Call a Pro For…

Here are some problems that you should contact a professional for.

Leaks

The number one sign that you should contact a professional for work on your boiler is a leak. A boiler leak is usually caused by an issue with some internal component. Your boiler has a pressure valve or pump seal and if something goes awry with either of these parts, it’s easy for a leak to spring within your system. This is when you should rely on a professional. We’ll replace the part and repair the system.

A Lack of Heat

Are you having trouble getting your home to heat thoroughly or evenly? This isn’t something you should have to worry about if you have a boiler installed in your home. If your heat is lacking, then it’s a sign you need to turn to a professional. Make sure that your heater is equipped to match the needs of your home.

An Unresponsive Thermostat

When you turn your thermostat on to get your boiler going, do you notice that your boiler is either unresponsive or defiant? If your boiler isn’t responding to your home’s thermostat, then this might point to electrical issues or misfires with your home’s boiler. This is a problem. We can handle this for you as soon as possible and get your heater back in shape before the weather heats up for spring.

Odd Noises

Have you heard some odd noises coming from your home’s boiler? These are a few sounds you might hear:

  • Banging
  • Whistling
  • Gurgling

It’s usual for your boiler to make some noise while it operates, but it should never make noises that are so loud that they’re alarming. There’s also trouble if you notice new sounds. Your boiler is a machine that should typically operate in a way that’s familiar to you. If it starts with new behaviors, then this is typically a sign of trouble.

Low Pressure

The water pressure in your heating system should be consistent. If you head over to your boiler and notice that the pressure gauge has dropped, then it indicates low pressure. A loss of pressure might be a sign of a leak or a malfunctioning part.
