4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Peitz Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few signs to look for when determining whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or more. Cast iron boilers can last decades, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is almost 15 years or your cast iron boiler is getting close to 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to call an expert about 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 an indicator that the fuel is not burning properly and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Peitz Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

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