Our guide to replacing a boiler
Faulty or damaged boilers are costly to run and can create an unnecessary safety risk in your home. We’ve put together this guide to help you decide when and how to upgrade your boiler.

Selecting the right boiler
British Gas offers a wide range of A-rated, energy efficient boilers to suit the needs of all budgets and homes. Each British Gas boiler undergoes extensive efficiency and quality testing, but it is important that you consider carefully which one is right for your home.
When you’re speaking to a British Gas expert about upgrading your boiler, make sure you ask which size of boiler is best for your home. The wrong size of boiler will be inefficient and could lead to higher energy bills.
