4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Pardee Service Experts is here with a couple indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets standard maintenance, you can expect it to last about 15 years or so. Cast iron boilers can last decades, 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 energy bills are increasing or you’re having to service your boiler more often, it could be because it’s time to purchase a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you discover yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a sign that the fuel is not burning properly and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Pardee or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

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