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 a few signals to look for when deciding whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to last about 15 years or more. Cast iron boilers can last decades, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is coming up on 15 years or your cast iron boiler is almost 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.

Bills

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

Discoloration

If you see yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be an indicator that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you see 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 cool or too warm and you can’t seem to control them appropriately or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective and you could need to look into upgrade choices.
