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 some indicators to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

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

Bills

If your utility bills are going up or you’re having to maintain your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to buy a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you notice yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a sign that the fuel is not burning properly and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Service Experts or your gas company straightaway.

Comfort

If some of the rooms in your home are too hot or too cold and you can’t seem to control them properly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective and you could need to look into upgrade choices.
