Signs your boiler might need replacing

When you have a boiler, the last thing that you want is to have it break down. A broken boiler can be an absolute nightmare, not only for your home but also for your wallet. Fortunately, some warning signs will tell you if your boiler might need replacing. If any of these signs apply to you, then it’s time to call a Gas Safe registered engineer and have them check out your system before disaster strikes!

A few signs to look out for

  • If you notice a water leak, this is one of the most apparent and most accessible warning signs that your boiler might need replacing. Many things can cause a leak, but it’s always best to have an expert take a look at it rather than try and fix yourself!
  • There are times when we don’t know what could cause something until after it happens, so if you feel like there has been some change in your system, then call someone over quickly just in case! For example, if your radiators aren’t heating up nearly as well as they used to or you hear strange noises coming from them, then this too could mean that your boiler needs new parts
  • It’s also essential to ensure that you have enough hot water for your family and maybe even an extra few guests! If the amount of hot water isn’t quite up to scratch, then it might just mean that your boiler requires replacing parts or even total replacement


There are many signs that your boiler might need replacing. However, if you have any of the problems listed above, then it’s time to call in a professional before disaster strikes!
