4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Norrell Service Experts is here with a couple signs to look for when deciding whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives annual maintenance, you can expect it to operate about 15 years or longer. Cast iron boilers can last even 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 coming up on 50 years, it may be time to consider an upgrade.

Bills

If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to call an expert about 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 properly and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Norrell Service Experts or your gas company straightaway.

Comfort

If some of the areas 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 options.
