A boiler that is faulty and has repeated issues can be dangerous. You can prevent fires, explosions, and leaks of gas or carbon monoxide by having your boiler inspected by a trusted home services provider.

At Blue Mountain, we are the leading boiler experts and we can help with repairs and maintenance for your Waynesboro, Staunton, or Harrisonburg home.

Why Boiler Repair is Crucial

A boiler inspection is extremely important since carbon monoxide is a deadly gas that can kill in just a short period of time. In order to protect everyone in your house from carbon monoxide, it’s a good idea to have your boiler inspected regularly and install a carbon monoxide detector.

Signs Your Boiler Needs Repair

  • iconUnusual sounds: A lot of noise indicates that something is wrong. The pump or fan may need to be replaced if they are making clanging, whirring, or banging sounds. In contrast, whistling or gurgling sounds may indicate low water pressure in your boiler.
  • iconFoul odor: Carbon monoxide leaks are often accompanied by a foul odor. The smell of carbon monoxide is not the actual gas itself, but rather a result of your boiler not burning properly. A yellow flame is another sign that your boiler is leaking carbon dioxide. Normally, a boiler's flame should be blue.
  • iconIncreased heating bill: Your boiler may have a leak or another issue that requires repair. You can save money on heating costs by replacing your old boiler with a new, more energy-efficient one.
  • iconWater leaks: Water damage to your walls and floors can quickly spread after a leak. Check your boiler regularly, and if you notice any leaks, call a repair professional right away.

Your boiler is an integral part of your heating and water heating system. If it fails to work, it can cause major problems. If your boiler is malfunctioning, you could increase your utility bills, decrease your comfort, or even endanger your health. Pay attention to these signs.

Boiler Repairs

Compared to furnaces and heat pumps, boilers typically need fewer repairs, so they make excellent central heating systems. It is typically necessary to perform the following repairs when a repair is needed:

  • Kettling: Kettling is a common problem with hot water boilers. This should be the first sign that you need to call in a technician for an inspection if this happens to your heater. It could become a much bigger issue than it is now.
  • Leak repair: If the leak originates directly from the boiler tank, you’ve got a big problem on your hands. Most likely, the boiler is corroding through and needs to be replaced. It is possible, however, to repair a leak from a pressure relief valve or a pump. A leak may even be nothing more than condensation in some cases!
  • Changing corroded parts: When rust or corrosion gets into a boiler tank, it almost always means the boiler must be discarded and replaced. In some cases, a repair professional can rescue the boiler if corrosion is limited to replaceable parts, such as the heat exchanger.
