Is it Time for a Boiler Repair?
Boilers are durable, reliable and energy efficient, but. like any other mechanical system, they will need repair at some point. Here are a couple potential boiler problems:
Leaks – Boilers use water to heat your home, so a leak may occur. The leak could be coming from a pump or a pressure relief valve, or even from condensation. Leaks can throw off the balance of pressure in your system and prevent the boiler from operating correctly. A leak coming from the boiler tank could mean that the boiler has started to corrode and needs to be replaced. The sooner you can have leaks repaired, the better it will be for your system and your comfort.
No Heat: A boiler may occasionally malfunction and stop providing heat. The problem could be related to the ignition of the jets on the burner, a failed electronic igniter/pilot light, trouble in the fuel line, a broken pump or safety switch, or you may just need a new thermostat. If your home is cold because the boiler and heating system have stopped working, it will require a trained professional contractor to fix it.
Is it Time for a New Boiler?
Old boilers are inefficient and often end up costing you a lot of time and money on repairs. A professional heating contractor will guide you through the decision-making process to help you choose between repairing the boiler you already own or investing in a new one. Here are several signs it may be time for a boiler replacement:
- Your current boiler is over 20 Years Old: The average lifespan of a cast iron water or steam boiler is 20 or more years. As it ages, it will incur more damage from everyday wear and tear and increase your repair bills. High efficiency condensing boilers have an expected lifecycle of 15 or more years.
- It needs constant repair: As stated above, older systems are more prone to damage. When you invest in a replacement boiler, you can expect your repair costs to drop dramatically.
- It has an AFUE rating below 80%: Older, outdated boilers are less efficient than modern systems and can cost you to spend a lot of money on fuel that is wasted.
