What Is the Life Span of a Hot Water Boiler?

A conventional cast iron, hot water boiler has long been a reliable choice for heating homes, apartments and offices. Most boiler last between 25 and 30 years, or even longer, as long as maintenance of the system is performed. The boiler itself can produce reliable and comfortable heat for many years.

As with most heating systems, periodic maintenance is recommended. Gaskets and gauges and air vents should be checked along with other  components once per year.

Flushing the hot water boiler and removing these minerals adds to the long life of the boiler system. If mineral deposits are not removed, their buildup can cause serious damage. One primary cause of premature boiler failure is the corrosion caused by a build up of these mineral deposits which leads to leaks.

A new hot water boiler can often have a 20 year warranty on the cast Iron and a one year or longer warranty on other parts of the unit.

A hot water boiler will keep heating your home for generations, if properly serviced and maintained. With a little care, the comfortable heat provided by a quality boiler system can be safely enjoyed for years to come.
