The heat exchanger in the boiler is one of the most important components, and one in full working order helps your combination boiler maintain a high level of efficiency. But when this stops working, you’ll soon find that your home is not as warm as it should be, and you could even be paying out extra for energy. If this is the case, you should consider buying a used or second hand combi boiler heat exchanger, which is something we can offer here at X-Met Metals.
What is a heat exchanger?
A heat exchanger is the boiler component that allows the gas to heat the water. What happens is that when the gas is heated, it rises, and reaches the heat exchanger. This gas is then pushed through the coiled pipe which is surrounded by cold water. As the hot gas moves through it, it gradually heats the water, which is then ready to be supplied to your radiators and taps.
Why should you buy a used heat exchanger for a combi boiler?
There are a number of benefits and advantages of buying a used or second hand heat exchanger. These include:
- Saving money- Money is often the primary concern when it comes to boilers, and boiler repair. But choosing second hand components can be an easy way to save money. A second hand combi boiler heat exchanger is cheaper than a brand new one, which means that you can save money repairing your boiler.
- Saving time- for a new heat exchanger to be ordered in and installed, you could be waiting a while to hear from your gas engineer. In this time your boiler could undergo a full breakdown, and even if it doesn’t, you could be struggling to heat your home and water. Choosing a second hand heat exchanger from us here at X-Met Metals means that you wont be left waiting for long. If we don’t have what you need in stock (which is unusual) we can order this quickly.
if you’re in need of a new heat exchanger, or any other part for your combination boiler, simply fill in our form and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
