4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Becht/Givens Service Experts is here with a few indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler has routine maintenance, you can expect it to last 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 getting close to 50 years, it may be time to think about an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to maintain your boiler more frequently, 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 an indicator that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Becht/Givens Service Experts or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

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