Is your boiler in need of replacing? Niagara Home Services by Enercare is here with some signs to look for when choosing whether it’s time to buy a new boiler.
If your condensing boiler receives standard 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 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.
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 correctly and could be creating carbon monoxide. If you see these issues or have any concerns about carbon monoxide in your home, you should call Niagara Home Services by Enercare or your gas company immediately.
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 no longer effective and you may need to look into upgrade alternatives.
