4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Neal Harris Service Experts is here with a couple signals to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets annual maintenance, you can expect it to operate 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 almost 15 years or your cast iron boiler is getting close to 50 years, it may be time to think about an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to call an expert about your boiler more often, it could be because it’s time to invest in a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you discover yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a sign that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Neal Harris Service Experts or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

If some of the rooms in your home are too cool or too warm 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 alternatives.
