Should you replace your boiler? Freschi Service Experts is here with a couple signals to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.
If your condensing boiler gets standard 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 coming up on 15 years or your cast iron boiler is almost 50 years, it may be time to think about an upgrade.
If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to call an expert about your boiler more frequently, it could be because it’s time to invest in a new, more efficient boiler.
If you notice 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.
If some of the rooms 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 anymore and you may need to look into upgrade choices.
