Most of us take our boiler for granted. At least until it breaks and we are left with no heating or no hot water, or both, until this can be repaired or replaced. But with repair costs soaring, an increasing number of people are opting for second hand, refurbished boiler parts, to keep costs down. So whether you’re a homeowner or a landlord, or even a heating engineer or plumber, you need to find a reliable source of refurbished boiler parts. And that’s what we can offer here at X-Met Metals. We can provide high quality second hand boiler parts, as well as complete, second hand combination boilers, across the North West, including Liverpool, Ormskirk, St Helens and Skelmersdale.
Refurbished boiler parts
So, what are the spare boiler parts we buy and sell? Well, we stock a range of second hand, refurbished boiler parts, with an emphasis on the parts that are most frequently damaged due to wear and tear. These include:
- Combination boiler fans
- Heat exchanger
- Diverter valves
Refurbished Combination boiler fans
If the fan isnt working, your boiler will not turn on at all. This is a safety feature, to protect you and your home, because the role of the fan is to direct waste gases into the flue and out of your home. So if your fan is not working, don’t choose a whole new boiler, simply buy a refurbished combi boiler fan, and have this installed by a professional, qualified, heating engineer.
Refurbished heat exchangers
This is responsible for heating the water, and also for cooling too, ready to be re-heated. Over time, the heat exchanger can break down or become obstructed by limescale build ups. This can seriously effect the efficiency of your boiler, and prevent it from working at all. But replacing the heat exchanger with a refurbished spare, can be an ideal solution.
Refurbished diverter valves
These open and close to heat both hot water, and the water in the heating system, so that you can have central heating and hot water. These valves can break down over time, and this causes one of the most common boiler problems, a lack of heating, or a lack of hot water. But simply replacing this with a refurbished part can solve your issue and further the lifespan of your boiler.
Why should you choose second hand refurbished boiler parts?
So, why should opt to replace broken parts, with refurbished boiler parts? Well, there are a number of advantages, including:
- Saving money- refurbished and second hand boiler parts tend to be cheaper than buying a whole new part. And its definitely cheaper than replacing your entire boiler. So if budget is an issue, a refurbished part can help you heat your home for less.
- Saving time- new boiler parts often have to be ordered in and this can cost more money, as well as taking up to a week or sometimes even longer to arrive. A refurbished boiler part can be much quicker to get hold of, especially from us here at X-Met Metals.
- Saving the environment- recycling is a hot topic, and this extends to boiler parts and scrap metals too. Choosing refurbished parts instead of new parts can help to lower your carbon footprint and reuse valuable materials that would otherwise be wasted.
