4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to function about 15 years or so. Cast iron boilers can last even longer, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is close to 15 years or your cast iron boiler is coming up on 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your utility bills are going up 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 an indicator that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

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