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 a couple signs to look for when determining whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler has routine maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or longer. 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 consider 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 invest in a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you notice yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be an indicator that the fuel is not burning properly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Service Experts or your gas company as soon as possible.

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 anymore and you may need to look into upgrade choices.
