4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Air Engineers Service Experts is here with a couple signals to look for when choosing whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives routine 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 almost 15 years or your cast iron boiler is almost 50 years, it may be time to consider an upgrade.

Bills

If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to maintain your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to buy 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 signal that the fuel is not burning properly and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Air Engineers Service Experts or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

If some of the sections in your home are too warm or too cool and you can’t seem to control them appropriately or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is no longer effective and you could need to look into upgrade options.
