When investing in a new boiler, one essential consideration is whether the boiler comes with a warranty. A warranty provides protection and peace of mind for homeowners by covering the cost of repairs or replacements for certain components or defects within a specified period. Understanding the warranty terms and coverage offered by different boiler manufacturers can help you make informed decisions about your purchase. Here’s what you need to know about warranties for new boilers:

Types of Warranties


New boilers typically come with two types of warranties:


  • Manufacturer’s Warranty: This warranty is provided by the boiler manufacturer and covers defects in materials and workmanship for a specified period, usually ranging from one to ten years. Manufacturer warranties vary depending on the brand and model of the boiler, with some manufacturers like Worcester Bosch offering longer warranty periods for certain components or models.
  • Installation Warranty: Some heating engineers or installation companies may offer a separate warranty for the installation workmanship, covering issues related to the installation process, such as faulty installation or workmanship errors. Installation warranties typically range from one to five years, depending on the installer and the terms of the warranty agreement.

Warranty Coverage

The coverage provided by a boiler warranty can vary depending on the manufacturer and the specific terms of the warranty agreement. Common components covered by boiler warranties may include:


  • Boiler heat exchanger
  • Boiler controls and components
  • Ignition systems
  • Circulation pumps
  • Expansion vessels
  • Pressure relief valves


It’s essential to review the warranty terms and conditions carefully to understand what is covered and any exclusions or limitations that may apply. Some warranties may require regular servicing and maintenance by a qualified heating engineer to remain valid, so it’s crucial to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for proper care and maintenance of the boiler.

Benefits of Warranties

A warranty provides several benefits for homeowners:


  • Peace of mind: A warranty provides assurance that the boiler is protected against defects or malfunctions, giving homeowners peace of mind and confidence in their investment.
  • Cost savings: With a warranty in place, homeowners are protected from unexpected repair or replacement costs for covered components during the warranty period, potentially saving them money on repairs.
  • Quality assurance: Manufacturer warranties reflect the confidence of the manufacturer in the quality and reliability of their products, assuring homeowners of the boiler’s performance and durability.


Warranties are an essential consideration when purchasing a new boiler for your home, providing protection and peace of mind for homeowners. By understanding the types of warranties available, the coverage provided, and the terms and conditions of the warranty agreement, homeowners can make informed decisions about their boiler purchase and ensure they have the necessary protection in place for their investment.
