Boilers in Shrewsbury – Repair, Replacement and Annual Servicing
When people seek out replacement boilers in Shrewsbury, they are looking for one of three types of Shrewsbury Plumbing services, either:
1) Boiler Repair: They have a defective boiler which needs repairing and usually it needs to be put right quickly. If this is you, you will need a Shrewsbury plumber urgently. If there is a delay in winter, suffering a boiler breakdown will mean the discomfort of a cold home, or the cost of plugging in electric fires for temporary use is high, and we all know just how expensive that can be. In addition, electric heaters can cause fires, especially in families where the occupants are not used to taking care using convection and radiant heaters.
2) Boiler Replacement: Central heating boilers used to last for 15 years or more, however, the present generation of compact high energy efficiency condensing combi-boilers is so far not so well-proven, and likely to be less. The result is that once your boiler reaches a certain age there will be non-user serviceable parts that need replacement in more modern boilers, or older boilers may simply become excessively unreliable, or the parts may have been discontinued. Once one of those happens, a boiler replacement from a reputable Shrewsbury plumber is the only viable solution.
3) Annual Servicing: A search for boilers in Shrewsbury is also on occasions, the result of a homeowner taking the advice given by the plumbing industry, which is that all central heating boilers should be serviced annually to clean them internally, ensure reliable operation, and to identify any problems that may be developing. An annual servicing and inspection allows some faults to be rectified before the occupant ends up with a cold home while they wait for a plumber to call. Somehow, doesn’t it always seem to be very cold weather whenever a boiler fails to work!

The UK along with most other nations has also signed up to the Climate Change Treaty. This means that the UK is working with the rest of the nations of the world, to reduce carbon emissions and one of the best ways to do that is to use the fuels we have, more efficiently.
