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 deciding whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets standard maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or more. Cast iron boilers can last a lot 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 almost 50 years, it may be time to consider an upgrade.

Bills

If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to maintain your boiler more frequently, it could be because it’s time to buy a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you see yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a sign that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be creating 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 immediately.

Comfort

If some of the rooms in your home are too cool or too warm and you can’t seem to control them properly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is no longer effective and you may need to look into upgrade alternatives.
