Should you replace your boiler? D&K Home Services by Enercare is here with some signals to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new boiler.
If your condensing boiler gets routine maintenance, you can expect it to last about 15 years or longer. 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.
If your energy bills are increasing or you’re having to call an expert about your boiler more repeatedly, it could be because it’s time to buy a new, more efficient boiler.
If you discover 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 generating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns surrounding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call D & K Home Services or your gas company immediately.
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 no longer effective and you might need to look into upgrade alternatives.
