Should You Consider Replacing Your Boiler?
Just like any other piece of household equipment, your boiler won’t last forever, even with consistent boiler maintenance. The average life expectancy for a boiler is between 10 and 15 years. Some can last longer, but it is critical to recognize the signs that your boiler may need to be replaced.
Signs You Need A New Boiler Installed In Your Residential or Commercial Property
Your Boiler’s Flame Is Yellow, Not Blue
This is an important sign that your boiler needs to be replaced. Even more importantly, it is also an indicator of the presence of carbon monoxide. Evacuate your family and pets from the home immediately, and call Deljo right away.
Your Boiler Is Leaking
A boiler will start leaking once it is nearing the end of its lifespan. Leaks are a sign of a broken seal or valve. They can also result in an electrical short circuit, which should be handled right away.
Hot and Cold Patches
If some rooms in your house are nice and warm but others stay cold, it’s time to replace your boiler.
Increase In Fuel Costs
An unexplained rise in your fuel costs indicates that your boiler isn’t running as efficiently as it should. This is a good sign that you might want to have a new boiler installed.
Your Boiler Takes Longer To Heat
Fully functioning boiler systems heat within a few seconds. If you are having to wait several minutes to start feeling warm air, chances are you need a new boiler.
Your Boiler Needs Repeated Repairs
If you are constantly needing boiler repairs, it is probably more cost effective to have a new boiler installed. Routine boiler maintenance is necessary, but you should not invest in costly repairs for a failing system.
