4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Strogen's Service Experts is here with some signals to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets annual maintenance, you can expect it to last about 15 years or longer. Cast iron boilers can last decades, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is almost 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 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 generating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Strogen's Service Experts or your gas company straightaway.

Comfort

If some of the sections in your home are too hot or too cold 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.
