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

Age

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

Bills

If your heating bills are rising 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 see yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a signal that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you see 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 areas in your home are too warm or too cool and you can’t seem to control them properly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is no longer effective and you might need to look into upgrade choices.
