How long does a boiler last?

Have you recently purchased a  new boiler? Or have you had the same one for a few years? You must be wondering how long a typical boiler lasts, so you can get an idea of how long you can expect your boiler to carry on working. 

What is the lifespan of a combi boiler?

Combi boilers last around 15 years, or even longer if you obtain a high-quality model and maintain it regularly. We recommend paying close attention to the warranties provided with your new combi boiler, and if feasible, consider purchasing an extended warranty for further peace of mind.

What is the lifespan of a system or a conventional boiler?

The lifespan of this type of boiler is very similar to a combi boiler. Being proactive and caring for your boiler can help increase its lifespan, and we list a few of these for you below.

How do I increase my boiler's life expectancy?

Get it annually serviced 

When you get your boiler serviced, the heating engineer can determine if it has any issues that need fixing. This not only prevents your boiler from completely breaking down and needing a new replacement, but it also helps you save money on unexpected repair and installation costs. 

Bleeding radiators

Bleeding your radiators once a year is enough to help your central heating system run more smoothly. This allows your radiators to release any trapped air and heat up efficiently. 

Prevent corrosion

All you have to do to prevent corrosion inside your heating system is to introduce an inhibitor solution. This chemical will eradicate any corrosion issues that your boiler may have. Although this is a quick solution, don't rush into it; instead, get an expert to perform it for you since they'll be experienced with dealing with the chemical securely.
