Signs of an Inefficient or Malfunctioning Boiler
High utility bills or inefficient heating may be the first noticeable signs of a boiler malfunction. Other signs you could need boiler repair or replacement include:
- Frequent shut-offs
- Loud clunking, clicking & whistling noises
- Leaks & drips at pipe joints
- Lime or rust buildup on valves
- Signs of soot around the burner
- Constant air bound radiators and baseboard heaters
If utility bills are climbing or your current boiler needs frequent repairs, don’t panic.
Boilers for Home Heating Systems
Unlike furnaces that heat and blow air through ducts in your home, boiler heating systems (also called hydronic systems) heat and circulate hot water. Once the water is hot, your system pipes it to radiators, baseboard heaters or in-floor tubing throughout the home. After heat is transferred through these devices, cooled water returns to the boiler to be reheated.
Many hydronic systems also act as a home’s hot water heater, supplying hot water for household use. Boiler systems rely on pumps to circulate the water, and newer systems feature improved controls like zoned thermostats, aquastats, valves and condensers to regulate circulation, water temperature and improved fuel efficiency.
