Signs Your Boiler Needs Repair
As a homeowner, it’s your responsibility to ensure the systems in your home stay in top condition. Part of this means knowing how to identify when certain systems need repairs. If you’ve never lived in a home with a boiler before, this may be a difficult task, which is why we’ve put together a list of telltale signs that your boiler requires attention. Be sure to call Hydro-Flo right away if you notice any of the following, as they’re likely a sign your system needs repair:
Boilers are usually relatively quiet, even when they’re working to heat your home. If you notice that yours has begun to make more noise, such as clunking, whirring, or banging, it’s time to call a professional. This could be a sign that the pump or fan inside the boiler is worn out.
A strange odor could be a sign that your boiler is not burning its fuel properly, which also means there could be a carbon monoxide leak. This is incredibly dangerous and could affect your family's health, so be sure to call a professional right away.
Water leaks are a sign that the boiler is no longer holding water properly. As the leak worsens, it could cause damage to your home. Be sure to check your boiler regularly for any signs of a leak, and call us if you notice any.
Your boiler’s primary function is to heat your home, so if it’s unable to do so, there is likely a problem. If you notice that your home remains cold even with the system running, you should have a professional take a look to ensure everything is working correctly.
Problems with your boiler can cause it to run inefficiently, which uses more energy. If you’ve noticed that your energy bills are higher, it may be because your system needs repair. Let a professional check it out and see if they can address the issue.
Why Hire a Professional for Boiler Repairs?
Your boiler is a complicated piece of equipment, and as such, must be handled with the utmost care and attention to detail. It’s incredibly important that all boiler repairs be completed by a professional with adequate experience and knowledge. Hiring a professional will ensure all issues are appropriately assessed and repaired following proper protocols. Attempting to complete repairs on your own can create unsafe conditions for you and your family, which is why it’s best to let a professional do the work. Be sure to call us for any boiler repairs.
Common Repairable Boiler Problems
When you encounter a problem with your boiler, you may be concerned that you’ll have to pay for a replacement. However, you may be able to hold on to your existing boiler longer than you think. There are many boiler issues that can be quickly addressed with repairs. Some of the most common repairable boiler problems include:
Boilers can develop small leaks from time to time, but as long as it is not happening frequently, this issue can usually be repaired by a professional.
The condensate pipe is used to remove waste gas and moisture the boiler creates. When the temperatures outside dip below freezing, this pipe can freeze, causing a blockage. However, the pipe can be quickly thawed to correct the issue.
Louder than normal noises are likely signs that the internal fan or pump is bad. This problem can be fixed by replacing the broken part.
If your boiler doesn't respond when the temperature drops below the thermostat setting, there's likely a problem somewhere in the system. A professional can identify the problem and fix it.
