4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Broad Ripple Service Experts is here with a few signs to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets routine maintenance, you can expect it to last about 15 years or more. 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 consider 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 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 an indicator that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Broad Ripple Service Experts or your gas company straightaway.

Comfort

If some of the rooms in your home are too hot or too cold 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 could need to look into upgrade options.
