One of the best advantages of having a boiler to warm your home is that it can outlast most other heating systems. You’ll get 10–15 years from a heat pump, around 15 years for a gas furnace, and maybe 20 years from an electric furnace. But if you treat your gas boiler right, always having it maintained in fall and repaired when necessary, you may get over 20 years of effective service and possibly 30 years. That’s an impressive length of time for such a powerful appliance to work.
But any boiler’s time will run out. It’s important for you to recognize the warning signs that your boiler is reaching its retirement age. Otherwise you might end up with a failed boiler during a freezing mid-winter night! An over-the-hill boiler is also a money waster.
