4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some signals to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler has routine maintenance, you can expect it to last 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 close to 15 years or your cast iron boiler is getting close to 50 years, it may be time to consider an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to maintain your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to buy 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 correctly and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call A1 Chesney Service Experts 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 might need to look into upgrade options.
