4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? McElroy Service Experts is here with a couple signs to look for when determining whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets standard maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or more. Cast iron boilers can last decades, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is almost 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 buy a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you notice yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be an indicator that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call McElroy Service Experts or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

If some of the sections in your home are too hot or too cold and you can’t seem to control them appropriately or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is no longer effective and you could need to look into upgrade options.
