4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to function 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 energy bills are increasing or you’re having to call an expert about your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to buy a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you notice yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be an indicator that the fuel is not burning properly and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning or your gas company straightaway.

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 may need to look into upgrade options.
