4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Wesley Wood Service Experts is here with some signs to look for when determining whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets 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 coming up on 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 maintain 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 sign that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Wesley Wood 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 correctly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective and you may need to look into upgrade options.
