When You Notice These Warning Signs, Schedule Repairs ASAP

Our neighbors up north can scoff all they want but we like to keep our homes warm too. Just because we don’t see several feet of snow doesn’t mean we don’t deserve reliable home heating. If your boiler is acting up, the sooner you get repairs knocked out the better off your home will be. Here are some warning signs that you should reach out to us for a fix:

  • Your boiler has started to make odd noises. Take some time to listen to your boiler the next time that it runs. A boiler in good condition really shouldn’t make much notice. If your system is, instead, making concerning sounds like whistling, crackling, popping, or gurgling, you will want to talk to a professional in the near future.
  • There are signs of a leak in your home. If you have a boiler heater, it uses water that is heated to cycle through the home and provide radiant heat. Where there is water though there is a chance for a leak. Over time, the pipes that cycle hot water in your home may wear down a bit and spring a leak. Make sure to take notes of any signs of a leak in your home so you can address it quickly.
  • The energy bills are on the rise. How much energy does your boiler need to get the job done? If it is the usual amount, you should be okay. However, if you’ve noticed that your energy bills spike whenever you run your boiler, this is a sign your heater is struggling.
  • It takes longer to heat the home up. Last but not least, take note of how long it takes for your home to warm up. Has the amount of time needed to heat things up gotten longer? If it does then it may mean that your boiler needs to be repaired.

Have you noticed these or any other troubles with your boiler heating system? If you have, then it makes sense that you’d want to get the issue resolved quickly. Our team can help you do just that.
