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 indicators to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to function about 15 years or more. Cast iron boilers can last a lot longer, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is coming up on 15 years or your cast iron boiler is almost 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 frequently, 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 producing carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns about 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 properly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective anymore and you might need to look into upgrade alternatives.
