Boiler types for homes

Home size and needs vary all over Dublin city and county. If the gas boiler you have is not meeting your needs, we can replace it with one that will. 

Of all the types available, combination boilers, also known as combi or combi-boilers are the most common gas boiler choice for Dublin households. Favoured because they heat both your water and your home. Combi boilers are ideal for homes that are short on space as the design is compact and there is no external tank. 

If you have a bigger home or a high demand in your home for hot water, a system gas boiler could be a better choice than a combi boiler. System gas boilers are bigger than combination boilers as are heat only boilers. Both of these have more components and additional tanks. They are, however, a good choice if there are a few people living in the home.

How to tell if your boiler needs replacing 

There are a number of clues that it is time for your boiler to be replaced. We have listed some of the things to watch out for below.

If you are not sure that your boiler needs replacing, contact us today to organise a checkup.

The colour of the flame

The flame of a gas boiler should be blue. If the flame is yellow instead this could indicate the presence of carbon monoxide. This is a very dangerous and odourless gas. If the flame of your boiler is yellow. Call an emergency plumber immediately and go somewhere safe like a neighbour’s house. 

The smell

There should be no smell from your gas boiler. If you smell gas. Open the windows and leave the house immediately. Call the Gas Networks emergency number 1850 205 050. 

Rising heating or repair costs

An unhealthy boiler has to work harder to heat your home and water. As a result, you might notice a spike in your gas bills. You might also need to have it repaired more often. A newer, healthy, boiler should only need maintaining with an annual checkup. A regular need for repair suggests it is coming to the end of its days. 

Your boiler is acting strangely

On average, a home boiler has a lifespan of approximately 15 years. After that, it will start to wear out and deteriorate. It might become unreliable, failing to heat your home like it use to. In some instances, a boiler can start to make strange noises as its mechanisms deteriorate. 

“I knew something was wrong because every time the heating came on the boiler would make a strange squeaking noise. I was worried that getting a gas boiler changed would be a hassle. Stronge heating put my mind at ease, explained everything and had the new boiler in within a day. It was easy in the end”, Becca Dunne, Dublin West
