Why The Best Time To Get A New Boiler Is Approaching

Here is a fun fact: With this year’s Easter in March, there is more chance of a white Easter than a white Christmas. It’s a reminder that the seasons don’t quite operate in quite as simple and neat a way as we think.

Even so, there is no doubt the next three months will turn out warmer than the previous three, even amid the variations of our capricious climate. Although the early weeks of the upcoming cricket season will feature players with two sweaters on many occasions, sunny weekend days spent in the garden or at the beach will not be too far away.

While many people’s attentions may indeed be turning to the sound of leather on willow, a flourishing flower bed, or finding the bucket and spade, there is still one indoor task you may want to consider – new boiler installation.

Ask any expert and they will all tell you the same thing – the summer months are the time to install a new boiler. The reasoning should be obvious; your boiler is there to provide heating and hot water when you need it and the greatest need is in the colder months. Anyone who has suffered a boiler breakdown in winter will know just how tough that can be to deal with.

Since you need to replace a boiler every 10-15 years, it may be time for you to do so, which means while the old one is being taken out and a new one fitted you will be without hot water. If you replace the boiler when the weather is nice and warm, that shouldn’t be so much of a problem. 

Indeed, the temporary disadvantage of not having warm water in summer is that much briefer because of a decision to have a new boiler fitted then. Engineers are less busy in summer because people are using their boilers less and thus breakdowns and consequent call-outs are less frequent, so you can get the whole business sorted faster.

For this reason, it is also cheaper to install a boiler in summer, as well as meaning you have planned ahead for the winter by ensuring that when the cold weather comes around again, you have a more efficient heating source to keep bills down and a far lower risk of a breakdown that will leave you with a cold house and an expensive emergency call-out.

Of course, come the winter there will be more pressure on any boiler. Extreme cold weather can stop it from working. For that reason, it is important to to take steps to minimise the risk of this happening and there are several things you can do

Apart from servicing or replacing boilers, this list includes steps like insulating the pipes and bleeding the radiators. But these are things you could do in summer alongside having your boiler replaced. That would amount to a thorough renewal of your boiler apparatus and associated fixtures, fittings and appliances.

If you need to replace your boiler soon, you will find doing it in summer will save you both money and a whole load of hassle.
