When should worry about a replacement boiler?

We have a lot of people ask when they should be concerned about a replacement boiler.   This does depend on a lot of different factors.  Everyone has heard of the old floor standing boilers that go on pretty much forever without a problem.   These are the stalwarts of the boiler range!  It is tempting to leave these boilers until they start to become unreliable and, as long as they are serviced regularly and are deemed to be completely safe, this is probably the most sensible thing to do.   The only issue with the old range of boilers is that they are more expensive to run.  As long as you are happy with this, then you can just leave your old floor standing boiler to tick over happily until it gives up the ghost.  When it does fail though, it is really not worth trying to repair it, go straight for a replacement boiler.

With the modern range of A rated boilers, many people will not expect to replace their boiler for at least 10-15 years.  This is about the right length of time for the modern range of boilers.

Boiler Finance Scheme

If you do decide to replace your boiler with an A rated boiler,  recent survey carried out by Which? showed that around half of the boilers purchased between 2008 and October 2014 needed to have at least one repair compared with only two in five Worcester gas boilers (38%).  The Which survey showed that Worcester Bosch boilers and Vaillant boilers were the most reliable brand. My Plumber is able to provide clients with either a 5 or 8 year warranty on a newly fitted Worcester Bosch or Vaillant boiler.

Worcester Bosch 8 Year Guarantee

So this means that, if you do have a fault within that time, your boiler will be repaired under the boiler warranty free of charge. From My Plumber’s experience with customer services, Worcester Bosch scores the highest with appointments being made quickly with great customer services. This is followed closely by Vaillant who also offer a 5 year warranty to cover you if you have any problems. My Plumber will fit both Worcester Bosch and Vaillant boilers depending on what is best for your property.  Click here to find out more about London boiler installations.
