Is It Time To Have A New Boiler Installed?
Determining whether it’s time for a new boiler depends on several factors. Here are some indications that you might need to consider replacing your Boiler:
Age of the Boiler
Most Boilers have a lifespan of 10-15 years. If your Boiler is approaching or has surpassed this age, consider a replacement, especially if you’re experiencing regular issues.
Increasing Energy Bills
If your energy bills are rising and your usage has stayed the same, it might be a sign that your Boiler is losing efficiency.
Boilers lose efficiency as they age. Over the years, wear and tear on the internal components can lead to decreased performance. For instance, older Boilers might not burn fuel as cleanly as when they were new, leading to more waste and higher energy costs.
Old Boilers can waste up to 45% of fuel burnt (55% efficiency), and new condensing Boilers run at between 90-99% efficiency. The increased energy efficiency of a new Boiler lowers your carbon footprint.
For several reasons, replacing an old boiler that presents frequent issues can be a wise decision.
Boilers with issues such as leaking, the pilot light going out, or making strange noises will eventually break down, most likely in winter when it’s working at its hardest and when you need it the most.
While repairs can be undertaken, obtaining the required parts for the Boiler is only sometimes possible.
Recurrent repairs lead to mounting costs over time, possibly surpassing the initial investment required for a new Boiler.
Furthermore, old Boilers, especially those not meeting current safety standards, can pose safety risks such as gas or carbon monoxide leaks.
Types Of Boiler Installations
We can replace your existing Boiler with a new Boiler of the same type or convert your central heating system to accept a different type of Boiler, which may suit you better if your heating or hot water usage has changed since your last Boiler installation.
It’s more typical for homeowners to replace their Boilers than to install entirely new systems. After all, the core of central heating, including radiators, pipes, controls, and more often outlives the Boiler itself.
We can swap out your outdated Boiler and install a modern one with your existing setup. We’ve got you covered if certain parts need replacing, whether it’s a new pump or modern smart controls.
First-Time Boiler Setups
For those with newly built properties, our skilled engineers will select the best Boiler and design and build the optimal central heating system tailored for your space, ensuring the best possible heating and energy efficiency.
Expanding Your Space?
For homeowners adding an extension, it’s essential to think about heating. Whether you’re considering radiators or underfloor heating for the new area, we can extend your current system to suit the enlarged space and install a new Boiler to power the system.
The Boilers We Install
At TM Hughes & Son, we exclusively fit condensing Boilers. When fuel burns, there’s waste. This waste usually goes out through the flue, protecting you from harmful carbon dioxide emissions.
Traditional Boilers let this waste fuel escape. But then along came the condensing Boiler. This ingenious design harnesses heat from those escaping gases to warm water. In simple terms, condensing Boilers recycle and make the most of what used to be waste, making them far more efficient than their predecessors.
Heating technology has evolved, with modern condensers becoming increasingly effective.
Since 2005, UK regulations mandate that all new Boilers installed in homes must be of the condensing variety, primarily for their eco-friendly benefits.
The savings you’ll see on your heating bills when installing a new condensing Boiler will quickly offset the initial investment.
Condensing Boilers fall into different types. We install Combination, System, and Regular/Heat-Only Boilers on Gas, Electricity, Oil or LPG.
A ‘Combi Boiler’ is popular today, especially for smaller homes. This is the shortened form of ‘combination Boiler.’
Combi Boilers don’t need a separate loft water tank or cylinder. This makes the setup quicker and, typically, more affordable than other Boiler types.
When you need hot water, turn on the tap. The combi Boiler quickly heats water directly as it flows.
However, it does come with a minor disadvantage. If the Boiler malfunctions, you won’t have any stored hot water backup. But don’t worry too much. Modern combi Boilers have a strong track record for reliability.
For smaller home owners looking to replace an old Boiler, a combi might be an energy-saving option that clears up some household space.
System Boilers efficiently heat water for both your taps and heating units. They store the hot water in a special pressurised cylinder, ensuring you can enjoy a hot shower or wash your hands whenever you like.
A system Boiler could be ideal if your home has multiple bathrooms, allowing several hot taps to run simultaneously.
While they don’t heat water instantly like combi Boilers, a correctly set system Boiler ensures you won’t run out of hot water. If, by chance, the Boiler breaks down, the pressurised cylinder doubles as an immersion heater, so you’ll still have a hot water supply.
You’ll need storage space for the water cylinder. And while a system Boiler might take up slightly more room than its combi counterpart, you won’t need additional tanks up in the loft, unlike regular Boilers.
You’ll experience consistently good water pressure since the system operates without relying on gravity. A system Boiler could be the perfect fit if you live in a medium-sized home with 3-4 bedrooms.
Ideal for spacious homes, regular Boilers store a generous amount of hot water, ensuring multiple showers and taps can operate simultaneously.
Regular Boilers use a vented cylinder, which is filled by water tanks situated in the loft. This stored water naturally flows to your showers and taps, thanks to gravity.
Installing regular Boilers is more time-consuming since they have multiple components. Typically, they’re a top pick for larger homes with four or more bedrooms or those already equipped with a regular Boiler and heating setup.
All the above Boilers are available in various sizes.
The size of the Boiler directly affects its output and flow rate, ability to efficiently heat your radiators and provide hot water throughout your home.
Choosing the right Boiler size is important:
- It will only be sufficient for your heating and water needs if it’s bigger.
- If it’s too large, you’ll use excess energy, costing you more to run.
Here’s a quick breakdown of Boiler sizes:
- Small homes with up to 10 radiators: 24-27 kW
- Medium homes with up to 15 radiators: 28-32 kW
- Large households with more than 15 radiators: 35-42 kW
Our engineers will ensure the correct size Boiler is fitted, providing optimal heating and energy efficiency for your home.
