Is your boiler in need of replacing? Levy & Son Service Experts is here with a few indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.
If your condensing boiler gets routine 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 almost 15 years or your cast iron boiler is coming up on 50 years, it may be time to think about an upgrade.
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 purchase a new, more efficient boiler.
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 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 not effective and you might need to look into upgrade choices.
