A water heater produces hot water that you use directly when you wash dishes or use the shower, for example. A boiler goes one step further and uses enough energy for that water to heat your home. Your heating system can then use the super hot water or steam in radiators or other radiant heating elements.
Think of a boiler like a car. At first, it’s cheap to repair and has good heating efficiency. But as the years go on, repairs become more expensive and it hogs more resources. Home efficiency requirements also change with improving technology, so there can come a point when an old boiler doesn’t meet them.
In general, you should consider upgrading to a new boiler if your system is 10 to 15 years old. Our technicians can assess your boiler in Staten Island, NY and advise you on when a good time to get a new system would be.
We wouldn’t recommend doing any boiler or heating system repairs yourself unless you have extensive maintenance experience. Modern boilers have a reset button that you can use in some circumstances, but never use it more than twice in a row if it doesn’t fix the problem.
It’s a better idea to call a professional, even if your boiler goes out at 2:00 am in February. Call us at Staten Island Plumbing for emergency service any time of the year.
Boilers are effective at heating a home for about 10 to 15 years. To get the best life out of your boiler, it’s a good idea to schedule an annual inspection service. The technician can assess the boiler, piping, and heating elements to make sure your system is as efficient as possible. This will keep it running smoothly for its lifetime.
Boilers are measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). An AFUE of 80 means 80% of the energy from fuel is transformed into heat and 20% is lost. New gas and oil units are required to have an AFUE of 78 or above, and energy-efficient units need a rating of at least 85.
Any 20-year-old boiler may only work at 60% or 50% heating efficiency, or even less. On top of that, the government regulations for energy consumption were different 20 years ago than they are today, so it probably didn’t start out with an equivalent heating efficiency rating as a modern boiler.

The thermocouple senses whether the pilot light is on or off. If the pilot light goes out, the thermocouple shuts the gas valve. A faulty thermocouple is dangerous because gas could escape from the boiler and pose a hazard. We can reduce this hazard with annual inspections and emergency repair.

The flue pipe transfers exhaust and vapor from the boiler to the outside. However, corrosion can weaken the joints and cause carbon monoxide to leak into your home. If you see any signs of rust or corrosion on your flue pipe, call us for boiler services right away.
