5 Tips To Extend Boiler Life

Extending your Boiler Life

Replacing your boiler can be a costly and time-consuming process. However, there are some simple steps you can take to help prolong the life of your current boiler and avoid having to replace it prematurely. In this article, we will explore five tips for extending the life of your boiler.

At NW Boilers, our gas engineers are fully insured on all boiler installation and repair jobs throughout the Northwest of England. We are all gas safe registered and know the importance of boilers in your home or workplace.

Turn off your boiler when it's not in use

One of the simplest ways to prolong the life of your boiler is to turn it off when it’s not in use. 

This might seem like common sense, but many people forget to do this or simply don’t realize how much energy they’re wasting by leaving their boiler on standby.

If you’re not going to be using your boiler for a few weeks for months because you are out travelling or on a holiday or business trip etc, switching off your boiler can help extend your boiler’s life and save you money buying a new boiler.

Clean the condenser coils annually to remove dust and debris

The condenser coils are one of the most important parts of your boiler, and it’s important to keep them clean to ensure efficient and safe operation. The coils can become clogged with dust and debris over time, which can lead to a number of problems.

Some of the most common problems caused by dirty condenser coils include:

To avoid these problems, it’s important to clean the condenser coils at least annually. This can be done using a vacuum cleaner or a brush. Make sure you remove all of the dust and debris from the coils to avoid a future boiler repair.

Install a humidifier to protect your boiler from rusting out

Installing a humidifier is a great way to protect your boiler from rusting out. 

A humidifier will help to keep the moisture levels in your home or office at a consistent level, which will help to prevent the formation of rust on your boiler.

If you live in a dry climate, or if you have an older boiler that’s prone to rusting, installing a humidifier is a good way to protect your investment.

Keep the area near your boiler clear of obstacles

It’s important to keep the area around your boiler clear of obstructions so that air can circulate freely and the boiler can operate safely and efficiently.

Any type of obstruction can lead to overheating and other problems.

Make sure you keep the area around your boiler clear of furniture, boxes, and other items to ensure that it can operate safely and efficiently.

If you’re having any problems with your current boiler, or if you need a new boiler installed, please don’t hesitate to contact the experts at NW Boilers.

Get Your Boiler Serviced

Regular boiler servicing is one of the most important things you can do to prolong the life of your boiler and ensure safe and efficient operation. 

A boiler service includes a comprehensive safety check to make sure your boiler is operating safely and effectively.

If you’re having any problems with your boiler, or if you’re not sure whether your boiler is in need of a service, please don’t hesitate to contact the experts at NW Boilers.

Bleed Your Radiators

One of the best ways to improve the efficiency of your radiators is to bleed them regularly. Bleeding your radiators removes any trapped air that may be causing them to operate inefficiently.

To bleed your radiators, you’ll need a radiator key and a bucket. Shut off the boiler and the water supply, then locate the bleed valve on your radiators. Open the valve and let the air escape until water begins to flow from the valve. Close the valve and repeat on all of your radiators.

Once you’ve bled your radiators, turn on the boiler and the water supply and check for any leaks. If there are any leaks, fix them immediately.

Conclusion

To ensure that your boiler lasts as long as possible, it’s important to take care of the condenser coils and humidifier regularly.

Beyond those maintenance tasks, there are a few other things you can do to extend the life of your current boiler: keep the area around it clear from obstructions; bleed radiators regularly; install a humidifier if you live in a dry climate.

If you’re having any problems with your boiler, or if you need a new boiler installed, please don’t hesitate to contact the experts at NW Boilers.
