How Do I Know if My Boiler Needs Replacing?

April 13, 2021

Your boiler is one of the most important parts of your home. Not only does it keep your temperature at a liveable, comfortable level, but it also needs to be maintained to ensure the safety of your household. That’s why it’s important to recognize the tell-tale signs that your boiler may need to be repaired—or worse, completely replaced.

If you aren’t sure what to look for, you can contact the expert boiler technicians at AccuServ Heating and Air Conditioning. We always have your best interests in mind and will provide you with honest advice when it comes to boiler installation in East York.

Below, we’ll discuss several signs that indicate it may be time to get a new boiler.

Your Boiler Is Older Than 15 Years

Like all machinery, your boiler has a shelf-life. For boilers, while there’s no hard and fast rule for how long you can expect one to last, generally speaking, anything beyond 15 years is pushing it. Over time, rust and corrosion can build up and spread, causing deterioration. Typically, the maintenance costs at this point outweigh the cost of installing a new system. What’s more, advances in boiler technology can actually end up saving you money in the long term as new developments can make the systems more efficient.

Your Boiler Frequently Breaks Downs

If your boiler is repeatedly breaking down, it may be telling you that it’s time for retirement. Breakdowns are inevitable—although with proper maintenance the likelihood of a breakdown occurring can be greatly reduced. But if you’re constantly having to call a technician in to repair your boiler for minor issues or if your boiler is getting up there in age, buying a new one is probably the more cost-effective solution.

One of the best ways to ensure that your boiler is cost-effective is its energy efficiency. If you’re noticing the cost on your energy bills rise, it may be due to the boiler malfunctioning or growing weaker with age. This is a tell-tale sign that it’s time to consider installing a new system.

Your Boiler Is Noisy

While boilers are never going to be whisper-quiet, the amount of noise they make should be reasonable and largely unobtrusive. Certain noises (and levels of noise), however, speak to a deeper problem. If you’re hearing clanging emanating from within the boiler, a loud banging, or sudden sharp noises, then it’s time to consider bringing in a technician for an assessment and potentially a replacement. The noises could be indicating a pressure issue, a blockage, or something altogether worse.
