4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Freschi Service Experts is here with a few signals to look for when choosing whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or so. Cast iron boilers can last a lot longer, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is close to 15 years or your cast iron boiler is almost 50 years, it may be time to think about an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to call an expert about your boiler more often, it could be because it’s time to purchase 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 properly and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Freschi Service Experts or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

If some of the areas 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 no longer effective and you may need to look into upgrade options.
