Modern boilers deliver low-cost, high-comfort heating to your home or business. Because many of today’s boilers yield AFUE (Annualized Fuel Utilization Efficiency) ratings of over 95 percent, they are extremely efficient, which makes them an attractive alternative heating method for many. As time wears on, however, your hard-working boiler toils day after day to heat your home throughout the cold winter months until finally one day it simply wears out. And that’s when you need Griffith Energy Services to come to the rescue.
We’re proud to offer a variety of options for boiler replacement for those whose current boiler is outdated. While boiler life varies greatly based on a number of factors — such as amount and pattern of use, service, maintenance and type of boiler — if your boiler is more than 10 or 15 years old, it may be time to consider an upgrade. Today’s high-tech boilers are far more energy-efficient than earlier models, which, when compared with their modern counterparts’ mid-nineties ratings, had only a 55 to 65 percent AFUE. While better-maintained boilers should last longer, like any other well-used HVAC equipment, they will eventually wear out. At Griffith Energy Services, we can help you choose the right replacement boiler for your home or business, while providing fast, safe installation service at one of our 14 locations scattered throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

When to Install a New Boiler
A boiler that’s well cared for may last up to 30 years. To extend the lifespan of your boiler, schedule annual maintenance visits. These tune-ups will help you get as many years from your boiler as possible. Around the 15-year mark, you should start paying more attention to your boiler’s operation and consider whether it’s time for a newer model.
You will likely see some warning signs as your boiler nears the end of its lifespan. These may include:
- An unexplained increase in your utility bills
- Uneven heating throughout the home
- Water spots on the floor around your boiler
- Noisy operation
