How often does a boiler need to be replaced?

A boiler is a key component of your home - if something goes wrong with it you may be left without heating and hot water, which can be a real nightmare.

Unfortunately, this always seems to happen when you least expect it, leaving you wishing you’d replaced it when it was still hanging in there. Here's some advice about how long the average boiler should last and how often you should replace the boiler in your home.

How long is a boiler supposed to last?

A good boiler should last up to 10-15 years with minimal issues, as long as you do what you should to keep it in good working condition. This starts from as soon as you receive your new boiler, which should be installed by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

A new boiler should be, at most, a once-in-a-decade investment, so you’ll want to make sure you're getting it right from day one. At ImpraGas, we offer a professional boiler installation service that ensures your boiler is installed to the highest standard. Our installations and inspections are only ever carried out by Gas Safe registered engineers who know exactly how to get the job done.

How often should I get my boiler serviced?

To make sure your boiler keeps performing well, it's vital to have your boiler serviced once a year. This annual servicing ensures that your boiler will run efficiently all year ‘round. Also, an annual service will often be a condition of your insurance policy and your boiler warranty agreement. 

 We offer a 10-year service plan with the boilers we install, which means that in the unlikely event of a breakdown, the manufacturer of your appliance will be out to assist you within 24 hours, at no extra cost! This is to ensure that your boiler lasts for its intended lifespan, if not longer.
