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 deciding whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives standard maintenance, you can expect it to operate 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 think about an upgrade.

Bills

If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to maintain 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 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 as soon as possible.

Comfort

If some of the sections in your home are too hot or too cold and you can’t seem to control them appropriately or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is no longer effective and you might need to look into upgrade alternatives.
