4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Midland Air Service Experts is here with some signs to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets routine maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or longer. Cast iron boilers can last decades, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is close to 15 years or your cast iron boiler is coming up on 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 repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to invest in a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you see yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be an indicator that the fuel is not burning properly and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Midland Air Service Experts or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

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