Signs that You Might Need Your Boiler Repaired

Heat Pump Repair
Here are some of the usual problems we encounter with hot water and steam boilers. While some of them you might be able to handle yourself, you’ll want to call Headwaters Heating and Cooling when you’re experiencing a more difficult heating repair or a significant boiler breakdown.

  • No Heat – There are several reasons why your boiler may have stopped producing heat. Inadequate water levels, worn-out parts or thermostat issues could all cause the problem.
  • Gurgling, Banging or Whistling Sounds – These are all signs of low water pressure, air in the system or impending part failure.
  • Inaccurate Thermostat – Double-check to see that it is set to “on” and the proper settings. If this doesn’t do the trick, you may need to have your thermostat replaced.
  • Pilot Light is Out – When your pilot light is out, it could mean that the natural gas is turned off, a draft has blown it out, a mineral deposit build-up, or a failing thermocouple.
  • Dripping or Leaking – Malfunctioning parts, rust, or worn-out seals can cause your system to leak.
  • Frozen Condensate Pipe – Because this pipe runs outside, there’s a chance of it freezing. Pouring warm water should fix this.
  • Low Pressure – When your pressure is too low, this could signify that a pressure valve needs replacing or that water is leaking. It could also be caused when radiators have been bled recently.
  • Kettling or Rumbling Noise – When lime and sludge accumulate in the heat exchanger, water flow becomes limited, causing it to overheat and boil.
  • On & Off – If your boiler keeps shutting down, it could indicate several issues, including a thermostat issue, your pump not properly circulating water, low water pressure or a closed valve restricting water flow.
  • Not Enough Heat – If your radiators are not getting hot, this could be caused by a build-up of air or sludge in the system.

The biggest cause of boiler breakdowns is skipping annual tune-ups. Headwaters Heating & Cooling can offer you a boiler maintenance plan that may help you avoid costly fixes while improving your boiler’s efficiency.

Deciding Whether to Repair Your Boiler or Replace it

If you’re getting tired of repairing your boiler and are considering replacing it with a newer, more efficient model; there are a few things to consider:

Safety – Has your unit become unsafe and a danger to your family?

Efficiency – Newer models are more energy-efficient, reducing your monthly utility bills.

Frequency of Repairs – Our customers love us, but if you’re seeing too much of us and the repairs are getting too frequent, maybe it’s time to think about an upgrade.

Headwaters can help you weigh these factors and consider your system’s future lifespan as you decide the ideal option for your home. The age of your boiler, annual repair bills and energy savings associated with newer models should all be factored into your decision.

Some new boiler systems come with an ENERGY STAR® rating, and some have unique features that improve safety, generate more heat from the fuel source or even eliminate the need for a pilot light.

If you’re in a situation where you need to decide whether to repair or upgrade your boiler, Headwaters can help you make a fully informed decision with no pressure. We value the trust you place in us, and we’ll earn it!
