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 some signs to look for when choosing whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets routine maintenance, you can expect it to function 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 getting close to 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 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 signal that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

If some of the areas 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 no longer effective and you may need to look into upgrade options.
