4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air, A Service Experts Company is here with a few signals to look for when choosing whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to operate 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 close to 15 years or your cast iron boiler is coming up on 50 years, it may be time to consider 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 invest in a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

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 producing carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Aramendia 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 appropriately or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective and you may need to look into upgrade options.
