When to Replace Boiler 617

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few indicators to look for when determining 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 longer. 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 almost 50 years, it may be time to consider an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to maintain your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to invest in 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 adequately and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Service Experts or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

If some of the rooms 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 might need to look into upgrade options.
