Quality Boiler Repair and Replacement
Boilers have the longest expected lifespan of any heating or cooling unit. They can easily last 30 or more years, with some surpassing 50 years without any significant problems. But when they do start to act up, it can be quite serious. If you are having any of the following issues with your boiler, call us immediately to get a professional boiler repair.
Common Boiler Problems
If your unit is showing signs of rusting, contact a professional tech right away. Rust is the number one killer of boiler systems. Once the metal becomes compromised a patch can be installed, but it will usually only get you a few more years of service. It’s a temporary fix to give you time to save up for a new unit.
Leaking from the boiler itself can be a tricky situation. Most leaks are due to failed seals in the water pump but other can happen from mineral build-ups in the radiant pipes. The pressure in the system increases and forces water out at its weakest point. The leak can be patched, but it is usually better to remove the affected line and replace it. Other leaks can be due to faulty bleed valves and pressure release valves.
- Failing Chimney Liner
Excessive heat or age can cause chimney liners to fail. The biggest problem with this is the damage that can be done to the structures surrounding the chimney. Warped wood can create weak points in the entire house roof structure.
- Water Pump Bearings Failing
If you are hearing a grinding sound whenever your boiler kicks on, you’ve got bad bearings in your water pump. This is a death sentence for the pump and it will need to be replaced in short order. If you have a very older boiler, the replacement part may not be available and you may be forced to purchase and entirely new boiler system
- Pilot Light Issues
One of the easier boiler repairs on the list is the pilot light. Most of the time we can simply clean the residue away from the pilot and everything will work just like new. However, if you have a rotary cup burner, it may be better to replace it with a more efficient model. If you are having pilot light issues please call us immediately.
- Thermostat Problems
Thermostats go bad. If yours does, we can replace it in about 10 minutes. Usually these problems present with uneven heating or a failure to reach or maintain the desired temperature in the home.
- Air In The Lines
Air in a closed system is a bad sign. You may hear pips banging or have areas furthest away from the boiler not receiving any heat. If these things happen, you have a leak. If you have an open system (like most residential boilers) then you may simply need to bleed the lines periodically to remove air form the system.
- Warped Boiler Doors
Cheap boiler doors can warp. Even steel doors can warp over time. If your boiler doors are warping they are releasing combustion gases into your home. These can include carbon monoxide – a very deadly gas. We can repair these leaks with high temperature caulk or a ceramic rope gasket. If the door is too warped to fix, we may be able to replace it with a new one or suggest you have a new boiler installed for your family’s safety.
- Carbon Build-Up
If you can’t remember the last time you had your boiler cleaned, there’s a good chance that there is significant carbon soot build-up. This reduces the efficiency of your burner and increased the amount of combustion gases produced. A simple cleaning can increase your boiler’s efficiency and increase indoor air quality in one go.

New Boiler Installation
We would much rather repair your old boiler than have to install a new one, but sometimes your boiler is too far gone to fix. In these cases, we can help you with a boiler replacement. Most of the time the newer unit will be smaller than the one currently installed in your home. That’s because older models had efficiencies between 45 and 60 percent while new ones are up to 85 percent efficient. Instead of a 170,000 BTU unit, you may only need a 120,000 BTU one. We will do a full square footage audit and calculate the correct size for your new unit. This is all included in the price of the install.
