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.
