4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Service Experts Commercial HVAC is here with a couple indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler has annual maintenance, you can expect it to function about 15 years or longer. 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 discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to service your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to purchase a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you notice yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be an indicator that the fuel is not burning adequately 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 Commercial HVAC or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

If some of the rooms in your home are too hot or too cold and you can’t seem to control them properly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is no longer effective and you might need to look into upgrade alternatives.
