4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Golden Seal Service Experts is here with a couple indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives annual maintenance, you can expect it to function about 15 years or longer. Cast iron boilers can last a lot 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 utility bills are going up or you’re having to service your boiler more often, 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 generating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Golden Seal Service Experts or your gas company straightaway.

Comfort

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