Does Your Boiler Need to Be Repaired?

In some situations, you might be unsure when to call in the professionals. Below, we’ll provide you with some information that can help you determine when a problem is a serious concern.

Pressing Issues

If your heat or hot water stops working suddenly, then there’s obviously a problem. It may be as simple as turning the system’s thermostat up, but more often than not, there’s something more serious going on. It may be a pressure issue, a broken valve, or something more significant that needs to be addressed.

Another situation in which the red flag will be clear is when loud noises are being made by your boiler. Whistling and banging noises are never a good sign, and they may be caused by poorly fit pipes or even pump failure.

Whenever you notice a leak, it’s important to take immediate action. Corrosion is a common problem that our Fieldale customers call us for at McKinney Heating & Air Conditioning, and our skilled and knowledgeable team can examine everything to determine the extent of the damage.

Some Things to Think About

Sometimes, the situation isn’t so clear. Maybe you’re starting to notice how expensive your heating bills have become. If there’s a significant jump from one billing cycle to the next, then there may be a problem that your boiler is working hard to compensate for.

Likewise, you may be experiencing uneven heating. For example, one room may be much colder or hotter than others. In this case, there may be damage to a particular air duct. This could cause your boiler to work harder than it’s designed to, and that overload may lead to bigger problems down the road.
