The average boiler should last between 10-15 years before it needs replacing. This is great news if you’ve recently had a new boiler installed, not so much if your boiler is a little long in the tooth.
Your boiler is arguable one of the most important appliances in your home. It accounts for up to 60% of your energy bills in some cases. It’s therefore crucial that it’s working efficiently and effectively as possible.
How To Get The Most Out Your Boiler
Buying a reliable boiler, from a well known manufacturer is a great way of ensuring your boiler stays working for a long time. It also ensures that if things do go wrong, there will be parts available to repair the boiler.
Get An Annual Service
A yearly service is the best thing you can do to keep it functioning as effectively and efficiently as possible. An annual service will also keep the manufacturers warranty valid. They could prolong the life of your boiler as they provide an opportunity for any faults or issues to be identified and rectified before they worsen
Use a Qualified Gas Safe Engineer

Getting a qualified engineer to conduct the work at your home could provide you with peace of mind in knowing that the job’s been completed thoroughly and professionally. sing an unqualified person could result in damage to your heating system and if unsafe work is carried out the consequences could be incredibly dangerous.
