We all know that inflation is high, the cost of living is soaring and, without getting political, many businesses and homeowners are struggling financially. We've had the traumas of the continuing war in the Ukraine, the effects and aftershocks of Covid 19 and rising rates of mortgage lending.
We all know of businesses who've seen utility bills quadruple and more, because many are now on expensive variable standard tariffs with utility companies no longer allowing fixed tariffs. Anyone used to be able to quickly search on Google and find a better rate from multiple energy providers, but no more. That freedom of choice has seemingly gone, perhaps never to return.
“We had a kettle; we let it leak:
Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe.”
― The Collected Poems of Rudyard Kipling
Businesses, then, are always looking for ways to save money and lighting, heating and cooling are one road to travel down. It doesn't require a business brain to recognise that repairing and not replacing is one way to save money. If you think back to decades gone, we lived more frugally in the past. People didn't throw shoes away - a cobbler in every town fixed the shoes. We didn't use carrier bags but cardboard boxes to pack groceries away in supermarkets. We didn't remove boilers every 3 years and replace with brand new (in the 1970s, central heating was a novelty).
Google search will reveal that a new freestanding high end boiler will cost just below £9000 for commercial premises in varying outputs. That new boiler may save you money in the long term, but in the midst of a cost of living crisis, would your business be better off repairing?
