Can your boiler be repaired rather than replaced?
It may be that your boiler can be repaired rather than being replaced. If you have an issue and your boiler is displaying a fault code, it should be fairly easy to diagnose the problem. Below, we have included the links to our fault code finders for popular boiler brands.
Is your boiler still under warranty?
If you have a boiler that is still fairly new, it could still be under warranty and the cost of the parts and labour to repair it could be covered.
To assist you, we have included the warranty lengths that the bestselling boiler manufacturers offer in the UK. It should be noted though that these manufacturers will have certain terms and conditions for their warranties. To ensure the warranty remains valid, they usually require that your boiler is serviced annually after installation.
If you believe your boiler is still under warranty, call the manufacturer to confirm before you decide on a new boiler.

Is your boiler out of warranty?
If your boiler is out of warranty, it’s worth considering whether repairing it is worthwhile
If your boiler has broken down before, its internal components could be getting towards the end of its life and your boiler could need subsequent repairs. The following could mean that replacing your boiler will be more cost-effective.
Your boiler age – Even if your boiler has run properly and efficiently for many years, nothing lasts forever and things break down over time. After serving you for all that time, the constant pressure and use have probably caused a lot of wear and tear, and even if it has not had problems up until it broke down, the sudden breakdown and emergency boiler repair might just be the tip of the iceberg, and the beginning of the end. If your boiler is at least 10-12 years old or more, it is likely to start costing you a lot in repairs.
Repair costs – You also have to factor in that repairs can cost a lot, particularly on older boilers. This is because if your boiler is older than 10-12 years, the parts are not likely to be as readily available. This may mean a headache in terms of money, and more importantly time, because you or your plumber may waste precious time looking for parts.
Energy efficiency – If your boiler is more than 12 years old, the chances are it’s a non-condensing boiler with highly worn down and corroded internal components, meaning it’s running at 50% to 60% efficiency. In monetary terms, this means you may be losing £30 to £40 per £100 spent on energy.
Things to consider
In the event of an emergency boiler breakdown, there are a number of things you should consider in the meantime between your boiler breaking down and us installing you a new one.
Whether you need to make alternative living arrangements
If you have a suspected gas or carbon monoxide leak, it’s crucial that you make alternative living arrangements until the issue is resolved and your new boiler is installed. This is because these gases are poisonous and will make your home uninhabitable.
If it’s not such a serious issue, it’s still important to consider how being without heating and hot water will affect you whilst you are without a boiler. Whilst we are able to install a boiler for you in as little as 24 hours, you may still need to make alternative living arrangements.
Is your home warm enough to live in?
This is particularly important if you have elderly relatives that live with you or young children. If you are without a boiler in the middle of winter, you may need to consider using electric heaters until your new boiler is installed.
