Boilers are very sturdy systems. In fact, they've earned a reputation for lasting quite a bit longer than other heating systems. This is because they have fewer moving parts than other heating systems, which provides fewer opportunities for things to go wrong. No heating system can last forever, though. If your boiler is not able to keep you warm through another winter, it's a good idea to replace it now. Let's take a look at some of the signs that you need to replace your boiler system.
As boilers age, they accumulate more and more wear on their various parts. This causes the efficiency of the system to drop over time, forcing it to operate for longer and longer periods of time in order to compensate. This will eventually cause your heating costs to start rising substantially. If your monthly heating bills are rising for no apparent reason, it might be because you need to replace your system.
Boilers don't need repairs as often as other systems, but they do need repairs. The closer a boiler gets to the end of its life, the more likely it will be to develop problems. If you need to repair your furnace more often than once every few years, it may be time to install a new one.
Boilers are manufactured to last around 20 years, on average. You can keep a system up and running past that age, but it will be far less cost-effective in the long run. If your boiler is older than 20 years, you should talk to a professional about whether or not you should replace it.
