4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Comfortech Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few indicators 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 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 almost 15 years or your cast iron boiler is coming up on 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising 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 notice 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 generating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Comfortech 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 appropriately or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective and you might need to look into upgrade choices.
