Why summer is the best time to replace your boiler
Summer might not seem like the most obvious time of year to have your boiler replaced but it can actually be the most convenient! From engineers having more availability to keeping warm whilst the work is carried out, we took a look at the reasons why you might want to get your boiler replaced before winter starts to creep in…
Boiler Engineers are less busy in the summer
Winter sees some of the busiest months for heating engineers, who are not only installing new boilers but also rushing out to fix breakdowns and frozen pipes. Take advantage of the quieter months, when you are more likely to get an appointment at a time to better suit your schedule.

You can keep warm whilst your boiler is replaced
Being without a boiler for any number of days in winter whilst a new one is fitted is certainly not ideal. Generally, a boiler replacement can take between 1 and 3 days – this can be even longer if you are having work done on the central heating system in your home. Not being able to rely on your boiler during this time can make life difficult, and you could even run the risk of frozen pipes if the weather is cold enough. By having the work done in the summer months, you should be able to stay warm and not face so much disruption to daily life.
You have plenty of time to pick out the perfect boiler
Many people end up rushing to have their boiler replaced in the winter, especially if it’s because it has broken down. By planning ahead and having your boiler installed in the summer you have time to research boiler types and brands to figure out which one is ideal for your needs. We have a handy article explaining the types of boilers you could consider and how much you could look to save.
You run less risk of a winter breakdown
If you wait until your boiler breaks down to replace it, you could end up facing a broken boiler in the middle of winter. This could mean calling out a plumber for emergency work at a less convenient time and even paying a lot more! By replacing your boiler in summer, or even just having it serviced, you run a far lower risk of a boiler breakdown over the colder months.
You will be ready to start saving on winter bills
If the thought of your winter heating bills makes you dread the chilly season, consider having your boiler replaced beforehand to help to reduce them. Many modern boilers will save you money through being far more efficient. The new style of condensing boilers are a popular choice in British households and could save you up to £305 year by recycling heat that would have been lost.
