Warning signs it is time to repair your Boston boiler

Safe to say, any Boston homeowner does not spend most of their time thinking about their boiler – unless, of course, it is no longer doing its job to keep you warm and comfortable. 

Most boilers last between 10 to 15 years with proper maintenance, but like any mechanical system, they can experience issues that disrupt their performance and efficiency. 

The contractors affiliated with Plumbers 911 Boston are here to show you the warning signs that a boiler repair or replacement is inevitable before you experience that unexpected breakdown. 

Uneven heating

An old or malfunctioning boiler may struggle to distribute heat evenly throughout the home, leaving hot and cold spots in its wake. 

The need to constantly adjust the thermostat to compensate for uneven heating is a clear indication that issues such as blocked pipes, faulty valves or air pockets in the system are disrupting the balanced warmth you desire. 

Uneven lighting

A pilot light that frequently goes out or produces a weak or flickering flame may signal issues with the boiler’s ignition system or gas supply. 

It is essential to have a qualified technician inspect and repair your boiler promptly if you encounter pilot light problems, as these issues compromise both safety and efficiency. 

Strange noises

Underlying boiler issues can sometimes announce themselves through unusual sounds like banging, clanking, whistling or gurgling. 

These noises can indicate various problems that will only get worse if ignored, so it is essential to have a qualified technician diagnose the cause as soon as possible. 

Increased energy bills

A steady rise in utility costs could be a sign that your boiler is losing its efficiency to heat water, either through mineral buildup, worn-out components or incorrect settings. 

A qualified technician can assess your boiler’s performance and identify ways to enhance its efficiency and reduce energy consumption.
