These Issues Could Spell Disaster for Your Boiler

So you decide to head into your basement to grab something. After turning on the lights and walking down the stairs, you come across your boiler. It’s sitting there, still working like a charm, until you notice something that definitely isn’t normal—it’s leaking. There’s a malicious puddle sitting right under the system that’s giving you a headache and causing you to panic with phone calls to teams all over the county.

Well, while a puddle under the boiler is bad, it could be worse. We’re going to talk about some problems that could prompt boiler repair in Columbia City, IN today, in hopes that you call our team for help when you need it.

Puddles, leaks, corrosion … they are all potentially devastating for a boiler system, and they’re worth fixing with a team of trained professionals.

Boiler Leaks

If your boiler is leaking, chances are you need our help. Leaking boilers are not to be ignored, and they can lead to a whole host of other issues as well. Where there’s water, there’s mold growth, electrical outages, and the weakening of your home’s structural foundation among other problems. Not to mention the fact that without the water that’s needed in your boiler, it could reach incorrect pressure settings or start having trouble heating your home properly. Basically, a leaking boiler is going to cause you problems regardless of why it’s leaking.

Boilers need to be kept at the right temperature and pressure, and they need to be well-maintained over time. Without this kind of attention, a simple leak could start turning into a failed boiler and a home with no heat. Make sure you call our team to have your leaking boiler addressed as soon as possible.

Corrosion

Sometimes leaks can be caused by corrosion, and other times corrosion can be caused by leaks. Regardless of what caused it, corrosion can mean the deterioration of your boiler, the pipes connected to it, and everything else that you rely on for heat. A corroding boiler is a time bomb that’s just waiting to go off if it’s not addressed by a professional quickly. Corrosion can also mean a sharp decrease in system efficiency. If you’ve noticed that you’re paying more and more every month for subpar heat coming from your boiler, then you might need our help to address the issue.

Other Problems

What kinds of strange things do you notice about your boiler? Do you notice odd noises that sound like a hammer? This could be from drastic pressure changes in the boiler due to incorrect temperatures and a surplus of steam. Or perhaps you notice that certain parts of your home are warmer than others? This could be due to some of the pipes connected to your boiler not being heated to the right temperature. Either way, it’s up to you to stay vigilant and notice anything that seems off about your boiler system. Trust us, if anything seems wrong, just call our team and we’ll be there to provide comprehensive boiler repair in no time.
