A well-maintained boiler can go for years without need a repair. Unfortunately, the time will come when the boiler will need a repair. That’s when you need the services of a boiler specialist.
Every winter, we get called out to make repairs on both residential and commercial boilers. In either case, we often see common issues over and over again. Some common reasons for boiler breakdowns include:
- Malfunctioning thermostat
- Low water levels
- Broken diaphragm
- Motorized valve failure
- Broken airlock
- Leaking boiler
- Broken thermocoupler
- Limescale buildup
- Air buildup
Our team of heating specialists can troubleshoot and repair almost every problem your boiler might have. Call us whenever you have a boiler problem.
Boiler Installation and Replacement
You can expect a well-maintained boiler to last at least 10 to 12 years, though some are still going after 20. At some point, however, you will start to need a repair, which will become more frequent as the system ages. Frequent breakdowns are a sign that it’s time to do a complete boiler replacement.
Here are a few other signs you need to schedule a replacement soon:
- The boiler is taking several minutes to heat up. It should only take seconds.
- The boiler is less than 90% efficient. Replacing the system will save you on long-term fuel costs.
- The boiler flame is yellow instead of blue. Yellow flame indicates carbon monoxide is being released, and that’s extremely dangerous.
- The boiler is leaking. A seal or a valve is broken. If not easily repaired, the entire boiler needs to be replaced.
- The fuel bill keeps climbing. As the boiler ages, it burns less efficiently. That means it uses more fuel.
- The boiler is heating some rooms and not others. The boiler’s controls may be worn out and failing.
- The boiler parts aren’t made anymore or are hard to find. You will pay more for parts that are difficult to find.
The worst time to replace a boiler is when it completely fails in the middle of winter. That makes every other time of year the best time for a boiler installation. If you need a boiler replacement, call Talmich today.
Why Should You Maintain Your Boiler
As with any other mechanical system, a boiler needs routine maintenance to make sure it continues to work for years to come. Once-a-year service by a trained boiler professional will keep it working efficiently, minimizing wear and tear. That keeps repair needs down and extends the life of the system.
Here’s a partial list of what we do when we do routine service on a boiler:
- Check the system’s water for sludge or limescale buildup
- Look for leaks
- Check the burners for damage, verify fuel pressure, and clean the burners
- Make sure the system is heating quickly
- Look for any repair needs
Scheduling routine boiler services will help keep your system working efficiently for many years to come. If your system needs some attention, schedule a tune-up and cleaning with Talmich Plumbing & Heating today.
When to Call for Professional Boiler Services
You depend on your boiler to keep your home or office warm during the coldest months. If it isn’t working, you can do some basic troubleshooting to see if it’s an easily solved issue. Here are two things to check:
- Check the thermostat. Make sure it’s set to heat, and that the temperature is set to where you want it.
- Check the breaker. The boiler has a circulating pump that uses electricity. If the breaker is tripped, reset it and see if it fixes the problem.
If neither of these things fixes the boiler trouble, you need to call in the professionals here at Talmich. We can identify the problem quickly and, in many cases, fix the problem right away. The problem could be something as simple as a broken thermostat. You won’t know until you call.
