4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Coastal Service Experts is here with a couple signs to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets standard maintenance, you can expect it to last about 15 years or longer. Cast iron boilers can last a lot 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 consider 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 purchase a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you discover yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be an indicator that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Coastal Service Experts or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

If some of the sections 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 may need to look into upgrade alternatives.
