4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple signals to look for when determining whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives annual maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or longer. Cast iron boilers can last decades, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is close to 15 years or your cast iron boiler is getting close to 50 years, it may be time to consider an upgrade.

Bills

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.

Discoloration

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 Service Experts or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

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.
