How To Know If Your Boiler Needs Replacing

Posted on by Heating Economy

Replacing your boiler is a task that you hope will never come, unfortunately it is a necessary job that needs to be done. There are ways to extend the life of a boiler such as regular servicing; however there are some signs that indicate your boiler needs to be replaced sooner rather than later.

Strange Noises

If your boiler is making strange noises such as a banging or popping noise, it could be due to a problem called kettling. This is caused by a limescale build up, causing oxygen bubbles on the surface of the heat exchanger. If caught early it may be something that can be fixed, however if left, the damage may be irreversible and a new boiler may be needed.


Where your boiler is leaking from will determine if the damage is repairable or not. It is always best to get a professional to take a look at it for safety reasons. It could be something simple, such as tightening or replacing parts, however if it’s a more serious issue it may be more cost effective to replace it.

Hot and Cold Water

If your boiler is producing both hot and cold water it may be a sign that it needs servicing. It could be due to a number of reasons but without an expert opinion it is difficult to come to a conclusion in regards to what the problem could be.

High Energy Bills

If your energy bills seem quite high you would probably benefit from replacing your boiler. The conversion rate for newer boilers could help save you a third on your energy bills. This is due to the previous wasted energy now heating your home.
