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

Age

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

Bills

If your utility bills are going up or you’re having to service your boiler more often, it could be because it’s time to purchase 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 sign that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you observe 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 sections in your home are too warm or too cool and you can’t seem to control them appropriately or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective anymore and you may need to look into upgrade alternatives.
