With winter upon us, it’s important to ensure your boiler is in good working condition, so you can keep you home warm, and toasty, and stave off the winter chill. With this in mind, here we give a quick guide to some key signs to look out for, that can indicate it’s time to say goodbye to your old boiler, and consider investing in a new one.

Energy Bills

If you notice your energy bills are higher than normal, then this can be a key sign your boiler may need replacing, and typically indicates that your boiler is not working as efficiently. Many newer models tend to be much more energy efficient, and could thus save you money on your energy bills in the long term.

Whilst there are no set guidelines for how long a boiler should last, as a general rule, if your boiler is older than 10 years, it may be time to start thinking about replacing it. Many boilers will keep running for many years, and can be repaired without too much fuss, or hassle. However, it’s worth asking yourself whether maintaining and repairing your is old boiler is worthwhile, and whether you could in fact save money by installing a new one.

Temperature Fluctuations

Another key sign your boiler may need replacing, is that it doesn’t produce heat as quickly as it once did, and there are unusual temperature fluctuation in your heating. Additionally, if you notice fluctuations in the water temperature in your home, this could also suggest that there may be problems brewing with your boiler, and it may be time to think about getting a new one.


It’s common knowledge that it’s vital to get your boiler checked immediately if you are able to detect even the slightest scent of gas in your home. Whilst water leaks are less serious, these can also be a pretty important sign that all is not right with your boiler, and can be a real giveaway that your boiler may be on its way out.
