For the majority of people in the UK, relying on their boiler for hot water and comfort in their home is something that they do every day.
Because we rely on it so much, however, means that they suffer a significant amount of wear and tear. Sadly, a boiler is a machine that isn’t built to last forever. You can repair them many times, but eventually you will have to replace them.
We know that, for most people, the intricacies of boilers and the different types available is foreign and unfamiliar territory. But here at Lloyd’s Gas, we have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the subject and are enthusiastic about sharing it with our customers so that they feel informed enough to make the best decision when choosing the boiler that best suits their home, budget and needs.
Every boiler we supply is “A Rated” meaning it meets a strict industry benchmark for quality of parts, energy-efficiency, performance and safe running.
You may feel hesitant to buy a new boiler for a variety of reasons, but it’s worth remembering that every heating service in your home will be better after the installation of a new boiler and, because of the improved energy efficiency, you will even most likely save money on energy bills.

It’s natural to want to avoid replacing your boiler unless it’s absolutely necessary. However, inevitably there will come a time where it’s your only option. The problem lies in knowing whether your boiler can be safely patched up by a professional boiler engineer or is ready for the figurative scrapheap in the sky.
One way to get an accurate status check on your boiler is to make sure you keep up with your annual boiler services. This will let you know its current condition, highlight any issues and give you an insight into how much life is left in it.

Lloyds Gas can expertly perform all manner of boiler repairs. We also let customers know when continuing to repair that has outlived its time will be false economy. At this stage, we can help with choosing a new boiler that is for you.
To see how much life is left in your boiler and identify any issues that could be affecting daily running and performance be sure to book in for an annual boiler service with Lloyds Gas today.
10 years is a long time for a machine that is used every single day. If your boiler is between 8-10 years old then it is heavily recommended that you replace it. As well as getting a fault-free, better performing boiler, newer models are also far more energy-efficient. This means you will almost certainly end up saving money on costly energy bills.
Boilers are machines with moving parts but that doesn’t mean they should be noisy. In fact, they should chug away quietly and discreetly. If your boiler is hissing, whirring, knocking, screeching, grinding, shaking or giving off any other sound that isn’t a gentle, inoffensive purr then it will need to be looked at, pronto.
You can only repair your boiler so many times before the whole thing will need to be replaced. If you find you’re regularly booking your boiler in for repair work then there’s a good chance that the entire unit is starting to fail and will need to be replaced.
There’s no leeway when it comes to a leaking boiler. Any boiler leak is potentially very dangerous and it will need to be investigated as a matter of priority.
Consistency is a signature of a boiler performing correctly. If you’re experiencing ebbs and flows when it comes to heat distribution and temperature, that’s a sign that something is amiss.
If you’re experiencing any of these issues, don’t hesitate to contact Lloyds Gas and book in for a service, annual check, repair or replacement.
Many people falsely assume that there are a large selection of different types of boiler. And whilst this much is true for different models and certain manufacturer nuances, in general, a boiler is either conventional or combination.
The traditional style of boiler which uses a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) to hold water before it is transferred into a hot water tank and distributed around the house.
They will often have an immersion system which allows for the water to be heated when the boiler fails for whatever reason, meaning you will always have some access to hot water should the worst happen.
These are a great choice for larger houses as the tanks can take up some space. It takes some time to heat the water too, which is why a lot of people who have this system make use of scheduled boiler programs to keep a hot supply readily available.
Combination boilers heat water immediately as and when it is needed. Think of it as a sort of “heat on demand”. An efficient and compact solution for smaller homes and the installation is a lot less involved than the installation of a conventional boiler. The downside is that when they break, you will have no access to hot water.
