Should you replace your boiler? Epperson Service Experts is here with a couple signs to look for when determining whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.
If your condensing boiler gets routine maintenance, you can expect it to last 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 consider an upgrade.
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.
If you see 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 producing carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Epperson or your gas company immediately.
If some of the rooms 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 might need to look into upgrade options.
