4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Service Experts Commercial HVAC is here with a couple indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler has annual maintenance, you can expect it to function about 15 years or more. Cast iron boilers can last even 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 discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising 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 about 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 areas in your home are too cool or too warm and you can’t seem to control them appropriately or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective anymore and you may need to look into upgrade alternatives.
