4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler has standard maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or more. Cast iron boilers can last a lot 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 think about 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 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 signal that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning or your gas company straightaway.

Comfort

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