How do you know when a steam boiler needs to be replaced?

If your steam boiler is aging and you're not sure if you could postpone replacement for another year, here are some guidelines you can follow and see when is the right time:

  • THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF YOUR BOILER IS LOWER THAN USUAL
  • YOUR BOILER TAKES LONGER TO WARM UP THAN BEFORE.
  • THE BOILER'S FUMES ARE GETTING OUT AT A FURTHER TEMPERATURE
  • YOUR BOILER IS LEAKING.
  • YOUR FUEL COSTS ARE RISING.
  • YOUR BOILER NEEDS TO BE REPAIRED MORE FREQUENTLY.
  • THE BOILER PARTS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

The two key factors involved in the repair or replacement issue are safety and cost. If your old boiler shows no warning signs of safety problems requiring prompt replacement, we recommend you perform a cost analysis to compare the repair cost of your current boiler over the next two years with the one of purchasing a new one.
