When Should Your Boiler Be Serviced?
Keeping your utility bills low and your boiler working well requires you to include regular inspections as part of your home maintenance regimen. During a boiler service, a professional heating contractor will open the unit up to brush and rinse the heat exchanger. Spotting and remediating corrosion is another reason for regular maintenance and inspection.
Since boilers use water as a means of circulating heat, rust can occur if the boiler is neglected. Corrosion will require components to be replaced, but a knowledgeable contractor will spot rust when it begins or even prevent its formation in the first place.
When You Should Your Boiler Be Replaced?
As boiler heating systems age, they become less efficient, and older models do not have the most modern features that keep costs low. Compare the costs of continuing to use and repair an older boiler with the cost of replacing it.
- If your boiler heating system is 15-20 years old, it could be reaching the end of its useful life. While all boilers last for several years, they will eventually stop working as effectively as they once did.
- An outdated boiler that has an AFUE rating below 80% is not working effectively. You are spending a lot on fuel that is wasted and could benefit from a new boiler.
- Another signal that you may need a new boiler is if your system is regularly breaking down. Older systems are more likely to require repairs. When you invest in a replacement boiler, you can expect your repair costs to drop dramatically.
The heating equipment in your home is vital for keeping your family comfortable. If you need boiler installation and repair services in Pittsburgh, PA, hiring a contractor in the area could be as simple as using the “Find a Contractor” tool on the U.S. Boiler Company website.
