There will come a time when you’ll see signs you need a new boiler – and you will have to replace it, either because it is completely irreparable, keeps breaking down, or is no longer as efficient as it once was.
But what are the replacement boiler warning signs? How do you know when you should keep having it repaired, or when it’s time to get your boiler replaced? Below we give four signs that your boiler needs to be replaced: –
1. Your Boiler Is Making Strange Noises
If you notice that your boiler is making noises that you do not recognise, then it could be struggling. Noises like whistling, knocking, popping and hissing are signs of potential uneven water distribution, or air bubbles forming in the pipes.
2. You Are Frequently Having To Adjust The Thermostat
A boiler that is working correctly will keep the temperature you have chosen constant for the time the boiler is on. If you notice that you have to adjust the thermostat to keep the temperature where you want it, then this could be a sign of a boiler that is malfunctioning.
3. Water Is Leaking From Your Boiler
Water leaking from your boiler is a noticeable sign that all is not well. Look for leaks and scaling around the pipes in the boiler. Some leakage is normal over the lifetime of your boiler, but if it occurs quite often and the amount of leak is greater, then it is probably time for a new boiler.
4. You Are Having To Have Frequent Repairs Carried Out On Your Boiler
All boilers need to be repaired occasionally, but no boiler will go on forever! Frequent repairs will be a sign that your boiler is ageing and there will come it time when it is not worth the cost of a big repair.
