When we are living in the warmer months, we rarely consider our heating systems as they are not regularly used. However, when the winter draws in and the temperature drops, the boiler becomes key to creating a warm, comfy home.
Boilers are one of the most used appliances in Britain. Our reliance on them means when they break down it can be frustrating and inconvenient for any homeowner. Instead of waiting for the winter to settle in and your dependence on your boiler becomes paramount, consider replacing your boiler in the summer.
The benefits for choosing to service or replace your boiler during the warmer months are numerous for both homeowner and installer. Typically, we (heating engineers) are often busiest during the winter due to boiler breakdowns as people start using them more frequently when temperatures drop. This greater availability means you can choose an installation time to suit you.
A boiler is a high price item which means there is never going to be a particularly great time to have to buy a replacement. However you can reduce hassle and keep warm in the winter by choosing the summer for a boiler replacement.
Here are some of the top benefits for upgrading your boiler in the summer:
You can stay warm
A boiler replacement on average can take between 1-3 days but can take even longer if you are considering a complete overhaul of your central heating system. Not being able to rely on your boiler during winter isn’t convenient for any homeowner, especially if it involves an unexpected breakdown. A failure in the functioning of your boiler could cause further damage to the heating system such as frozen pipes.
Having work done in summer means you can stay warm and not face so much disruption to daily life. Facing a couple of days with no central heating is easily tolerated with sunshine and warmer temperatures.
Gives you time to research
Having a new boiler installed in the summer offers you the leisure to take your time in researching brands and finding the most suitable alternative. As accredited Worcester boiler installers, we recommend you get a Worcester heating system.
Less likely to experience a winter breakdown
Replacing or servicing your boiler in the summer means you will be less likely to experience a breakdown when you most need it.
Homeowners become more reliant on their heating systems in winter and this increased demand causes the number of breakdowns to rise. Problems with your boiler in the middle of winter could mean an emergency callout and a more expensive service.
Modern boilers are more efficient
Getting a new boiler before winter could encourage a decrease in your energy bills. Modern heating systems run at a much greater efficiency than an outdated boiler.
