Oil boiler with summertime leak
Seeking expert professional advice:
We discovered a small but steady leak in my mom's oil boiler last summer but the leak stopped at the beginning of the heating season. The boiler is approx. 25 years old. In one of the pics I'm including, you can see a small clear plastic dish by the corner of the cabinet. The leak was right at the corner coming from inside the unit. The little dish was emptied daily and rarely overflowed. My questions: Is there anyway to know how long the unit will continue to function? Is it likely that the unit will quit working abruptly leaving my mom without heat or hot water? She will have the option of converting to a gas boiler this coming winter, but a boiler replacement is a big expense for folks on fixed incomes. What would you do? Thanks in advance for any informed and knowledgeable guidance.
