When your water heating system isn’t working correctly, the first thing to check is your boiler. If you can’t troubleshoot the problem yourself, then Adams Heating & Cooling in West Springfield, PA, recommends hiring a boiler repair company for an inspection. They’ll have the equipment and the knowledge to determine whether it can be fixed or is time for a new one.
Most boilers will last at least 15 years if properly maintained. If your heating system is less than five or 10 years old, then it is more advantageous to execute repairs before opting for replacement. Usually, small issues like inconsistencies in heating can be fixed by making a minor adjustment. Additionally, a noisy system or a leak can be solved by a boiler repair technician. The only time when you shouldn’t attempt to fix a newer unit is if the cost of repair exceeds the cost of replacement.
For boilers that exceed 15 years old, it’s probably best to remove the unit from your building and replace it with a new one. The older the unit, the more likely that it’s not energy efficient, meaning that you’re probably paying too much for your utility bills. By changing out this system with a new one, you can save money and enjoy a more efficient system. Another instance when you should replace your boiler is when you experience regular breakdowns. Paying for repairs over and over again isn’t good for your boiler or your wallet.
Putting off boiler repair or replacement could result in potentially dangerous conditions like leaking carbon monoxide.
