4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler has annual maintenance, you can expect it to function about 15 years or so. Cast iron boilers can last a lot longer, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is almost 15 years or your cast iron boiler is getting close to 50 years, it may be time to consider an upgrade.

Bills

If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to call an expert about your boiler more often, it could be because it’s time to purchase a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you discover yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be an indicator that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Service Experts or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

If some of the areas in your home are too hot or too cold and you can’t seem to control them correctly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective anymore and you may need to look into upgrade alternatives.
