Top 3 Signs it’s Time to Replace Your Boiler

Boilers can live relatively long lives and are one of the most common heating systems in older homes and new construction. However, they don’t last forever. It’s essential to keep an eye out for some signs that it could be time to consider replacing your old boiler with a new, energy-efficient one.

If you notice one or more of these signs, don’t hesitate to give us a call:

  • Showing its age. If your boiler is older than 15 years and has demonstrated that age in frequent repairs or service calls, it’s a strong sign it’s time to retire. Waiting too long to replace an aging boiler can result in a complete breakdown, leaving you and your family in a tricky (and often cold) situation. With proper maintenance and boiler services, you can rely on Bradley Mechanical technicians to inform you when something requires a simple repair or that it is time to look into installing a new system.
  • Water Leaks. use a lot of water to keep your space warm and comfortable. Proper installation and maintenance can help to avoid any leaks. Still, if they do happen, it’s important to react right away. Although not all water leaks are signs to replace your boiler, it can be a significant reason to do so and requires a certified technician to make that call.
  • Odd Noises Have you started to hear gurgling or strange sounds in the wall? Some boilers naturally make noises due to water use and heat flow; however, louder sounds can signal your system is no longer functioning effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average cost of new boiler installation can range between $3,500 and $8,000, with the average landing somewhere in the middle. Replacing your boiler is no small decision and an investment we take seriously. Our team will help you identify the right system to fit your budget.

How do I find a boiler that is right for my home and budget?

If you’re replacing an existing boiler, the best place to start is to determine what kind of fuel source you currently have: gas, oil or electric. To avoid additional work and delay in the process, we almost always recommend installing a boiler that uses the same fuel source as your previous one. From there, our boiler installation experts can help you choose an affordable model for your home and schedule an installation.

When is the best time to have a boiler installed?

Summer is the ideal time to consider replacing your boiler. The installation process can take several hours or even several days, depending on the type and any additional work that’s needed. We don’t recommend boiler installations in the winter unless it’s an emergency, as you wouldn’t want to be without heat for that long.

What is the difference between water heaters and boilers?

A water heater is simply a large tank that utilizes gas or electricity to heat water for use in the home. A boiler, on the other hand, can heat water for use in showers and sinks but also turn water into steam to circulate through radiators and provide warmth for the home.
