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 a few 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 so. Cast iron boilers can last even longer, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is almost 15 years or your cast iron boiler is almost 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your utility bills are going up or you’re having to call an expert about your boiler more frequently, 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 an indicator that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you notice 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 sections in your home are too hot or too cold 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 could need to look into upgrade choices.
