Your boiler is one of the hardest-working appliances in your home. But if it’s old and breaks down, you’ll wish you’d replaced it sooner.
Replacements pay off
While regular servicing can help to keep your boiler working safely and efficiently, old boilers can be more expensive to run, so it could pay off to replace it.
But a new, efficient boiler can do more than shrink your energy bills by up to £315 a year 1. By helping you save energy, it’ll boost your journey to zero-carbon too.
Signs your boiler is on the way out
Your house and hot water isn’t that warm anymore
If your radiators take too long to heat up or your water
doesn’t come through as hot as it used to, it might mean
your boiler is nearly ready to be replaced.
Your energy bill has gone up
...even though your energy plan, and the hours you heat your
home, haven’t changed. That’s because boilers become more
costly to run as they age. Look for the ErP energy label to see
how efficient yours should be. All new condensing boilers in
the UK must have an ErP efficiency rating of 92% or more.
Your boiler is leaking
Boiler puddles mean internal parts could be faulty or are
beginning to fall apart. Get an engineer out quickly, as it
could be time for a new boiler.
Your boiler is making dodgy noises
Beyond your boiler’s normal firing-up sound or gentle purr,
other noises could mean trouble – from broken valves, heat
pump issues, to general wear and tear.
Your boiler smells
This is serious. It might be that a leak is causing the boiler to
not burn properly, which puts you at risk from carbon
monoxide. If you suspect you’ve got a leak, call the National
Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999.

In line with government guidance, we're only sending engineers out to replace non-operational boilers at this time.
