Signs you need to replace your boiler

There are often a few signs that you can look out for which indicate that it is time to replace your existing boiler.

Here are five signs that you may be experiencing, which means you need a new boiler installed. 

1. Frozen Pipes 

During the winter, condensation tends to gather in your pipes causing it to freeze and get blocked. This blockage then causes your boiler to shut down completely, leaving you without any heating or hot water. Frozen pipes are also a sign that your boiler is not installed as properly as it could be. 

2. Unsual Sounds

If you are hearing any banging or popping noises coming from your boiler, it could mean that there is a build up of limescale or corrosion inside your boiler. Older boilers are known to experience this more which is why they usually have hot-spots where it does not use the heat evenly. 

4. Boiler Keeps Getting Turned Off

It can be frustrating when your boiler starts to turn off by itself, the cause of this is usually when your thermostat is not working as well as it used to. This could be because there may be underlying issues with your boiler that need attending to. 

5. No Hot Water 

Low water levels often indicate that certain components in your boiler are not working as effectively as they used to and it might be time to replace your boiler with a newer one.
