Can't afford a new boiler

It's an extremely trying situation: you desperately need a new boiler, but you simply cannot afford it. Many people find themselves in this situation, which probably isn't surprising given how much it costs to pay for a new boiler upfront.

Here at ImpraGas, however, we strongly believe that everyone has a right to be warm in their own home. We have plenty of options available to accommodate those who might not be able to afford a new boiler - visit our Boiler Finance page or read on to learn more.

Boiler Finance Options

Spread the cost and pay as you save

With no deposit required, our spread the cost and pay as you save option will give you the opportunity to pay for your boiler in affordable monthly instalments over the course of 3, 5 or 10 years. This option is ideal for those who will not be able to purchase their boiler in full now or in the near future.

Buy now, pay nothing for 12 months

If you cannot afford to buy your new boiler right now, but you will have the means to do so in 12 months, then this is probably the best option for you. This plan allows you to pay off the sum of your boiler at any time within the 12-month period - you do not necessarily have to wait the full year. No deposit is required with this option either.

Interest-free for 12 months

If you would prefer to just spread the cost of the boiler across 12 months without having to pay any interest, you may be best-suited to an interest-free for 12 months finance plan. Like the 'buy now, pay later' plan above, this plan does not require a deposit.

How does boiler finance work?

Though it may seem a little overwhelming, getting a new boiler on finance is actually fairly straightforward. We have plenty of customers who use our finance plans when they can't afford to buy a boiler outright, and we do everything we can to make the process as simple as possible. We value our relationships with our clients, and we want you to keep warm all year 'round!

Boiler finance works by allowing you to have your boiler installed now and pay for it over a set period of time. This period can be as much as 10 years, reducing your payment to as little as £7 a month depending on the boiler you choose.

On most finance options, apart from our interest-free for 12 months option, you will need to pay interest for borrowing the money. This will be at an APR representative variable of 9.9%.

Benefits of a new boiler

If your home's current boiler was installed years and years ago, there's a good chance you're missing out on all kinds of benefits afforded by recent improvements in boiler technology.

Depending on the manufacturer and model, a new boiler may come with any combination of the following perks:

  • Improved energy efficiency (saving you money on your heating bills)
  • Remote control (adjust your heating from anywhere in the house)
  • More user-friendly interface (makes it easier to change temperature, set on/off times, etc.)
  • Easier to find replacement parts (in the unlikely event of a breakdown)

Some modern boilers even run on 100% electricity, potentially eliminating your home's reliance on gas.

Will a new boiler make my house warmer?

If your new boiler is of a good quality then it should heat your home more efficiently, meaning that it will use less energy to achieve the same temperature. This means that, in theory, you should be able to make your home warmer without spending any extra money on your heating bills.

That said...if switching the heating on doesn't make your home warm enough right now, it may not solely be your old boiler's fault. Here are some other possible explanations:

  • Poor Insulation - If your home is poorly insulated, heat will be lost more quickly, and this can make it very difficult to reach a comfortable temperature during the colder months.

  • Radiator Issues - If your central heating system works fine but one individual radiator isn't getting hot, this means that there is probably an issue with your radiator, not the boiler. You may need to bleed the radiator (to remove trapped air) or clean out the inside to get rid of any grime and sludge.

Will a new boiler improve my water pressure?

If you've been experiencing poor water pressure in your showers / taps of late, you may be wondering if replacing your boiler is the solution.

However, low pressure usually isn't the fault of your boiler. More likely causes include:

  • Stop valve not fully open (turn your stop valve anti-clockwise to make sure it's completely open)

  • Frozen or burst pipes

  • Other issues with your home's plumbing (a qualified plumber should be able to diagnose these issues)

  • Incidents in your local area (check with your water supplier to see if anything is affecting your area's supply)
