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

Age

If your condensing boiler has standard maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or longer. 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 coming up on 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 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 signal that the fuel is not burning properly and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Service Experts or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

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