4 Signs it's Time to Replace your Boiler

March 04, 2017

Is your boiler in need of replacing? Komfort Air 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 routine maintenance, you can expect it to operate 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 close to 15 years or your cast iron boiler is getting close to 50 years, it may be time to discuss an upgrade.

Bills

If your heating bills are rising or you’re having to maintain your boiler more often, it could be because it’s time to buy 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 correctly and could be generating carbon monoxide. If you notice these issues or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Komfort Air 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 properly or get them comfortable, it could be that your boiler is not effective anymore and you might need to look into upgrade options.
