Boiler Replacement in Wisconsin
Here to Help You Get Through the Winter
There are a lot of houses in Southeast Wisconsin, especially older homes, that get their heat from boilers rather than furnaces. As opposed to pumping warm air into your home through ducts, boilers warm water through a heating component and then use that water to radiate heat throughout your home. These systems are typically powered by gas, though they can also run on oil. While older boilers generally have around 56-70% Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE), modern, energy-efficient boilers can operate at as high as 90-98.5% AFUE.
If your boiler is old and increasingly less efficient, it may be time to call Southport Home Services. We offer boiler replacement in Wisconsin designed to get your home through the cold winters while keeping your energy costs as low as possible.

Do I Need to Replace My Boiler?
Wisconsin winters regularly dip into temperatures below freezing, meaning it’s too cold in this state not to have a working heater. With today’s energy-efficient options, boilers are a good option for those looking to install a heating system for the first time—especially if you are moving into a house without ductwork. However, if you live in an older home and have had the same unit for years, it’s especially important that you consider upgrading to a new boiler—lest you end up waking one freezing winter’s morning to find your system has stopped working! Watch out for the signs that you need boiler replacement, and remember, Southport can offer all the top-of-the-line options you’re looking for!
Signs you need to replace your boiler include:
- Your boiler is 20-years-old or older: While well-maintained boilers tend to last much longer than furnaces, and have even been known to survive for up to 30 years, the average lifespan for a boiler is 15-20 years. If your boiler is within the 15-20 year-mark, it may be time to consider replacing it—especially if it has not had regular maintenance. You will generally know when your system gets this old, because there will also be signs like—
- Your boiler constantly needs repairs: Boilers that need to be repaired more than twice a year are generally on their way out. Over time, your system can only put up with so much wear and tear, forcing you to pay for more and more repairs. Eventually, there comes a point where it is simply more cost-efficient to just replace the system than to keep it running. And in addition to repair expenses, you may also notice…
- Your energy bills keep going up: As your boiler ages, it will have to work harder to heat your whole household, causing your energy bills to rise. For instance, did you know that problems like scale build-up can force your boiler to use 7% more energy? That means your heating costs will go up by 7%! Ultimately, unless you want to spend more money for less efficient heating, there comes a point where it is cheaper to just replace your boiler altogether.
- Your burners are emitting yellow flames rather than blue ones: Your boiler flames should always be blue. If the burners in your boiler are emitting yellow flames rather than blue ones, it means there is a problem with your boiler’s fuel source. This happens sometimes when dirt and soot clog the burners, preventing the proper mixture of gas and oxygen that occurs during the combustion process. Improper combustion can lead to carbon monoxide—a colorless, odorless, but very poisonous gas—being released into your air, so if you notice that your boiler’s flame is yellow, call an experienced technician ASAP.
- Your boiler leaks frequently: As your boiler wears down over time, you may notice it developing small cracks. These cracks can in turn lead to leaks, which may cause major water damage for your property. This may happen as a result of corrosion, damaged seals, or water pressure that is too high. No matter what the cause is though, if the body of your boiler is damaged enough where it starts to leak, it’s almost certainly time to call for a replacement.
