Always Consider Safety First 

First thing first, it is crucial that you consider safety before making any decisions on your boiler. What do this mean? Simply put, you want to make sure your boiler can be safely repaired or if it is best to replace it. You should get in touch with a Gas Safe registered engineer who can help with knowing if boiler is repairable or needs replacing. This is also important as even if your boiler is repairable, it could still be prone to regular problems; thus, replacing your boiler might be the best option. 

Once you've had a Gas Safe registered engineer help with your boiler to make sure its repairable and is safe to continue using or needs replacing, you should consider the next points below. If your boiler is better off being replacing, find out how we can help with our boiler installation service

The Costs of a Repair

With repairing your current boiler, it depends on a couple of things to consider; for instance, if your boiler is much older, it could be that the parts required to carry out the repair are hard to find. This means that ultimately, your boiler repair could be less cost-effective than simply replacing it. 

However, its worth mentioning that if the repair of your boiler is straightforward, then a repair of your boiler could be the best route to take. Also, as newer boilers come with extended warranties and guarantees, this means that sometimes the parts and labour involved in the repair are covered by this; making the repair simple and straightforward.
