Does Your Boiler Need Repairs?

The boiler in your home will show signs that it needs to be repaired in a number of ways. Signs that your boiler needs repair include:

Leaks

If you have water coming from your boiler, the tank may be corroded and need to be replaced. You might have a valve leak that can be repaired easily, or it could be an issue with the integrity of your boiler system. A technician will check over your boiler to determine what repairs are needed.

Ineffective Heating

As your boiler gets older, it will become less efficient at heating your home. If your heat is on and your home doesn’t get warm enough, your boiler will need to be repaired. If it is more than 20 years old, it is likely your boiler needs to be replaced if it keeps breaking down.

Uneven Temperatures

Uneven heat distribution throughout your home is an indication that your boiler is not working correctly. If your boiler is not able to keep up with the heating needs of your home, it’s time to have your boiler serviced to see if anything can be repaired.

Short Cycling

If your heat turns on and off without causing any changes to the temperature in your home, it is short cycling. This can be caused by a boiler that is too large for the area it needs to keep warm, or due to a thermostat that is out of calibration. Rising energy costs can indicate that short cycling is occurring.

Gurgling Sounds

If you hear gurgling noises coming out of your boiler, this can mean there is air trapped in your system or there is some type of blockage in your boiler. Your radiators may need to have all the water removed and replaced in order to clean out the system.

How Does a Boiler Work?

Boilers are a type of heating system that heats up hot water and transports the water or steam through pipes to your radiators. Once the hot water reaches your radiators, they will warm up and steam often comes out. Hot water and steam produce heat and radiate hot air throughout the home. Boilers are an efficient way to heat your home, and keep humidity levels up during the cold winter months.

Are Boilers Effective Heating Systems?

Boilers are a traditional and effective way to heat your home when the temperature gets cold. When you already have a radiator system and boiler in your home, replacing a broken boiler with a new boiler is your most cost-effective option to keep your home warm. If you are going with a new heat system installation, a boiler is still an excellent option. 

A furnace is also another heating option, which uses a system of ductwork instead of radiators to keep your home warm. This could be expensive if you do not have ductwork already installed in your home. Heat pumps and mini splits do not require ductwork to keep your home comfortable, but they do not perform as well in extreme temperatures. Boilers give you an affordable way to keep your home warm, and are typically fueled by oil or natural gas.
