Boilers keep many homes and businesses warm, but like any appliance, they don’t last forever. Nobody wants to drop the money to buy a new one if they don’t have to, but the Brooklyn plumbing experts at Petri Plumbing can help our Brooklyn neighbors know when it’s time to say goodbye.
Is your boiler more than 15 years old? Inevitably, its useful lifespan is running out. Routine maintenance can help, but staying with older models can mean burning money. They just can’t keep up with new models when it comes to energy efficiency.
Yes, replacing your boiler means dropping a chunk of money, but how much are you spending each year to keep it running? All those service calls add up. Old boilers are a net drain on your finances; however, a new boiler can end up paying for itself. Since older home boilers only run at 50 to 60 percent efficiency, a new boiler can mean substantial energy savings. That means you can make up the cost of installing a new boiler within a few years.
It doesn’t bode well if water is leaking from your boiler. You’ll need to call a licensed expert to talk a look at it and determine whether it can be repaired. Don’t delay. A leaking boiler can end up flooding your home, leading to expensive water damage.
Ready to take the next step? Schedule a boiler inspection by our expert technicians. They can advise you on whether it’s time to replace your older home boiler with a newer model.
