Boiler System Repair
Boilers are very durable and capable of withstanding years of use before breaking down. However, if the age of your boiler is catching up to it, or if your boiler is acting strange, you may need boiler repair services.
If you think your boiler is in need of service, call the Pittsburgh area boiler repair technicians at Boehmer Heating & Cooling. Our team of highly skilled technicians regularly repairs boilers in homes all over the area. When your boiler fails it’s usually at the coldest and worst possible time, so we’ll be over quickly to get your heat flowing again in no time.
Checking for Boiler Problems
Newer boilers tend to run quieter than those crafted thirty or forty years ago. So, you may not notice a problem with your boiler at first. That’s why it’s so important for you to pay close attention to your boiler and the level of heat in your home. Uneven or unsteady heating in different areas of your home will likely be the first sign of a problem.
If the boiler simply cannot keep up with your heating needs, it’s probably not providing enough hot water due to clogged pipes or a clogged flue. It’s good to have a trained professional check your system out.
Another common problem is high pressure in your boiler. Most residential boilers operate at between 12 and 15 lbs. of pressure. If your boiler is running high, call a service technician immediately. There may be something significantly wrong with your boiler and it can present a danger if not attended to promptly.
You should also have a carbon monoxide detector installed in your boiler room and in your living space. It’s rare, but a blocked flue or a leak in your system can start to pour fumes and carbon monoxide into your home. Even small leaks can build up over time and present a danger to your family. If your carbon monoxide detector ever goes off, you and others in the household leave and call the gas company or a boiler service repair person immediately.
Boiler Repairs for Newer Systems
While most boiler repairs are for older systems, occasionally a new boiler or radiators will need servicing.
It’s important to keep a close eye on your boiler at all times. Boiler repairs can be expensive and time consuming if the problem is allowed to progress. By paying close attention to the warning signs of an ailing boiler, you can avoid the worst of the situation. The last thing any homeowner wants is to be left without heat during the middle of winter.
