Boiler repair for property owners almost always evokes the question from a homeowner – “Should I repair or replace my boiler?” Our staff is happy to help you determine the best option while we have provided some information below to help you make an informed decision.
The Age of the Boiler – Should You Replace or Repair?
Generally the age of the boiler is important when deciding to repair or replace. Boilers that exceed 15 years of age are close to the end of their useful life. An expensive repair is usually a poor investment as the boiler is likely to develop a new problem within a short time of the initial repair. Talk with your repair technician before proceeding with a repair.
Repairs on boilers that are 5 to 10 years old need to be evaluated on a case by case basis. Our boiler repair technicians can you help decide. A boiler’s efficiency is measured by its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating(SEER.) The higher a boiler’s SEER rating the more efficiently it operates. This means that boilers with higher SEER rating use less fuel to provide heat and homeowners save money on utility bills. While an inexpensive repair may be worthwhile doing on a boiler in this age range, check with your boiler repair technician to find out the SEER rating. They will also know if there are utility rebates being offered in your area if you replace an inefficient boiler with a high efficiency boiler. If your repair is going to be expensive, factoring in utility savings, rebate and avoiding repair cost may make buying and installing a new boiler a better option
