For the average homeowner or business owner, boilers can be confusing. It’s tricky knowing whether you’re purchasing the right boiler for your space, or whether a boiler can be repaired or not.
That is why we have put together this list of frequently asked questions to help you make the right decisions about boilers for your home or business.
1. What Are the Different Types of Boilers?
Combi-Boilers are growing in popularity because of their size and energy-saving capabilities. These are units that are small enough to hang on the wall and can heat up both your home and hot water simultaneously. There is a wide range of Combi-Boilers to suit many needs.
Dunkirk boilers are affordable and can replace your existing boiler to provide years of reliable heating for your home.
Some cast iron boilers have a 99% efficiency rate that will save you hundreds on your heating bills over their lifetime. The KN Series boiler from Mestek has a modulating gas valve which makes it one of the most efficient Cast Iron boilers around.

2. How Often Should I Replace My Boiler?
The general lifespan of a boiler is around 10 to 15 years, but with proper care and maintenance, it can last longer. It’s time to replace your boiler when repairs become frequent or too expensive. The decision to buy a new boiler should be based on saving you money in the long term.
