When to get your boiler repaired?
Stop using your boiler and get it checked as soon as possible if:
- You see a yellow flame
- There are odd smells when the boiler is running
- You notice general wear and tear
- There’s leaking from the unit
- Radiators take a long time to heat up

An appealing option for homebuyers
If you’re moving home in Durham, you might think repairing your old boiler instead of replacing it is a good option but it’s still a gamble - it could break before any paperwork goes through causing delays & possible contract renegotiations.
A faulty or inefficient central heating system will be easily noticed on a survey by prospective buyers, so it’s always better to replace the boiler before putting your home on the market - covering the cost of an installation in the house price. This is equally paramount when renting, you’re more likely to attract & retain tenants with a reliable up-to-date boiler.
To keep your current boiler running efficiently, an annual service is the way to go - it’s like getting an MOT for your car.
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.
