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 some signals to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets standard maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or so. Cast iron boilers can last a lot longer, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is close to 15 years or your cast iron boiler is almost 50 years, it may be time to think about an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to call an expert about your boiler more frequently, it could be because it’s time to purchase a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you discover yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a sign that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be producing 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 straightaway.

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 and you could need to look into upgrade alternatives.
