A boiler is one of the essential appliances in the home, which is used all year round. Because having a working boiler is so crucial. It is important that you keep your boiler in the best possible condition. If you decide you want to replace your boiler with a newer, more efficient model, or if your boiler is beyond repair, there are certain factors to consider about when it should be replaced.

You must select the best company for the work, regardless of your circumstance, if you want to have a new boiler installed.

Act Sooner Rather Than Later
The typical boiler lifespan is between 10 and 15 years. Your boiler may have endured multiple breakdowns and repairs, but if it is an older model or has continued to develop numerous defects and mechanical problems, it may have reached the point where further repairs are no longer practical financially and it is now time to replace it. If this sounds familiar, then let us know here at GB Gas Services Ltd. Our experts can visit your house, evaluate the current system there, and give you advice on a suitable replacement that will, if possible, fit into the current space and help you save time and money in the long run.
What Time of Year Should I Replace My Boiler?
If you are able to plan when your new boiler will be fitted, then many people think that it is preferable to have it installed in the spring or summer months. There are several reasons why this is, so we have outlined them for you here to consider.
Temperature and Home Comforts
If you want to replace your boiler, then it is better if you can do so in the warmer months so you can manage at home without heating and hot water for a day or two during installation. Having a boiler fitted on your terms, rather than waiting for an emergency situation, means you will feel far more in control of your living situation for you and your family.
Cost of New Boilers
As the colder weather arrives, the demand for boiler servicing, repairs and installations go up. This means that some companies increase their prices. To avoid this pitfall, aim to service your boiler annually with a reputable company such as GB Gas Services Ltd to ensure your boiler is safe and reliable. If you do find that your boiler is starting to cost you money in repairs, then you will be able to plan a time to have a new one that will suit you and your finances, rather than waiting until you have no choice.
Timing is Everything
Due to the high demand for services in the autumn and winter months, you may find that if you wait until this time to enquire about a new boiler, then no one will be available for the work for some time. Booking your boiler installation in advance can help avoid this potentially stressful situation. Having to deal with waiting for a boiler to be installed is much easier if the sun is shining!
Festive Financial Demands
Another reason to try and avoid getting a new boiler in the winter is that you may also be trying to budget for the festive period in the lead-up to Christmas. You will want to be able to enjoy warm and cosy family time, without worrying about when your boiler will be fitted and whether or not the cost will affect your family finances at such an expensive time of year.
