Signs Your Boiler Needs to be Repaired

If you have a boiler in your home, it is important to be aware of common signs that it may need repair. Here are six signs that may indicate your boiler needs attention from a qualified technician:

  1. Unusual noises. A boiler should normally operate quietly, so if you start hearing loud grinding, thumping, or bubbling noises coming from the appliance, it could mean something is wrong.
  2. Leaks or condensation. If you notice any dripping coming from the unit or see condensation around the doors or windows near the boiler, this could be an indication of a problem and should not be ignored.
  3. Low water pressure. Low water pressure can result in uneven heating throughout your home and could lead to a broken heating element in the unit itself.
  4. Uneven heating. If some rooms in your home are hotter than others while the rest feel cold, it could mean there is an issue with your boiler that requires attention.
  5. Yellow flame color. The flame inside your gas-powered boiler should burn blue; if it is yellow instead, this indicates an unsafe level of carbon monoxide and requires immediate attention by an experienced professional.
  6. Color changes on pipes or other boiler components. Any discoloration on pipes connected to the unit can signify corrosion caused by heat and moisture buildup which needs to be addressed quickly.

It is important to address potential problems with your boiler promptly, as delays can lead to costly repairs or larger system damage. Whether issues with your thermostat, a broken diaphragm, or a motorized valve, Plumbing Solutions of Idaho's Boise boiler repair technicians can identify the source of the issues with your boiler and address the issue. 

What Is the Average Lifespan of a Boiler? 

Generally speaking, the average boiler should last between 10 and 15 years with proper maintenance along the way. However, the average lifespan of a boiler can vary depending on its type, size, and maintenance routine. For instance, electric boilers tend to have a longer lifespan than gas and steam models due to their lack of complexity, while combi boilers may last up to 20 years with regular care. 

The Importance of Boiler Maintenance

Boiler maintenance is an essential part of keeping your system in top condition and avoiding the need for frequent repairs. You should schedule a routine boiler maintenance appointment at least once a year as professional technicians can make sure everything is working correctly.

Routine maintenance can also benefit you by: 

  • Giving you peace of mind that you do not have a gas leak  
  • Prolonging your boiler’s lifespan 
  • Lowering your utility bill 
  • Increasing your home’s energy efficiency

What to Consider When Installing a New Boiler

Having a new boiler installed can be a major undertaking, so it is important to carefully consider the options available to determine which type of system best suits your needs. Here are some things to think about before going ahead with an installation:

  • Efficiency Ratings: Make sure you select a model that has an efficiency rating appropriate for your climate and energy needs. Look for boilers with Energy Star ratings or that meet established standards from the Department of Energy.
  • Type of Boiler: There are several types of boilers on the market, and you should determine what type will work best in your home based on the type of heating system you have in place.
  • Size Matters: It is important to select a boiler that is appropriately sized for your home; either too big or too small can lead to energy inefficiencies as well as reliability issues.
  • Cost and Maintenance Requirements: Different boilers require different levels of maintenance and will incur different ongoing costs associated with energy consumption, repair parts, etc. Consider these factors when comparing different models in order to get the best value for money in the long run.
  • Safety Standards & Warranties: Ensure that any boiler you purchase meets all safety requirements and comes with a good warranty in case anything goes wrong after installation is complete.

Types of Boilers

When it comes to boilers, there are several different types available to choose from and we service them all. Here is a rundown of the main types of boilers and their features: 

  1. Electric boilers. Electrical boilers provide heat by heating water which circulates through radiators in your home. They typically require less maintenance than other types of boilers and are relatively energy efficient, however, they can be expensive to install.
  2. Gas boilers. These systems use natural gas or propane to power the unit, and many come with features like modulating burners that allow you to adjust the temperature more precisely.
  3. Combi boilers. Also known as combination boilers, these systems both heat water and provide hot water for showers/taps without requiring a separate storage tank. This makes them ideal for homes with limited space.
  4. Steam boilers. Steam boilers produce steam which is then circulated throughout radiators in your home for heating purposes; this type of boiler is generally more efficient than other options but requires slightly more complex installation procedures and greater maintenance requirements over time.
