quite simply, it’s reaching the end of its useful life.
If your boiler is more than 10 years old,
it, therefore, might be time to upgrade to a new model.
A modern high-efficiency boiler, as well as being more reliable and
quieter in operation can shave as much as 35% off your fuel bills.
Many boiler breakdowns are caused by something within the system
itself (i.e. the pipes and radiators connected to the boiler),
usually dirt sludge or air.
Air can stop the water within the system from circulating properly, while dirt sludge can foul parts within the boiler itself. For this reason, manufacturers always recommend a central heating system is flushed before fitting a new boiler, and a filter is then fitted to protect the boiler from any dirt sludge that might then build up within the system over time.
Dependent on the size of the system, the age of the system, location and quality of the gas safe engineer, the cost of a power flush usually ranges from circa £350 to £650.
