What if my boiler cannot be repaired?
If your boiler can’t be repaired, meaning your boiler is beyond repairable. We will advise that your boiler is no longer worth repairing and that it is now time to upgrade to a better, more efficient one.
It’s not all bad news though, we will help you choose the right boiler for your home. It’s time to save money on your energy bills with a new boiler.
One of the reasons why your boiler might not be worth repairing, is that your boiler might be over 15 years old and many boiler manufacturers discontinue parts after this time.
If your boiler is new (the last 3 years) and your boiler has just broken down, you need to ask yourself:
Have I had my boiler serviced?
If the answer is no, then most likely that could be the reason.
