A well-functioning boiler is an essential part of many modern family homes, being your primary source of household heating and hot water. Other equipment you may be able to take chances with, but who wants to be caught short with no heating in the winter months? With good workmanship, your boiler is likely to last between 10-15 years, whereas with a shoddy job there’s no guarantee of lifespan. At No1PHD we pride ourselves on quality central heating service for our Southampton customers and boiler replacement is a core part of that.
As stated, a well installed and maintained boiler will last you for 10+ years. When you get nearer that point, though, it’s helpful to know the signs that your boiler may be getting old. Has it started making strange new noises, such as clunking or whistling? This doesn’t mean it has developed consciousness; rather it’s a sign of old age. Happens to all of us, but fortunately your old boiler can be replaced with a shiny new one. These noises may be caused by limescale that accumulates over time and can block the flow of water. Leakage is also common among older boilers. Ignoring these warning signs may lead to your boiler completely breaking down at an inopportune time, so it’s best to be safe and arrange a replacement as soon as possible.
There are different types of boiler to be aware of as you consider acquiring a replacement for your home. These include:
As you can see, there are positives and slight negatives to each of these options that are worth considering. Ultimately you should decide based on the needs of your household. But of course our Southampton central heating experts are on hand to advise you and are just a phone call away on, 01425 208031.

If you’re unsure whether you should make the jump to a new boiler now or take your chances until your old one breaks down further, rest assured there are additional benefits to upgrading. In general, boilers become less efficient as they age, using an increasing amount of energy to produce hot water over time. This in turn can cause slight increases in your heating bill. But with a more efficient newer model, you’ll instead notice a reduction. Consider technological advancement as well. Current boiler models can be Internet-compatible and let you control your heating via an app, which is something 10-15 year old boilers simply don’t have the capacity for.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
