Like anything you own, a boiler is going to experience wear and tear throughout years of regular use. The average boiler tends to last roughly two decades. At the end of its lifespan, you’ll begin to see certain signs that should tell you it’s time to move on and have a new boiler installed into your home. Here are signs that it might be time to move on.
Continued noise from your boiler isn’t normal. A boiler in its prime won’t give you much, if any at all. Noises will also indicate that your boiler pressure isn’t operating at a comfortable level. If you’re hearing noises such as hissing, clanking, and rattling, then this is a tell tale sign that it may be time to move on.
Leaks represent the failing structure of your boiler from use over time. Whether you begin to see small leaks drip from your machine, or a large puddle, it may be time to start considering having an entirely new boiler installed into your living space.
Unpredictable Changes in Heating
Are you noticing regular fluctuation in how hot or cool your home is? Is the temperature in various rooms dramatically high or low? Does it take more than a few minutes for your home to heat up? These could be signs that your unit is close to the end of its lifespan. You can attempt some form of maintenance, but if it routinely needs it, start your search for a new one.
With an aging boiler, you’ll begin to see a rising trend in seeing it consume more power, thus more money out of your pocket when it comes time to pay bills at the end of the month. On top of that, you are likely paying for service on your boiler more often. At that point, it is more worthwhile from both a time and budgeting standpoint to simply have a new boiler installed.
