Types of boilers

There are three types of boilers, combi, system and heat only. Combi boilers are the latest boilers that are supported by a single small unit which can be fitted in compact spaces. These boilers are suitable for small homes or houses with one bathroom. 

System and heat-only boilers on the other hand need a separate cylinder to support them and are suitable for bigger houses. Here, at Castle Heating Kent we install all types of boilers.

Why is Boiler Installation Necessary?

To ensure the convenience and effectiveness of your home's heating system, boiler installation in Kent is a critical step. This is why it's essential:

Enhancing Energy Efficiency

Older boilers typically use less energy, which results in higher energy costs. Installing a new, energy-efficient boiler can assist the environment by reducing carbon emissions while also considerably lowering your heating costs.

Increased Comfort at Home

Your home will remain cosy and warm all year long, even during the chilly Kent winters, thanks to a modern boiler's constant and dependable heating.

Enhanced Safety

Risks to safety might arise from outdated boilers, such as leakage of carbon monoxide. Modern safety features included in newer versions provide you and your family peace of mind.

Lower Repair Prices

Older boilers are more likely to break down and need repairs more frequently, which will cost you time and money. You can avoid the burden of ongoing maintenance and repair costs by installing a new boiler.

Environmentally Friendly

Reduce your carbon impact by switching to a more modern boiler. The magnificent natural surroundings around Kent are preserved thanks to the more environmentally friendly design of newer models, which also emit fewer emissions.

Do I need to repair or replace my boiler?

If your boiler is having problems, you might be debating whether it needs to be repaired or completely replaced. Making the appropriate choice is essential to the safety and effectiveness of your home's heating system. Let's look at when it makes the most sense to fix or replace your boiler.

When to Consider Boiler Repairs:

Age of the Boiler

If your boiler is relatively recent (less than 10 years old) and has received good maintenance, fixing particular problems may be a cost-effective solution.

Minor Problems

Repairs are typically sufficient for minor issues like a broken thermostat, a leaking pipe, or a worn-out valve.

Budget restraints

If you have a limited budget and the cost of repair is much less than the cost of a new boiler, fixing it can be the better option.

Regular Maintenance

If your boiler has a history of routine maintenance and hasn't experienced any serious problems, it may still provide dependable service for several more years.

When to Consider Boiler Replacement:

Frequent Failures

Purchasing a new, more durable boiler may be more cost-effective if your boiler is constantly failing and requiring pricey repairs.


The average lifespan of a boiler is 10 to 15 years. It's a good idea to think about replacing your boiler if it is getting close to this age range and having issues, especially with the newer, more energy-efficient ones that are currently available.

Rising Energy Bills

A less efficient boiler may result in an increase in energy costs. Long-term financial savings may result from replacing it with a more energy-efficient model.

Safety Issues

It's critical to put safety first and repair your boiler right away if it has safety issues, such as carbon monoxide leaks or persistent pilot light problems.

Lack of Replacement Parts

Older boilers could have difficult or pricey to repair obsolete parts. Replacement is a more realistic option because this can extend repair periods and raise costs.
