4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? BW/Cook Service Experts is here with some signs to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.

Age

If your condensing boiler receives annual maintenance, you can expect it to function 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 close to 15 years or your cast iron boiler is coming up on 50 years, it may be time to consider an upgrade.

Bills

If your utility bills are going up or you’re having to service your boiler more frequently, 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 signal that the fuel is not burning adequately and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call BW/Cook or your gas company straightaway.

Comfort

If some of the sections 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 no longer effective and you might need to look into upgrade alternatives.
