How To Know When You Need Boiler Repairs

When your boiler isn’t acting normal, you’ve probably thought about calling a professional to take a look at the system and perform any necessary maintenance or repairs. Here are some signs that your boiler should be repaired before any problems grow out of control:

Inconsistent Heating

Your boiler’s job is to provide consistent heating throughout your home and reach the temperature that you’ve set on your thermostat. If that isn’t happening, your boiler isn’t doing its job. A professional should inspect your system and find out if repairs can be made in order to bring consistent heating back to your home.

Strange Noises

Aside from the sounds when the system is initially starting up, you shouldn’t notice many noises coming from your boiler. If you’ve been hearing banging, clunking, or rattling noises from your boiler system, it could be a sign that a part within the boiler has malfunctioned or come loose. Reach out to the experts to find out what exactly is causing these sounds and how a fix can be best applied to your unit.

Unpleasant Odors

The first time that you use your heating system in a while, you’ll likely notice a burning smell coming from your vents as built-up dust begins to burn off within the boiler. However, any other strange smells coming from the boiler should be investigated, as this is out of the normal. Strange smells should be looked at immediately, as the smell could be caused by gas leaking from the system.

If your house or company is experiencing any of these issues with your heating unit, call us as soon as possible for reliable boiler maintenance and repairs.

Do You Need to Replace Your Boiler?

Boiler systems that develop issues can often be repaired with no problem. However, there are a few reasons why you might want to consider replacing your boiler, rather than opting to have it repaired. If any of these conditions apply to your boiler, consider replacing the system:

Boiler is Over 15 Years Old

Just like any appliance in your home, your heating systems have a lifespan. Boilers should typically be replaced after they’ve hit 15 years of age, as their performance will likely begin to significantly decrease, and they’ll need more frequent repairs.

Boiler Constantly Needs Repairs

Heating systems can rack up quite the bill if they require frequent repairs. If your unit needs frequent repairs, you’ll likely find yourself saving money by choosing to completely substitute the unit with a more modern and functional one.

Boiler is Leaking

Because boilers require water to heat homes, they’re prone to leaks. When your unit leaks, it can create serious and expensive water damage to the surrounding areas. While this can be repaired the first couple of times that it occurs, a boiler that consistently leaks water should be replaced by a high-efficiency model to limit the water damage and save yourself from greater damage down the road.

Financing Options Avaialble

We understand that a new hot water or steam boiler system is a large investment. That’s why we offer financing options to qualified customers.
