Should I Repair or Replace My Boiler?

Having a broken boiler is never a good thing, but it is made even worse when you don't know whether to get it repaired or replaced. Each option has different pros and cons and the right choice depends solely on your situation. To help you make the right choice, we have created a handy guide for you to follow.


Boiler repairs

Getting your boiler repaired is a good short term option, especially suitable for newer boilers. For example, if this is the first problem you have experienced with your boiler, it is unlikely you will need to get it replaced- and a simple repair may do the trick. When done correctly, a boiler repair can be just as safe as getting it replaced, while costing you much less money and needing much less time. With a boiler repair, you can be back up and running within the same day. If the issue is easily repairable, then this is definitely the best option to go for. 

Boiler replacements

A boiler replacement is a much more long term option, as your new boiler can last for over ten years into the future. Boiler replacements can be expensive, so you don't want to replace your current model until you have to. If it often breaks down, it may be best to consider a repair, as this will likely save you money in the long run. As well as this, if you have had your boiler for over ten years, getting it replaced will do wonders for the efficiency of your home, so this is something else to consider! Similarly, if your boiler is this old, then spare parts will be much harder to find- which can considerably raise the price of a repair (and the costs will never come back down again!). If your repair will be unnecessarily expensive, it is much better in the long run for you to get it replaced.
