4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few 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 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 consider an upgrade.

Bills

If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to call an expert about your boiler more frequently, 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 signal that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

If some of the areas in your home are too cool or too warm and you can’t seem to control them appropriately or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is no longer effective and you could need to look into upgrade alternatives.
