When to get your boiler repaired?
Stop using your boiler and get it checked as soon as possible if:
- You see a yellow flame

An appealing option for homebuyers
If you’re moving home in the North East, you might think repairing your old boiler is a good option but it’s still a gamble, it could break before any paperwork goes through causing delays & possible contract renegotiations.
An inefficient central heating system is likely to be picked up on a survey by prospective buyers so it’s better to replace it before you put the house on the market and cover the installation cost in your house price. Similarly, with renting, you’re more likely to attract and retain tenants with a reliable up-to-date boiler.
If you want to keep your boiler in tip-top condition for longer, an annual service is the way to go - it’s like getting an MOT for your car.
The Boiler Plan guarantee
If your boiler's on the brink of breaking then we'd recommend purchasing a Worcester Bosch or Ideal system and you'll automatically earn the Boiler Plan Guarantee, as well as an up to 10 year warranty.
In the unlikely event that something should go wrong, our Boiler Plan Guarantee will cover you for any repairs, just get in touch with us and within 48 hours of a call-out we'll have your boiler up and running again.
Our promise to you, if we can't repair your boiler we'll replace it 100% free of charge.Terms and conditions apply
Can an old boiler be repaired?
Yes, an old boiler can absolutely be repaired - the only downside is the price.
The cost of fixing it depends on what the issue is and if you need a spare part. For a 10-year-old unit, it's generally harder to come by high-quality parts, which means finding & buying them can cost a lot more.
We recommend replacing your boiler when it's 10-15 years old, as the cost of repairs will only ever increase over time.
We offer brand new A-rated energy-efficient boilers at an incredibly affordable price - feel free to get an instant online quote that's personalised for you and your home.
We recommend replacing your boiler when it's over 10-15 years old, as the cost of repairs for an old boiler will only increase over time. But, it all depends on how old, efficient and reliable your current boiler is.
We've discussed this in detail on our repair or replace advice guide.
Boilers are generally great are their job but like us, they do have off days which can cause an array of issues such as leaking or dripping, low boiler pressure or no heating/hot water. We've compiled a list of the most common boiler faults and information about them.
No, you need to be Gas Safe Registered to legally work on gas appliances.
There are small fixes you can do to your boiler, such as topping up the boiler pressure but any major fixes should be left with the professionals - if you're not qualified and work with gas you could cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
If your boiler is broken or needs to be repaired then a boiler service will only highlight that fact. We'd always recommend having your boiler fixed before you even think about getting a boiler service.
