Signs You Need a New Commercial Boiler
Commercial boilers are large and costly systems, and you want to get as many years out of your boiler as you can. However, even with the best care and maintenance, you’ll eventually need to replace your commercial boiler. And you’ll want to do it before it entirely breaks down so you won’t have to be without heat for several days while waiting for the new one to arrive and then get installed. Below are some common signs it may be time to get a new commercial boiler for your business.
Your Boiler Isn’t Heating
Your boiler’s job is to heat your business. If your boiler system isn’t heating efficiently or is heating your business unevenly or not at all, see if it can be repaired. If repairs don’t fix the issue, it may be time to have your commercial boiler replaced.
Your Boiler is Leaking
Older commercial boilers are susceptible to leaks. If you smell sulfur or are noticing puddles of water, you may have a gas or water leak — both of which can lead to serious and costly issues. If your commercial boiler system has severe leaks that are beyond repair, it may be time to get a new commercial boiler.
Your Boiler is Over 15 Years Old
Condensing commercial boilers generally last around 15 to 20 years with regular maintenance. If your commercial boiler is around this age, it may be time to consider an upgrade. Keep in mind, even your system is still working, it may not be performing efficiently as it once did.
You’re Paying More for Heating
Experiencing higher than usual heating costs? Your commercial boiler may not be operating at its full capacity. As your boiler system gets older, it becomes less efficient so if you have a higher heating bill, it may be time to replace your commercial boiler.
Your Boiler is Making Loud or Unusual Noises
Boilers make noise, but any noise that is strange or unusually loud–like clanging and banging should not be ignored. These types of sounds can mean there is a pressure issue or blockage present and the only way to know for sure is to have it serviced. If repairs don’t fix the problem, it might be time to have it replaced.
Your Boiler Needs Constant Repairs
If your commercial boiler is in need of constant repairs, you’re definitely in need of a replacement. Consider the amount you’re spending on repairs. If the cost to repair your current system is getting close to the price you’d pay for a new one, it may be a better value to purchase a new system altogether.
