What Are the Signs You Need a New Boiler?

Boilers are one of the most important pieces of equipment in your home in Brighton, CO; when they go bad, it can be a nightmare. Below are common signs that you may need a new boiler installation.

Increased Energy Bills

An old and inefficient boiler will be uncomfortable and increase your energy bills. If you have noticed that your energy bills have been increasing, it may be time for a new boiler. Replace an old boiler with a new one and you can save up to 30% on your energy bills.

Boiler Makes Strange Noises

A good boiler should operate quietly and without strange noises. You should only hear a noise from your boiler when the water is boiling. If your boiler makes strange noises, it may indicate a build-up of sediment in the tank or worn-out parts.

Frequent Breakdowns

Old or inefficient boilers are more likely to break down and need repairs more often. If you have had to call for repairs more frequently, it may be time to replace your boiler. Ensure that you keep up with regular maintenance to extend the life of your boiler.

The Boiler Is More Than 15 Years Old

The average lifespan of a boiler is 15-20 years. If your boiler is approaching or has surpassed this age, it may be time to start thinking about replacing it. Even if your boiler is still running, an older model will not be as efficient as a new one and you may be paying more energy bills.

Boiler Takes a Long Time to Heat Up

If your boiler is in a good state, it should take seconds to heat up. However, if it takes excessively long to heat up, this is a sign of a problem, and you may need a new boiler. The new boilers on the market use advanced technology to heat up much faster than older models.

If you have noticed any of these signs, it may be time for a new boiler. Contact Apple Aire Heating & Cooling to discuss your new water heating options. We will help you choose the best boiler for your home and budget.
