FAQs Boiler Repairs in Auburn

What are some signs I need a boiler repair?

Problems you might run into with a boiler that needs to be repaired are boiler leaks, low boiler pressure, boiler kettling, no heat or hot water, strange noises coming from the boiler, and pilot light going out.

Is it better to get a boiler repair or a boiler replacement?

It is more cost-effective to get a boiler repair rather than a boiler replacement. Generally speaking, the average lifespan of many boilers is around 15 years. If your boiler is older than this, then you may want to consider upgrading your system.

What steps can I take to prevent my boiler from breaking down?

These steps are crucial to take if you want to prolong your boiler’s life and lessen the chances of having to get an emergency boiler repair.

  • Frequently observe the pressure gauge.  If the boiler is being strained, it will show in the pressure gauge. An easy way to check this is by looking at the boiler gauge every now and then to see if it’s getting too high.
  • Take time to bleed the radiators.  Regularly bleeding the radiators will help remove air bubbles that can build up within your boiler. If enough bubbles build up in your boiler, it can cause it to overheat.
  • Regularly get your boiler serviced. You can trust a certified and experienced technician to identify any potential issues that your boiler might face, and take the necessary steps to avoid those issues.
