How do I know I need a new boiler?

Boilers are built to last. If they are serviced and maintained properly they can give up to 20 years good service, or even more, keeping you and your family safe and warm. 


But, here are a few tips to help you work out if you need a new boiler:

  • Your boiler is more than 9 years old.
  • You have a ‘G’ rated boiler.
  • Your home is not heating up as quickly as you expect.
  • Your home doesn’t seem as warm as you expect.
  • Your boiler is making some groaning or clanking noises.
  • The flame is not blue.
  • The radiators are hot at the bottom and cold at the top (or vice versa).
  • Some of your radiators are not working
  • You have to constantly top up the pressure.
  • Your water runs hot and then unexpectedly runs cold. 
  • And most obviously, your boiler is not actually working!


If you recognise any of the above symptoms - you may need to invest in a new boiler.  BTU's experienced customer service staff will be able to advise how best to progress. We would be delighted to arrange a FREE home survey to assess your boiler and heating system.
