Millions of homeowners rely on their gas boilers to heat their water and keep their homes comfortable and warm every day.
Unfortunately, significant wear and tear comes with this heavy reliance. A gas boiler, much like a car, isn't built to last forever. They can be repaired multiple times, but there will come a time when a replacement and upgrade is the only solution.

Does your boiler need to be replaced or can it simply be repaired? It can sometimes be difficult to know.
That being said, having an annual service performed is one way to always know how your boiler is performing and how much life is left in your home-heating friend. This prevents the costly repairs that come with unexpected boiler breakdowns.
There will come a time where it becomes false economy to continue repairing a gas boiler that is degrading to the point beyond repair, even though boiler repair costs will generally be lower than the cost of having your current boiler replaced.
There are many factors that separate a gas boiler in need of replacement from one that you can repair.
To diagnose all of the common problems and find out the state of your current system, the best option is to call upon plumbing and heating experts like Lloyds Gas.
There are many reasons why someone might need to get a replacement boiler. For example:
Boilers are not built to last forever, no matter how well you look after them. It will be time to retire your long-serving boiler and arrange a new boiler install if your boiler is reaching its senior years. New models often are significantly more energy-efficient than old ones and will save you money in the long run with a vast reduction in energy bills. That’s worth thinking about if you're someone who is put off by the initial outlay that comes with a new boiler.
No boiler should be very loud when it's running, even though it’s working hard to heat your radiators and water.
If your old boiler is making knocking, grinding or hissing noises, it will need to be examined and probably replaced.
It's likely that the components in your current boiler are wearing out at a faster rate due to a more serious problem if you're finding yourself booking in repair work more frequently than before.
There's only a limited amount of boiler repairs you can carry out before having to accept that a new boiler is needed.
Any signs or evidence of leaks is a surefire way of knowing that your current boiler is no longer working as it should. If you see any leaks coming from your boiler, you should get a replacement arranged immediately. Leaks present a huge safety risk as it could mean the emission of scentless yet toxic carbon monoxide.
An error in regulation and distribution from your boiler can be detected when temperatures fluctuate unexpectedly or water takes a very long time to heat up.
In severe instances this means it has reached the end of its life.
Only two to pick from here: conventional or combi
A traditional style that works by taking water from a cold water tank that is usually in the loft.
The cold water goes to a hot water tank where it is kept until needed. This is useful if the boiler fails because you still have a reserve of hot water. Conventional boilers are often linked to an immersion system that heats the water in the tank without the boiler.
The downside is that you need to wait for your water to become hot before you can use it and as there are two tanks the set up occupies more space.
Combination boilers give you "heat on demand". The water is heated directly from the source as there is no tank. They are a brilliant option for saving space which is good for smaller homes. They are also relatively simple which means there is less work for the plumber during the install. However, when they go down you are left without hot water entirely.
