Time to Replace Your Boiler? Keeping Warm in Your Brooklyn Home
If you spent last year’s holiday season shivering from the cold or sweating from high energy bills, a new energy-efficient boiler might be the perfect Christmas gift for your household. The Brooklyn plumbing experts at Petri Plumbing can advise you on whether it is time to replace your old boiler.
If your boiler is more than 15 years old, its useful lifespan is coming to a close. Although routine maintenance can forestall the inevitable, older models just can’t compete with the energy efficiency of new models. You won’t be burning money with a new system.
Even though the cost of replacing your boiler might seem like an awful big chunk of change, it will cost less than constant service calls to keep it running. A new boiler will also pay for itself over the long-term with reduced utility bills. Older home boilers only run at 50 to 60 percent efficiency, so installing a new boiler means you can make up the cost within a few years.
If water is leaking from your boiler, there is definitely something wrong. An inspection can determine whether it is repairable. Don’t delay, though. If a leaking boiler leads to flooding, it can severely damage your home.
