4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Parker Pearce Service Experts is here with a couple indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets standard maintenance, you can expect it to last about 15 years or so. Cast iron boilers can last decades, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is coming up on 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 service your boiler more often, 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 an indicator that the fuel is not burning properly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Parker Pearce Service Experts or your gas company straightaway.

Comfort

If some of the rooms 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 alternatives.
