What’s Included in Steam Boiler Service

How Can I Tell When My Steam Boiler Needs Replacement?

How do you know when your steam boiler needs to be replaced? There are a number of tell-tale signs that can indicate it’s time to install a new steam heating system.

  • Your energy bills are increasing. As systems age they become less efficient. Rising electricity bills can indicate that your system is aging out of efficient use.
  • The flame burns yellow instead of blue. This is a sign that the unit isn’t producing enough heat for operation. A blue flame indicates a healthy amount of heat coming through your system.
  • Your boiler isn’t keeping up with your needs. When you find yourself supplementing your heat with space heaters your steam boiler isn’t keeping up with your household demands. The problem could be due to your thermostat or your steam boiler could need replacement.

Heat went out of course on one of the coldest stretches we've had this year so far. Called first choice and they came out that morning! Justin was great! Went through the trouble codes and cleaned what he thought was the problem. Nothing major. But as we were talking after and paying for the bill, the furnace went out again. It was a head scratcher. Back to square one. He was there another half hour at least when he finally had a hunch and went outside and discovered we had covered up our intake outtake pipes for the furnace with tarps as we had covered up our outdoor furniture. Who knew. He showed me where the pipes were, I uncovered them and now everything works great. No extra charge either. I highly recommend first choice. Justin you are great!
