4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Atmostemp Service Experts is here with a few signals to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives annual maintenance, you can expect it to last about 15 years or more. 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.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to maintain your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to invest in 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 signal that the fuel is not burning properly and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Atmostemp or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

If some of the areas 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 may need to look into upgrade options.
