4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Roland J. Down Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple signs to look for when determining whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

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

Bills

If your utility bills are going up 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 discover yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a signal that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Roland J. Down Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

If some of the sections in your home are too cool or too warm and you can’t seem to control them correctly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective and you may need to look into upgrade options.
