4 Signs it’s Time to Replace your Boiler

Should you replace your boiler? Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is here with a couple indicators 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 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 getting close to 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade. 

Bills 

If your energy bills are going up or you’re having to maintain your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to buy 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 signal that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning or your gas company as soon as possible. 

Comfort 

If some of the areas 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 and you might need to look into upgrade alternatives.
