4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts is here with some indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets annual maintenance, you can expect it to function 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 coming up on 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to service your boiler more frequently, it could be because it’s time to buy 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 signal that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts or your gas company immediately.

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.
