4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets standard 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 almost 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to maintain your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to purchase a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you notice 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 creating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Abbey Air Service Experts 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 not effective anymore and you might need to look into upgrade alternatives.
