How Do You Know if You Need a New Boiler

When a boiler wears out, it will start to exhibit symptoms that you may notice. Here are eight signs that you need a boiler replacement:

 

●        The boiler receives a low-efficiency rating (usually below ‘A’).

●        It takes too long for the boiler to heat up.

●        The flame burns yellow. It's a sign of unhealthy carbon monoxide emission.

●        The boiler needs frequent and expensive repairs.

●        The cost of maintaining the boiler is too high.

●        The house doesn’t heat up as it should

●        The boiler makes strange noises.

●        You smell something strange when the boiler turns on.

 

Are New Boilers Really More Efficient?

Technicians measure a boiler's efficiency by what’s called the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). AFUE is a measure of how efficient the appliance is in converting its fuel energy to heat with a year. Modern boilers have an AFUE rating of between 95% and 100%. Therefore, they are far more efficient than old boilers that usually have a declining rate as the years go by (generally between 56% and 70%). Higher efficiency in new models means reduced energy bills each month. You will save more money in the long run by making the investment.

 

Here’s a comparison:

 

Old, low-efficiency boilers:

 

●        Natural draft that creates a flow of combustion gases

●        Continuous pilot light

●        Heavy heat exchanger

●        56% to 70% AFUE.

 

High-efficiency heating systems:

 

●        Condensing flue gases in a second heat exchanger for extra efficiency

●        Sealed combustion

●        90% to 98.5% AFUE.

 

Replacing Your Furnace or Boiler

Upgrading your furnace or boiler from 56% to 90% efficiency in an average cold-climate such as Minneapolis or St. Paul will save 1.5 tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year if you heat with gas, or 2.5 tons if you heat with oil. If your furnace or boiler is old, worn out, inefficient, or significantly oversized, the simplest solution is for us to replace it with a modern high-efficiency model.
