Ten reasons why you might need a new boiler from Boiler Central:
Having a new boiler installed in your home isn’t a decision that homeowners take lightly. But if you did need a new boiler, you’re in safe hands with Boiler Central.
Here are some reasons why it makes sense to consider getting a new boiler installed in your home:
1. Your current boiler is more than ten years old
For the most part, boilers tend to last around ten years before needing replacement. Even if you have yours serviced each year, you’ll find that parts for it will be hard to find. Plus, it’s not unusual for boilers to become less efficient over time.
2. You have to keep getting it repaired
Boilers require little maintenance by homeowners and only need an annual service. If you’re spending a lot of money fixing things that break on it each year, it’s time to think about getting a new combi boiler.
3. Heating and hot water supplies always get interrupted
Are you finding that you need to rely on electric heaters and kettles for your heating and hot water needs? If so, it’s time to get a new boiler installed in your home.
4. Your boiler keeps going on strike by shutting itself down
You know there’s a serious problem when your boiler keeps shutting down regularly. The cause can be down to anything from a faulty pump through to low-pressure issues.
5. Your boiler sounds like it’s about to blow up
Have you started hearing strange gurgling or banging noises from your boiler? As you’ll have gathered, it shouldn’t be making those sounds!
6. Your boiler keeps leaking
As a boiler ages, it can develop problems like corrosion and internal limescale buildup. When those issues occur, it will eventually cause external water leaks. In some cases, it’s more cost-effective to replace the boiler rather than repair it.
7. Your radiators are only lukewarm to the touch
The weather is getting colder, and you need to put your central heating system on each day. But your home still feels cold! If your radiators don’t feel hot, it can be a sign that your boiler isn’t doing its job of heating the water correctly.
8. The pilot light in your boiler keeps going out
Yes, it’s easy to reignite your boiler’s pilot light. The thing is, a modern and maintained boiler shouldn’t need constant pilot light reignition. The only time you would need to do that is if your gas supply got interrupted. If your pilot light keeps going out, but your gas connection is okay, it’s time to consider getting a new boiler.
9. Your boiler doesn’t look like everyone else’s boilers
Does your boiler look like a strange steampunk contraption? If so, you likely have an outdated boiler. One that’s most likely inefficient and costing a lot to operate. Now’s a good time to consider upgrading to an energy-efficient combi boiler!
10. Your boiler makes too much noise
A modern, energy-efficient boiler should make little to no noise during regular operation. If you hear a lot of banging or clicking noises, it’s probably ready for the scrap heap!
The benefits of boiler replacement with A Rated Boilers:
For many people with an old or faulty boiler, upgrading to a new model can seem like the difference between night and day! Did you know there are many benefits to getting a new boiler installed by Boiler Central?
Arguably one of the most significant advantages of having a new boiler fitted is the cost savings. Old, inefficient boilers use a lot more energy, and so will cause your energy bills to spike as time goes on. New boilers only use the energy they need to operate, and they do so in a highly efficient manner.
Another welcome benefit to new boiler installations is that you’ve got more control. These days, boilers with smart thermostats mean you can conveniently control your home’s heat and hot water even if you are several hundred miles away from home! You can create customised heating schedules and manage them from your smartphone.
Many homeowners also find that their existing boilers take up much-needed space. The good news is that today’s modern boilers are smaller and compact, leaving you with extra space to utilise in your home.
The environmental impact that we have on our planet is a cause for concern for more homeowners each year. Today’s modern boilers have excellent energy efficiency properties. As such, you can be sure that your home’s carbon footprint will be low.
Last, but not least, having a new boiler installed isn’t as expensive as you might have thought. It might surprise you to learn that a new boiler in your home won’t cost as much as you first assumed! Our boiler prices are on par with the lowest in the UK. Buying a new boiler is no longer a huge expense.

Which type of boiler do you need for the heart of your home?
In the UK, you’ve got a choice of boiler types that you can have installed in your home.
Combi (combination) boilers are the most common type and get installed in 70% of all homes. They are compact units that provide all your heating and hot water needs. Plus, you don’t need a separate hot water (immersion) storage tank. Combi boilers usually run on natural gas piped to your home. In some cases, such as with static caravans, they can run on LPG supplied in large gas cylinders.
For homes that are in rural areas, oil boilers are usually fitted. They require a separate tank that you’ll need to have refilled with heating oil every so often.
Some people have conventional gas boilers fitted. They come with separate hot and cold water storage tanks. Such boilers are ideal for older properties and those with a high demand for hot water — for instance, large homes with several bathrooms.
Another option for large homes or those with a very high demand for hot water is system boilers. They are similar to conventional boilers, but take up less installation space. Also, they feature a high-pressure system. In a nutshell, this means there is no drop in hot water flow if more than one tap gets opened.
What are the best combi boilers?
It’s no secret that there’s a vast choice of boiler brands on the market these days. Here’s a quick run-through of the most commonly installed boilers in UK homes:
