parts, provided it’s still under guarantee. Even if your guarantee has expired, a breakdown may just be a case of being unlucky. Chances are, this repair is a one-off and you may not need to pay for further repairs until your boiler is old and needs to be replaced.
In contrast, boilers that are 10 years old (or older) could end up needing regular repairs in future, so it’s probably cheaper to invest in a replacement.
