4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

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

Bills

If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to maintain your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to invest in a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

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

Comfort

If some of the rooms in your home are too cool or too warm and you can’t seem to control them correctly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective and you could need to look into upgrade options.
