March is just around the corner from us right now…but it certainly doesn’t feel that way right now! How is your boiler holding up through this winter? Now is a good time to invest in boiler repair — you can make it through the end of the winter and all the way through next year as well!
If you’ve had the same boiler since you moved into your home, or if your aren’t really sure when the last time you had your boiler inspected, serviced, or replaced, then you might want to start thinking about boiler repair.

Check out some of the most common signs that your boiler is on its last legs. Do any of the following apply to your own heating system?
The 3 Signs You Need Boiler Repair
If you start to see any of the following, give Central Plumbing, Heating, and Air a call today:
- Bad Smells– Your boiler burns fuel in order to create heat, and if any of that combustion is incomplete or contaminated, your indoor air quality can be effected. Some of the byproduct gasses of a broken furnace, such as carbon monoxide, are extremely dangerous!
- Puddles– Don’t just put a pot under that drip! A boiler that leaks is generally a boiler that has efficiency problems, and you’ll wind up paying a lot more by wasting money on higher energy bills than you would if you simply got the repair.
- Noisiness– A certain amount of humming and sound is normal, but once you start hearing banging, clanging, or other loud noise you probably should get the device checked out. Hissing noises are a bad sign too, as they are generally associated with sludge deposits in the machine.
Why Do Good Boilers Go Bad?
So what causes boilers to need boiler repair? The main two factors that reduce the life expectancy and efficiency of boilers are corrosion and pressure.
Over time, rust and corrosion start to set in on the critical equipment of your boiler, causing it to function less effectively and be more prone to failure. Corrosive elements may be in the water that your boiler heats in order to create steam or radiant heat for your floors. Even if your water is clean, though, sometimes pressure can build up to be too much for the device, causing pieces to burst or leak.
If you experience any of the above problems with your boiler, call the boiler repair experts at Central Plumbing, Heating, and Air for service today!
