Boilers have a reputation for lasting quite a bit longer than standard heating systems. This is mainly because they have fewer moving parts, which makes it less likely for issues to occur because of mechanical strain. However, they’re not perfect. Sooner or later, the system will wear down to the point that you need to install a new one. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can tell when it’s time to replace your boiler.
There are a number of different problems that can cause your boiler’s heating output to drop. However, there comes a time when a substantial drop in output is simply the result of years of wear and tear. If your old boiler can’t seem to keep up with your heating demands anymore, it may simply be too worn out. Have a professional examine it, to make sure.
Boilers may be resistant to a lot of problems, but they still run into them every once in a while. As a boiler ages, its parts will become more and more worn down until they start to fail in rapid succession. If your boiler is in need of repairs multiple times a year, that’s a pretty good sign that you need to have it replaced.
Boilers tend to last right around 20 years, depending on the individual manufacturer and circumstances. Once they get older than that, they become increasingly difficult to maintain. If your boiler is older than 20 years, talk to a professional about whether or not you should install a new one. It might be more cost effective to have a new one installed, than to spend the money to keep your current one up and running.
