4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Should you replace your boiler? Rob's Albertan Service Experts is here with a few signs to look for when deciding whether it’s time to purchase a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler has annual maintenance, you can expect it to operate 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 consider an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to service your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to invest in a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you notice yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a sign that the fuel is not burning correctly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Rob's Albertan Service Experts 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 might need to look into upgrade choices.
