How old is your boiler?
The age of your boiler should give you a very clear idea of whether you should purchase a new boiler or go for repairs instead. Parts for boilers that are more than 10 years old become difficult to find because manufacturers simply stop making them. Furthermore, such boilers may not even be as efficient as the new boilers available in stores. However, if you simply cannot afford such an expense at the moment then maybe getting in touch with an expert plumber is the right decision for you. Be sure that you get in touch with someone who has had years of plumbing experience and knows their way around your type of boiler.
The Cost of Repairs:-
If the cost of repairs exceeds the cost of a new boiler then it makes no sense in going for boiler. However, if the cost of repair is reasonable then going for repairs is not a bad idea, provided that you can find professional plumbing services.
Have you faced reliability issues before?
Is you boiler often letting your down despite being under 10 years old? If yes, then maybe your need to look into changing your plumber not your boiler.
