Signs You Need a Boiler Replacement

Boilers are unlike other popular heating systems because they don’t use forced air to heat your home. Instead, they use hot water and radiators to gently heat the air without drying it out. With most forced air HVAC systems, it’s easy to tell when you need to replace your system—your blower will stop working, you’ll have uneven heating from room to room, etc. Since boilers use hot water, however, things are a little different. If you suspect your boiler may be on the verge of a breakdown, look for some of the following signs:

Smells

You shouldn’t have any weird or bad odors coming from your boiler—if you do, this is almost always a sure sign you need to get your boiler replaced. A gas leak from your boiler can be a major issue. Weird smells can also be a sign that your ventilation system is broken, which can lead to bigger problems, including carbon monoxide leaks.

Leaking Water

Even small water leaks within your boiler can be indicative of major problems on the horizon. Leaving this problem unattended will only cause the leaks to get bigger, potentially leading to water damage or pipe failure.

Uneven Temperatures

If the water flowing through your radiators is too hot or too cold, it often means there’s an issue with circulation somewhere in your piping system. The water is not being evenly heated, leaving you with water (and a home!) that may be too hot or too cold.

Hissing or Other Noises

Hissing noises are often associated with iron or sludge deposits that cause uneven water distribution and can result in the boiler overheating and shutting down. So, any time that you hear weird noises coming from your boiler, you should have it inspected—a professional can advise you about the best course of action.

Boiler Replacement Tips

If you’re having any of the above issues with your boiler, it might be time to start considering a boiler replacement. Determining the type of boiler you need depends on a variety of factors, including:

  • Type of building (i.e. house, apartment, condominium, etc.)
  • Size of the building
  • Amount of insulation
  • Number of floors
  • Number and type of windows

The boiler pros at James A. Wheat & Sons know how to successfully match your home to a new boiler so that it will be suited to your needs and budget.
