With Brooklyn finally enjoying warm weather, it’s understandable that our neighbors might not want to think about their heating systems until fall is coming to a close. Now that the demand for heating system repairs has quieted down, though, it’s a good time to see to the needs of your aging boiler.
If you spent the winter miserable from a failing boiler or if high heating bills had you sweating, it’s time to talk to the Brooklyn plumbing experts at Petri Plumbing about whether it is time to replace your old boiler.
Boilers don’t last forever. If yours is more than 15 years old, it’s nearing the end of its lifespan. We’re happy to help keep it running as long as possible through routine maintenance and repairs, but all you’ll do is burn money the longer you limp along with an outdated model. Older home boilers can only run at 50 to 60 percent efficiency of the newest models, so that means you’re just wasting half of the money you spend on heating.
Looking at the one-time cost of replacing your boiler might convince you to try to get a few more years of service out of it, but reduced utility bills will more than make up for the cost within a few years. If you want to learn more, schedule a boiler inspection by our expert technicians. They give you recommendations on getting the most out of your current boiler or whether it makes financial sense to replace it with a newer model.
