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 signals to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to function about 15 years or more. 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 think about an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to maintain your boiler more often, 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 signal that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns regarding 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 warm or too cool and you can’t seem to control them correctly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective anymore and you may need to look into upgrade alternatives.
