It is not unheard of for a residential boiler system to last up to 50 years or more. However, even the most reliable boilers will break down over time. Pretty much the only thing you can count on is that your boiler will break down at the least convenient time for you and your family. Whether your boiler needs service or repair be sure to call our team of licensed plumbers and NATE Certified Service Experts.
When Should A Boiler Be Replaced?
Just because a boiler can run for over 40 years doesn’t mean you should keep throwing good money away. Most residential boilers will last between 10 and 15 years. If you are facing pending repairs and comfort concerns then you should consider replacement options. We have replaced many boilers after only 10 years or so due to improper installation or lack of maintenance. If you have any of the following issues then it may be worth considering replacement options:
- Water leaks from boiler system
- Pilot light won’t stay lit
- Banging or whistling noises
- The thermostat wont turn on the boiler
- Multiple breakdowns requiring different repairs
- Multiple service calls with unresolved issues for the same repair
If you are facing these issues, or similar problems, then call our team of Service Experts today. Our trucks are stocked with thousands of the most commonly used parts and supplies so most repairs can be made right then and there. If you decide to replace your boiler then we can accommodate and coordinate the installation for you quickly too.
