Boilers tend to last quite a long time, far longer than other traditional heating systems. This is primarily because they are much simpler systems. They have fewer moving mechanical parts, and that means they have fewer ways to develop problems. They don’t last forever, though. If you have a boiler heating your home, there will eventually come a time when you will have to replace it. It’s best to be able to recognize the signs that your boiler is nearing the end of its lifespan so that you can replace it before it breaks down completely. You don’t want to suddenly be left without heat in the middle of winter, after all. So let’s take a look at some of the signs that you need to have your boiler replaced.
The more wear and tear a system accumulates, the less efficient it is going to be. As a boiler gets close to the end of its life, it will start to experience a steady drop in efficiency. This will force the system to stay on for longer periods of time in order to achieve the same results, which will mean higher heating bills. If your heating bills are going up for no apparent reason, you may need to replace the boiler.
Normally, you shouldn’t need to have your boiler repaired more than once or twice a year. Older boilers have more worn down components, however, and that means that they will break down with far greater frequency. If you need to have your boiler repaired once every couple of months, it’s a pretty good sign that the system is in need of replacement.
