Common Boiler Problems that Need Repair

The great thing about boilers is that they are reliable machines, built to last for many years. Yet, that doesn’t mean you won’t face an issues or two during the lifetime of your boiler. If your boiler is experiencing any of the problems below, it’s best to call for repairs as soon as possible.

  • The boiler isn’t firing up: If it won’t fire up, it won’t work. It’s as simple as that. Unfortunately, the source of the problem most likely isn’t that simple, as this issue can be caused by many different things. The boiler’s motorized valves could be broken, the air locks could be broken, the thermostat could be set incorrectly (or not working properly), or the boiler could have a broken pump. One technicians can help you find the root of this problem.
  • The boiler is making loud noises: Although people often think that boilers are just noisy machines that constantly make clanging noises, you should know (as a boiler owner) that this just isn’t true. Loud banging or rattling could mean that there is a buildup of hard water deposits in your boiler; if the water in the boiler is trying to move through smaller passages, it will cause loud noises. However, if the boilers moving parts need to be lubricated, this will cause a grinding noise.
  • The boiler’s pilot light keeps going out: Your boiler’s pilot light should not continuously go out. If this is happening in your home, your boiler could be suffering from a broken thermocouple or air seal.
  • The boiler is leaking: Does your boiler look like it’s sitting in a small pool of water? There may be a leak from the pump, the expansion tank, or the boiler tank.

As soon as you notice anything mentioned on this list, or anything else out of the ordinary happening with your boiler, call one of our professional HVAC contractors at James A. Wheat & Sons as soon as possible!
