Many people are reluctant to install a new central heating system in their home because of the costs involved. However, believe it or not, you could actually make significant savings by upgrading to a more efficient system.
Here we’ve shared some of the signs that it’s time to install a new central heating system in your home.
Your property doesn’t have central heating
The most obvious sign that you need a new central heating system is that your current property doesn’t have one. Perhaps you’ve just moved house or maybe you’ve just built a property. Either way, it makes sense to install a new central heating system to provide hot water and keep the property warm in the wintertime.
Your boiler is old and inefficient
Do you feel like you are paying over the odds for gas? Whilst most people complain that gas is too expensive, if you feel like you might be paying more than you need to, it could be down to an inefficient boiler.
If your boiler is quite old, it’s likely that it’s no longer running to maximum capacity. This means it won’t be producing gas as efficiently as it should be doing. Installing a new boiler will help you to save a significant amount of money through lower gas bills.
Your boiler is broken
When boilers get to a certain age, they tend to start to develop problems that can be pretty expensive to repair. When it comes to boiler repairs, you not only have to account for the cost of hiring a Gas Safe engineer but also any parts your boiler requires. If the boiler is old, it’s likely that the parts will be expensive and more difficult to find.
Many people find it works out cheaper (in the long run) to replace their boiler with a new central heating system. A new system is much less likely to fail and will also help you to save money by reducing your fuel bills.
Your central heating system lacks flexibility
Older central heating systems tend to lack flexibility, giving you limited control over the heating of your home and the temperature of your hot water. If you are looking to gain more control over these things, it is highly recommended that you have a new central heating system installed.
Newer central heating systems are designed to give homeowners more flexibility. They allow you to choose the temperature you would like your boiler to produce, so you can enjoy a comfortable home and hot water at just the right temperature.
Things to keep in mind when installing a new central heating system
If you are planning on having a new central heating system installed in your home, it is important to make sure a Gas Safe Registered engineer carries out the work. A Gas Safe engineer will have the skills, knowledge and experience to carry out the job safely and efficiently.
It is also a good idea to plan your central heating replacement for a time when you will not need to rely on your boiler to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. We recommend having your new system installed in the spring or summer if possible.
