If your commercial boiler is getting older, and you are considering replacing it because you are worried that it may fail, then you should learn more about commercial boiler life expectancy. No one wants to spend out on replacing an item that is working perfectly, nor does anyone want to be left in the lurch when their boiler breaks down unexpectedly.
Read our information about how long a well-maintained boiler will last, and the hints that it is giving you when it is coming to the end of its life. Rowlen has been in the boiler industry for many years, and the advice we provide below is based on our extensive experience.
The Average Lifespan Of a Commercial Boiler
Commercial boiler systems can typically last up to 20 years if they are well maintained and serviced regularly. However, most boilers will start to wane from around 15 years onwards, and while you may have a boiler that is working hard, it may be time to consider an upgrade when it begins to lose efficiency.
One of the simplest things you can do to keep up-to-date on the health of your commercial boiler is to have it serviced annually, and make use of a company that can provide the full range of services so you don’t have to waste time sourcing support when you need it the most.
Why Annual Services Are So Important
When it comes to prolonging the life of your commercial boiler, annual servicing is the best choice. It allows an engineer to check that everything is in good working order, and means that any problems can be found and dealt with long before they become significant issues.
When you have a service completed, the following things will always be checked:
- That there are no leaks in any of the fuel valves.
- That all controls are working correctly and safely.
- That there is no sign of any damage to any of the insulation.
- That there is no corrosion on the valves or pipes.
- That the ignition and flame are working well.
- That no sediment build-up needs to be cleared.
- That all the parts are clean and free of debris.
- That the system is in good working order.
By keeping all these things in check, your commercial boiler will work better, provide better efficiency, and last longer.
Signs That Your Boiler Is In Trouble
Sometimes commercial boilers work hard until the day they are replaced, and other times they stop working unexpectedly.
Here are some of the tell-tale signs that your boiler is in trouble and needs some help:
- Your energy bills begin to rocket, even if you are using the boiler in the same way that you always have.
- Unexplained leaks are emerging require continual repair.
- You can hear loud noises coming from the boiler.
- You may find that the heat being supplied is delivered unevenly across the day.
- Your boiler may begin to breakdown frequently and need ongoing repairs.
