4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few signs to look for when determining 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 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 getting close to 50 years, it may be time to think about an upgrade.

Bills

If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to service 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 properly and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning or your gas company straightaway.

Comfort

If some of the areas 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 choices.
