Top signs you may need to replace your commercial boiler
Many businesses wait until their boiler is completely broken before they seek boiler replacement or repair services. A broken boiler is massively inconvenient for a business, as it can cause disruption and a loss of income. To avoid this disruption, look out for the below signs as they may indicate is it time to replace your commercial boiler before it breaks completely.
1. Raised energy bills
If you find the energy bills of your business are higher than usual, you should book a boiler service. As boilers age, they become less efficient, which can cause your energy bills to rise. You may not have even noticed the rise in your energy bills as boilers wear gradually over time, so you should examine whether or not your energy bills have been increasing steadily.
2. Unusual noises from a boiler
Your boiler can begin to make unusual noises for multiple reasons. For example, blockages, built-up pressure and low water pressure can cause your boiler to make loud, distracting noises. Noises caused by your boiler can travel, so you may first hear unusual noises from your pipes or water pump. If you hear unusual and loud noises from your boiler, you should consider contacting an expert who will be able to explain the noise and perform any maintenance necessary.
3. Age of the boiler
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to how long a boiler should last, it depends on what the boiler is made from and how regularly it has been serviced. The average life of a boiler, however, is between 15-20 years, so if your commercial boiler has been running for this long you may wish to consider replacing your boiler with a newer, more efficient model.
If you notice water near your commercial boiler, it may be because your boiler has begun to leak. Leaks can be caused by cracks within the body of the boiler and worn seals. Boiler leaks can be incredibly dangerous so you should contact a professional as soon as you suspect a commercial boiler may be leaking.
