Boehmer Heating & Cooling - Boiler Repair

Boiler System Repair

When we list the advantages that boilers offer to homeowners, one that ranks high is the small number of repairs that they may require over their lifespans. Boilers use fewer mechanical parts than furnaces or heat pumps, and with less stress placed on them there is a reduce chance of malfunctions.

However, there is no possible way to reduce the chance of malfunctions to zero, even with the finest regular maintenance for the boiler. You might run into a repair issue with your boiler that will need the assistance of trained HVAC technicians.

Signs That You Should Call for Boiler Repair

The most obvious warning that your boiler must be fixed is when it stops working entirely and you get no warmth from any of the radiators or baseboard heaters. You clearly need to make an emergency repair call when that happens. Other indications that a boiler needs repair work are more subtle, and if you pick up on them, they will give you time to jump ahead of much worse problems to come:

  • Rumbling sounds from the tank: Any strange noise coming from your boiler (booming, pinging sounds from the pipes) is often a sign of a malfunction. But a rumbling tank is among the most common. Don’t worry about the boiler suddenly bursting on you—this is very rare. However, the noise usually indicates the boiler is overheating, and this needs to be taken care of right away.
  • Sings of water leakage: Boilers can relieve some pressure through a release valve, but this is the only place you should see water escaping from the tank. If you find water collecting in a pool under the boiler, you must have repair technicians on the job right away.
  • Any indication of corrosion: Corrosion is the last thing you want to see on a boiler’s tank. If it spreads too far, it often requires a complete system replacement.

Professional Boiler Repair Services

As with most heating systems, the reason that it’s vital to have professionals handle the repairs is because often it is difficult to determine what is behind the performance problem in the first place. A technician looking over a boiler that is losing its heating ability must determine if the issue originates from failing burners, too much sediment in the tank, a broken circulator pump, or even trouble in the thermostat. You can leave it to the repair experts to find exactly what needs to be fixed and get the job done so your boiler can get back to work.
