Your local Plumber Herfordshire. If you need a plumber in St. Albans, please give us a call.Boiler Installation In Hertfordshire | Do you need a new boiler? We are often asked whether a homeowner needs a new boiler simply because their current boiler is over 10 years old, and they feel it should be replaced.
Just because an existing boiler is over 10 years old certainly doesn’t necessarily mean you have to do is install a new boiler. In fact, some boiler is that are over 10 years old often benefit by having cast iron heat exchangers (which means they are more robust), as well as fewer electronics which means less possibilities of your boiler going on the blink. Boiler Installation In St. Albans | How long can a boiler last?
We are also regularly asked how long a boiler can last for. Well, of course it depends on the make and model of the boiler and of course how often the boiler has been used in its lifetime. However, a lot of boilers last for many, many years without any issues. If they do need to be repaired, in most cases, St Albans plumbers are well equipped to fix the boiler with generic spare parts. It is ironic that with old boilers you can often fix any issues however with new boilers and the components come with them, there is certainly a limited life span.
Before having a boiler installed, it is worth asking the boiler installation engineer what make and model and suggest installing, and then googling to see the lifespan of that particular boiler. Boiler Installation In Hertfordshire | Combi Boilers
We also get asked whether homeowners should install ‘Combi’ boiler. A Combi boiler utilises condensing technology which recovers some of the surplus heat that derives flue gases which results in acidic liquid which has to be pipes away to a drain. The problem here is during cold weather these pipes (external) can freeze up which often causes the boiler to stop working. If we live in a country with constant cold weather we would recommend against Combi boilers, as often during the winter months we get a lot of callouts from homeowners who have Combi boilers which have stopped working.
Furthermore, Combi boilers rely very heavily on electronic circuitry. Any product that relies heavily on electronic circuitry will always have a limited lifespan. To have a Combi boiler last for more than five years is very rare. Should you have t replace certain parts of this boiler type, it will come at great expense. Call your local Experts today
