Is your boiler in need of replacing? Kingston Home Services by Enercare is here with a couple signals to look for when deciding whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.
If your condensing boiler receives annual maintenance, you can expect it to operate 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 coming up on 15 years or your cast iron boiler is getting close to 50 years, it may be time to consider an upgrade.
If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to service your boiler more often, 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 properly and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Kingston Home Services by Enercare or your gas company as soon as possible.
If some of the sections in your home are too cool or too warm and you can’t seem to control them correctly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is no longer effective and you could need to look into upgrade alternatives.
