How Long Can I Expect Boilers to Last?

Asking about the lifespan of any household appliance usually receives conflicting answers based on the brand, type, and design of the unit. The lifespan of the average electric boiler is around 8 to 10 years while a gas boiler’s lifespan is about 10 to 15 years. While they may continue running for years after their average lifespan has ended, that doesn’t mean that it is not time for a new boiler installation, as they’ll be struggling to work efficiently, meaning you’ll get stuck with high utility bills.

What Issues Will I Begin to Notice?

As your boiler starts to show signs of trouble due to its age and possibly also poor maintenance or water quality, it will likely start developing several issues that will negatively impact the operation of the unit:

  • Sediment buildup: This is especially common if you live in an area that has high mineral content in their water supply. Sediment buildup causes the water tank to hold less water, but the main issue with sediment buildup in boilers is causing overheating.
  • Frequent failures: For example, the pilot light is a common source of problems in older units. Age, wear, and grime can significantly deteriorate a pilot light’s efficiency.
  • Corrosion: Corrosion severely weakens the integrity of your boiler and may cause leaks throughout the system. In some areas, the leaks caused by the corrosion can be fixed by replacing a few minor parts, but if the damage is too widespread or in areas that can’t be fixed it’s usually better to just replace the unit.

Why Should I Invest in Timely Repairs & Maintenance?

The biggest benefit of regular boiler repairs and maintenance is having your boiler run well for the entire duration of its lifespan. It also helps you prevent major and minor problems that can range from being annoying to deal with, to being extremely expensive. The benefit of replacing the unit when it has reached the end of its estimated life span is also avoiding future costly repairs and possible damages that could possibly occur due to age and wear.

In addition, letting a warranty run out can bring expensive consequences with it. Replacing the unit when its estimated life span has ended will allow you to get a brand-new warranty to help with future repair costs instead of possibly succumbing to hundreds or thousands of dollars in costs due to repairs and damages from a very old boiler.
