When Do I need a New Boiler?
If your boiler is more than 15 years old, has broken down a few times or is causing any of the issues below, it may be time for a new one. If you’re unsure about boiler replacement, an inspection by a licensed technician can tell you if your current unit is at the end of its useful life.
A spike in your monthly energy bills may be a sign your boiler isn’t operating at peak efficiency.
A swing in temperature or lack of heat in some rooms could mean your unit is malfunctioning.
A leaking boiler is likely reaching the end of its lifespan. You may need to have it replaced to avoid a breakdown or prevent flooding.
If you see black soot or yellow flames around the burners, the fuel may not be burning properly, and you may also be at risk of carbon monoxide.

Three Types of Boilers
Modern high-efficiency boilers from Enercare distribute heat throughout your room more effectively than older models and use less energy than ever before.
Common Questions About Boiler Replacement
The average price of a typical new natural gas or propane high-efficiency boiler in Ontario starts at $6,500. This includes standard installation from a fully insured and licensed company (including all licenses) and a one-year warranty.
The lifespan of a boiler is typically between 13 and 17 years, but age is only one factor to consider in making your decision to replace it. Other reasons include safety, how frequently it breaks down, the quality of installation and improper sizing.
Every home is unique and a number of factors impact the boiler size needed, including the size and age of your home, how many windows your home has, insulation, and specific homeowner requirements. To make sure you get the boiler size that best suits your needs, it’s crucial to have a professional visit your home to complete an evaluation to calculate heat loss and airflow. Incorrect sizing of a boiler may cause a shortened life of the equipment, higher utility costs and diminished comfort because your home is not warming up correctly. Combi boilers are a great space-saving option because of their compact size.
Boilers with an ENERGY STAR label can be up to 19% more efficient than models that simply meet the U.S. federal minimum standard for energy efficiency.1 A boiler’s efficiency rating is dependent on how much fuel is wasted and how much fuel is used to produce a specific amount of heat. This is measured by something called the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency Rating (A.F.U.E.). Boilers with an A.F.U.E. rating of 85% or higher are considered to be high efficiency. Boilers with an ENERGY STAR® label are tested to meet strict efficiency specifications and are certified by an independent third party. They perform the same as or better than standard products without compromising performance in any way.** Legal disclaimers: 1 – https://www.energystar.gov/products/most_efficient/boilers **- https://www.energystar.gov/products/heating_cooling/boilers
Homeowners could use standalone humidification units.
Boilers use natural gas so they require a licensed professional to replace the equipment.
With regular maintenance, a boiler can last up to 15 years. Age is the first reason to consider a replacement. Other things to consider are repair costs, efficiency ratings, malfunctioning equipment, leaks, or bad smells.
