Look Out for These Signs that it’s Already Time for Boiler Replacement

All modern homes have the infrastructure in place to run both cold and hot water throughout the house, connected via a series of piping networks that may exist within walls, floors and the roof. The average gas and electric hot water boilers are designed to run, and last, for between 10 to 15 years with proper maintenance, but needs replacing within 6 years based on use and brand.

It’s important for you to know the tell-tale signs of a hot water system that’s nearing the end of its life, the last thing you would want is the inability to have heated water running through your home due to a broken down boiler.

Rust and Corrosion

Rust and corrosion around the lining of the boiler and the valves is a big sign that it’s nearing the end of its life and needing replacement.

Discoloured Water

If your water is turning into an orange rust colour then you know it may be time for a replacement due to internal rust.


Another one of the biggest signs that a boiler needs replacing is leaking. If you’re noting leaking water, even just a few drips, around the lining of your boiler than you should certainly consider having it replaced.

The need to replace a hot water boiler is all part of owning a home. Keep in mind, however, that replacing a boiler on your own can lead to further problems with your entire hot water system. If you’re in need of a boilerreplacement, seek the services of a reputable plumbing company who specialise in hot water heating systems and solutions.
