4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is it time to replace your new boiler? Stark Services is here with a couple indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler gets standard maintenance, you can expect it to last about 15 years or so. Cast iron boilers can last even longer, even up to 50 years with proper maintenance. If your condensing boiler is close to 15 years or your cast iron boiler is coming up on 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your utility bills are going up or you’re having to service your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to purchase a new, more efficient boiler.

Discoloration

If you see yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a sign that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Stark Services or your gas company as soon as possible.

Comfort

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