Whilst boiler efficiency, heating, and hot water might be high on your list of priorities in the winter, the summer is when you really need to be making a decision on when to replace your boiler. There are a number of reasons that it’s when the weather is warmest, that it’s most important to looking at changing your boiler. Find out more.

Replace your boiler in the summer to stay warm in the winter

Replacing a boilers isn’t a job that takes weeks, but it does take a period of time that is at least a day long. In warmer weather this is no problem – you just need to make sure you time your baths, showers, and washing up carefully. In the winter, being without a working boiler is a much bigger issue. Last winter the temperatures in London dropped to -8, one of the coldest nights recorded for 12 years, and even colder than Russia was at the time. To be without working heating in those temperatures would be untenable, especially if you have older people, vulnerable people, or children and babies in the house.

If you replace your boiler in the summer, you are highly unlikely to be in need of heating at the time.
