4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Rolf Griffin Service Experts is here with a few signs to look for when determining whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to function about 15 years or so. Cast iron boilers can last a lot longer, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is almost 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 call an expert about 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 an indicator that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Rolf Griffin Service Experts or your gas company immediately.

Comfort

If some of the sections in your home are too warm or too cool and you can’t seem to control them correctly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective anymore and you may need to look into upgrade choices.
