New Boiler vs Getting it Repaired

Boiler Repair Cardiff was one of the most searched online term in Wales.  People don’t often give much thought to their central heating systems.  We just expect to turn them on and tah-dah, they work, heating up our homes and supplying us with hot water.  At the time of writing this post, we have had the worse winter UK has seen in many years.  With temperatures in the minus more often during the months of February-March 2018.  People will be using their boilers more in this cold British weather.  Unfortunately, they can be an expensive inconvenience even at the best of times.  What’s even more unfortunate is that more boilers tend to break down in the colder months, because they’ve been inactive over the spring/summer and then they’re supposed to come back to life in autumn/winter but that isn’t always the case.  We expect them to come back to life from dormancy and work like nothing happened.  In most cases, boilers break down when they’re switched on, especially if they haven’t been annually serviced in a long time to preserve manufacturer’s warranty.

We want people to stay warm and let everybody know that the cost of getting boiler repair Cardiff rather than getting a brand new one installed, because when a boiler reaches a certain age, then they’re more likely to break down, even if they have previously been repaired.  In fact we’ve known them to break down more often after their first repair.

Boiler Repair Cardiff – Common Faults

If you’ve had a broken boiler before, then you may know some of the faults that come with them:

  • Water not heating up to a high enough temperature to wash comfortably, or perhaps not even warming up at all.
  • Boiler leaking or dripping.
  • Hearing strange banging noises, whistling, or gurgling sounds coming from your boiler.
  • Pilot light has gone out.
  • Water temperature is alright but the pressure is dreadful, just a dribble coming out of the tap, or like having a shower from the leftover water on a tree.

With Boilerhut you could get a new boiler installed within a couple of days.  We also have attractive finance options, along with 0% interest payment plans over shorter term, and can agree a monthly repayment amount at an amount to suit your budget.  Or if you are in receipt of certain benefits, you could qualify for a free boiler grant, where the cost of a full boiler installation is covered under the ECO scheme from the UK government either in full, or part-funding is provided depending on the size and type of your property.

We checked the prices for getting a new boiler installed with British gas and found that it could cost between £2700 and £2900, and they charge £110 as a call out fee .

Then we looked at getting a boiler repair Cardiff with a local plumber and their call out charge is roughly £50, and the parts and labour cost would be around £370.  So, this seems better than getting a new one from British Gas, because it’s cheaper up front, but then it’ll only need boiler repair Cardiff again and will turn out to be false economy.
