Common Boiler Problems & Recommendations

Common Boiler Problems & Recommendations

A commonly overlooked aspect to your home heating system is your boiler. Boilers break and stop working for a variety of reasons, and all are equally important to give attention to quickly. At JM Heating & Cooling, we’re well-versed in repairs for all aspects of your home HVAC system and can offer services involving your boiler at a competitive price in Longmont and the Front Range.

Boiler problems can be avoided with regular service maintenance, and this should happen regularly to prevent major malfunctions and emergencies. Without a boiler, your home cannot stay as warm as usual, so making this appliance a priority is a big deal for homeowners as temperatures continue to drop. Inspections can unveil potential problem areas where boilers can easily break down on short notice. Experts recommend annual inspection and service of boiler units, but may be more frequent depending on the household use of the boiler and demands put on the appliance. These service appointments should also be scheduled with the boiler’s age in mind, and when buying a new unit, homeowners should not opt for the cheapest model, keeping in mind that these inexpensive units will in fact cost more to service over time in the long-term. Service contracts should include water flow checks, pressure tests, and carbon monoxide tests without exclusion.

When identifying problems with a boiler, common issues are linked back to thermostats in the home, power sources and water levels in the boiler. Pressure control is also a common issue for boiler units that service technicians identify. Oftentimes, simply listening to the sound a boiler makes over time can be a tell-tale sign a service technician should be called immediately, such as sounds getting louder or sputtering. Demand for boiler service appointments rise in the winter, so be sure to call as soon as possible to get on the list for a maintenance checkup or repair. Technicians can perform a flush to avoid mineral deposit buildup in your home’s boiler unit, and can check in on the unit’s other functional elements.

When it comes to boiler service, stick to HVAC experts. Engineering firms may offer boiler services, but prices do not tend to be competitive once consumer protection and warranty are considered. To ensure you’re getting top-quality, personalized, local service, give our staff at JM Heating & Cooling a call for Boiler Repair and Replacement in Longmont Colorado.

    I like how you mentioned that boiler problems can be avoided with regular maintenance. The weather has been rather chilly lately and we rely on our boiler to keep us warm. We haven’t really paid much attention to it and we were surprised that it has stopped working altogether. I’d be sure to follow the tips you shared to prevent this from happening again moving forward. For now, we’d have to rent one while ours is under repair.

    The thermostat in our homes seems a bit unstable because the temperature changes and it’s making everyone uncomfortable at home. My dad suggested hiring contractors for boiler replacement services and shared this article with us. It says that issues with the thermostat are a common problem with faulty boilers and needs to be replaced.

    It’s good to know that with regular maintenance we can avoid running into boiler problems. My wife and I are having issues with getting our boiler to work properly. We’ll have to look into a service that could possibly repair or replace our boiler. I think doing regular maintenance checkups would be a good thing to do from now on.

    Thanks for sharing these home heating and cooling problems! The Boiler in our home stopped working yesterday, and I’d like to at least diagnose the problem before looking for someone to fix it up. I’ll be sure to check the thermostat and air flow; I know that the air filters aren’t the problem. Hopefully, this will help me know exactly what the issue is!

    I like that you recommend maybe getting more services done in the wintertime. This is the time of the year where it will be working the hardest. You want to make sure it is efficient and functional.
