4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Comfort Masters Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some signs to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives annual 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 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 sign that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Comfort Masters Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

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