4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? A-PLUS Service Experts 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 more. Cast iron boilers can last decades, 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 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 properly and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call A-PLUS Service Experts or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

If some of the rooms in your home are too hot or too cold and you can’t seem to control them appropriately or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective and you might need to look into upgrade choices.
