If you're looking to overhaul your boiler room with an energy efficient upgrade, now is the time to start thinking about it. 

From a boiler replacement to a burner retrofit, our sales group can provide expert recommendations. You may think that a boiler replacement project is expensive but it will be cost effective in the long run when you no longer need to repair the same parts over and over. Replacing your boiler leads to lower maintenance and repair costs as well as increased efficiencies. Right now, utility companies are offering incentives to assist in the cost of making your boiler room more energy efficient. 

We've put together a list of boiler room issues that let you know it's most likely time for an upgrade.

Signs it’s time to upgrade your condensing boiler:

  • Continuous lockouts
  • Specific age (your boiler is more than 20 years old)
  • Lack of maintenance, including condensate trap neglect
  • Not operating the boiler system per the building system design
  • Breeching corrosion
  • Building operating expectations were altered due to new tenant requirements
  • Improper initial installation
  • Water quality that doesn’t meet manufacturer requirements

Signs it’s time to upgrade your cast iron/firetube/watertube boiler:

  • Lack of maintenance
  • Significant thermal stress over time
  • Improper initial installation
  • Evidence of burn marks on boiler jackets and/or doors
  • Lack of safety checks
  • Lack of chemical treatment
  • Poor burner performance
