4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives standard maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or longer. Cast iron boilers can last even 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 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 invest in a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you see 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 producing carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

If some of the areas 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 and you may need to look into upgrade options.
