4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Donelson Air Service Experts is here with some indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or more. Cast iron boilers can last a lot longer, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is coming up on 15 years or your cast iron boiler is almost 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to service your boiler more frequently, 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 signal that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Donelson Air Service Experts or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

If some of the sections in your home are too hot or too cold and you can’t seem to control them appropriately or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective and you might need to look into upgrade alternatives.
