4 Signs it’s Time to Replace your Boiler

Should you replace your boiler? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a couple indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler

Age 

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

Bills 

If your utility bills are increasing or you’re having to maintain your boiler more frequently, it could be because it’s time to buy a new, more efficient boiler. 

Discoloration 

If you see 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 generating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing or your gas company as soon as possible. 

Comfort 

If some of the rooms 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 no longer effective and you may need to look into upgrade options.
