Is it time to replace your new boiler? Stark Services is here with a couple indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.
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 coming up on 15 years or your cast iron boiler is almost 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.
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.
If you see yellow flames on the gas burners and black soot on oil burners it could be a signal that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be producing carbon monoxide. If you observe these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Stark Services or your gas company as soon as possible.
If some of the areas 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 may need to look into upgrade alternatives.
