4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Levy & Son Service Experts is here with a couple signs to look for when determining whether it’s time to buy 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 even longer, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is almost 15 years or your cast iron boiler is almost 50 years, it may be time to consider an upgrade.

Bills

If your utility bills are going up or you’re having to call an expert about your boiler more frequently, it could be because it’s time to invest in a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you discover yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a signal that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Levy & Son Service Experts or your gas company straightaway.

Comfort

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