When Do You Need a New Boiler? Recognising the Signs

The need for a new boiler isn’t always immediately evident, but several telltale signs suggest it’s time to consider a replacement. Keep an eye out for the following indications:
If you notice any of these signs with your boiler, it’s time to consider a new, energy-efficient boiler. At E & W Plumbing & Heating, we’re here to help guide you through selecting and installing a new boiler, ensuring a warm, comfortable, and safe home.
Age of the Boiler

If your boiler is over 15, it might be time for a replacement. Although boilers can last for many years with proper maintenance, newer models are far more energy-efficient and can save energy bills significantly.

Frequent Repairs

Are you frequently calling for boiler repairs? If so, it's often more cost-effective to replace your boiler rather than continue to pay for regular maintenance.

Increasing Energy Bills

An older boiler may still be functioning but isn't running as efficiently as it could be. If you notice a sudden increase in your energy bills, your boiler may be to blame.

Inconsistent Heating or Hot Water

If you're experiencing inconsistent or insufficient heating or hot water, your boiler may fail. You may notice that some rooms are hotter than others or that the hot water supply is unstable.

Yellow Flame

Your boiler's flame should be a strong, clear blue. If it's yellow or orange, it's time to call in a professional, as this could be a sign of carbon monoxide, a serious health risk.

Carbon Monoxide Detector Alarm

If your carbon monoxide detector goes off, it's crucial to get everyone out of the house, ventilate the area and call a professional immediately. This could be a sign of a serious boiler fault.

Understanding Different Types of Gas Boilers

Gas boilers are a common choice for homeowners thanks to their efficiency, reliability, and wide range of sizes and types available. There are three main gas boilers: Combi boilers, System boilers, and Regular (or conventional) boilers. Each type comes with its own set of benefits and considerations, and the best one for you will depend on the size of your property, your hot water demand, and other specific needs. Here’s a quick breakdown:

Combi (Combination) Boilers

Combi boilers are an increasingly popular choice in the UK due to their compact size and efficiency. They heat water directly from the mains when a tap is turned on, meaning you don’t need a separate hot water storage cylinder or a cold-water storage tank in the roof space. They’re ideal for small to medium sized homes with one bathroom.
System boiler

System Boilers

System boilers require a cylinder for storing hot water. Still, the heating and hot water system components are built into the boiler, making installation quicker and easier than a conventional boiler. This type of boiler is a good choice for homes with more than one bathroom or homes where a lot of hot water is used simultaneously.
Gas Conventional boiler

Regular (Conventional) Boilers

Also known as heat-only or traditional boilers, regular boilers have a boiler, a hot water storage cylinder, and often an expansion tank in the loft. They are ideal for homes with multiple bathrooms, low water pressure, or households with a lot of hot water used simultaneously.
