4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Boehmers/Cronin Emery Home Services by Enercare 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 annual maintenance, you can expect it to last 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 almost 15 years or your cast iron boiler is almost 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to maintain your boiler more often, it could be because it’s time to buy a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you notice yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a signal that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Boehmers/Cronin Emery or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

If some of the rooms 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.
