Boilers eventually reach the end of their economic lives
Parts may be no longer available (although we are often able to obtain parts that others cannot); the boiler may become too expensive to maintain or it may become inefficient to run. So boilers eventually wear out and need to be replaced.
But always bear in mind that we are particularly good at finding parts for old boilers, and have been around long enough (perhaps a sign of Matthews age!) to be experienced with older boiler and system problems. So, we’ll always repair instead of replacing if it makes sense.
When your boiler has reached the end of it’s life (and we can help you determine when this is) ask us to give you our unbiased advice on which boiler to fit. In some cases, this will involve changing the system. For example, many people now fit combination boilers to replace their previous boiler, cylinder and header tanks arrangement. But one solution does not fit all. In some cases the best solution may be to fit an unvented (‘Megaflow type’) cylinder in combination with a new Regular boiler. And in some cases, the present system, updated and more efficient, is still the best solution.
We have vast experience of all types of system so tap into our expertise – call us and we will discuss the options and the benefits of each.
It is also important to choose the right products. How reliable is the manufacturer? How good are particular products? How long is the warranty? (We can get longer warranties from some manufacturers than their standard warranty). Again, talk this through with us. We have no ties to any particular manufacturer and can therefore give unbiased advice. Just one thing is certain, however. Don’t fit a cheap boiler – you may well live to regret it!
We fit about 50 boilers per year, so benefit from our knowledge and talk to us before making any decisions.
We deal with many manufacturers….
