Is your boiler in need of replacing? Stevenson Service Experts is here with a couple indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.
If your condensing boiler has 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 almost 15 years or your cast iron boiler is coming up on 50 years, it may be time to consider an upgrade.
If your utility bills are going up or you’re having to service your boiler more frequently, it could be because it’s time to purchase a new, more efficient boiler.
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 correctly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Stevenson Service Experts or your gas company as soon as possible.
If some of the areas 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 may need to look into upgrade options.
