A boiler should last you in the region of 15 years. However, this will depend on a number of factors, including how well it has been maintained and whether you’ve had it serviced and checked regularly. However, the basic reality is that the older a boiler is, the harder it will be working to heat your home. It will be less efficient and cost you more.

Boiler prices vary and this can leave you feeling bewildered and confused about what you need, and why you need it. It’s therefore important to have reputable boiler engineers, such as Ecosafe, who are local to your area in Dorset, and committed to offering you their expertise and advice without a hefty price tag.
However, with modern boilers, a good general rule of thumb is that you get what you pay for. This needs to be looked at on two levels: the initial cost of the boiler and its installation, and then also the after-care service. We urge you to consider both as it is the after-care that ensures your boiler remains efficient for its entire lifetime and therefore helps to keep your energy bills down, as well as ensuring you don’t need to replace it again too soon.
It’s a fool’s mission to save money in the short term by opting to do without a care service plan. Emergency boiler repairs are always more expensive than those covered under a care service plan, and can often be prevented through regular servicing.
Therefore, a cheaper boiler tends to cost more to maintain, and will also be less efficient to run.
There are a range of different boiler manufacturers producing different types of boilers. At Ecosafe we only supply Worcester Bosch boilers and Vaillant boilers. We believe these represent the best value for money, efficiency, and reliability and as such we’re happy to back all of these boilers that our Gas Safe engineers install with our 10 year boiler guarantee.
We strongly recommend that you shouldn’t seek cost-savings with the boiler itself. While there is a difference in cost between a budget boiler and a high-specification boiler of approximately £400, these differences soon become insignificant when you factor in energy bill costs, length of life, and maintenance costs.
In terms of installation, this is really dependent on the size of your property and what other heating and plumbing work are needed, as well as choosing a reputable local firm. For example, if your current gas pipe is too small and needs to be re-laid then this will add to installation costs, or if there are additional building works such as bricking up an old flue or new kitchen installation.
Therefore, if you choose a reputable installer such as Ecosafe then you know you’ll be getting a fair installation price. What’s more, many people including pensioners and landlords are eligible for grants to help towards the boiler cost and installation. Furthermore, all Ecosafe boilers are available on 0% finance to help spread the cost.
