Is it Time for Boiler Inspection and Maintenance?
Having your boiler inspected on a regular basis is crucial if you want to keep it in good working condition. Your heating contractor will check all safety devices, ensure that all piping and components are clean and in good shape, and inspect the venting. Annual maintenance also ensures the highest level of efficiency. A contractor will open the boiler up to brush and rinse the heat exchanger. Eliminating deposits and buildup on the heat exchanger means that the unit will more effectively transfer heat from combustion to the water in your hydronic system.
Is it Time for Boiler Repair?
Boilers are durable, reliable and energy efficient. However, like any other mechanical system, they will need repair at some point. Although uncommon, your boiler may develop a leak. This can throw off the balance of pressure in your system and prevent the boiler from operating correctly. Insufficient heat may also be caused by a failed electronic igniter/pilot light, trouble in the fuel line, a broken pump or safety switch, or a malfunctioning thermostat. Regardless of the issue, find a qualified home heating professional who can keep small issues from turning into major problems.
Is it Time for a New Boiler?
Old boilers are inefficient and will typically end up costing you a lot of time and money on repairs. A professional heating contractor will help you decide between repairing the boiler you already have or investing in a new one. Here are several signs it may be time to replace your boiler:
- Your current boiler is over 20 years old: The average lifespan of a cast iron water or boiler is 20 or more years. High efficiency condensing boilers should last 15 or more years. All boilers will eventually wear out or break down and may begin to lose effectiveness long before they live out their useful lives.
- It needs constant repair: As stated above, older systems are more prone to damage. When you invest in a replacement boiler, you can expect your repair costs to drop dramatically.
- It has an AFUE rating below 80%: Older, outdated boilers are less efficient than modern systems and can cost you to spend a lot of money on fuel that is wasted.
