4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Fras-Air/General 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 receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to last about 15 years or more. Cast iron boilers can last even longer, 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 discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to call an expert about your boiler more frequently, it could be because it’s time to buy a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you see 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 producing carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Fras-Air/General or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

If some of the sections in your home are too cool or too warm 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 may need to look into upgrade options.
