How Do You Know If You Need Boiler Repairs?
While the most obvious signs are when you have no heat or you have very little heat in one or more areas of the home, there are a few things to look out for that are less noticeable. Things like leaks around your boiler, strange noises or sounds during operation, or short cycling can all indicate you need repairs. Other common culprits like failing gas valves, ignition issues, burner or flame sensor issues, and others will require a licensed technician to diagnose and perform a repair.
In summary, you can often tell something is wrong with your boiler by paying attention to the following signs:
- Loud noises or smells coming from your boiler or baseboards
- Water leaks around the boiler
- No heat in one area of your home or not heat at all throughout your home
- Boiler short cycles by turning on and off quickly
