Should you replace your boiler? D.A. Bennett Service Experts is here with some signals to look for when choosing whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.
If your condensing boiler has annual maintenance, you can expect it to function 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 almost 50 years, it may be time to think about an upgrade.
If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to maintain your boiler more often, it could be because it’s time to purchase a new, more efficient boiler.
If you discover yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be an indicator that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call D.A. Bennett Service Experts or your gas company immediately.
If some of the sections 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 may need to look into upgrade choices.
