This time of year is often many people’s favourite – bulbs like daffodils and tulips are in full flow, trees are budding and hedgerows across the north east are bursting with blossom.

April and May are often incredibly busy times too for CBFM Heating of Gateshead. Why? People wisely decide to invest in their homes – there’s only cleaning activity named after a season – a spring clean. Spring is a time when garden centres and DIY stores see increased footfall and our company gets more enquiries for boiler service, repairs and installations.

You think about of all your home appliances – the only two that are constantly working all year are the boiler and your fridge freezer. Your fridge cools a small space; your boiler heats your whole home and heats your water. The oven, dishwasher, TV may get used heavily – but the boiler is the powerhouse of your home or business.

With warmer weather and sunnier longer days, few would argue that late April and May are times when you will be completely reliant on your boiler. It gets a break now, along with your pipes and radiators, until September usually and now is the time to get it serviced or replaced.

A new boiler replacement for one that is struggling to heat your home, or working intermittently or inefficiently, is a sound investment. If you’re planning to sell or let your home or business in the next few years, buyers and potential tenants will pay a premium for a home with a new boiler and warranty. It means they’re unlikely to have make that sort of financial investment for some years, as you’ve done it.

If you’re not planning to move any time soon, a new boiler will repay itself many times in reduced running and maintenance costs. New petrol cars are far more efficient than one that is 20 years old – and boilers are no different.

The advantages of a boiler replacement are manifold:

  • Quieter operation
  • Use less gas
  • Environmentally friendlier with reduced emissions
  • Peace of mind with being winter-ready
  • Reduced heating bills
