Signs You May Need Your Boiler Inspected or Repaired

Signs your Boiler Needs to Be ReplacedA boiler or furnace is your home’s only method of heating itself. If your boiler isn’t working properly, you could be left in the cold.

Below is a list of five red flags that indicate that you may need to have your home’s boiler serviced, repaired, or replaced:

Old Age- Boilers require regular maintenance. If you move into a home that has an old boiler in it, it is always a good idea to have it checked out right away. Boilers age quickly and if they aren’t maintained properly, they will not work properly. The general rule of thumb for boilers is that they should be replaced every 15 years at the LATEST.

Strange Odor- Do you detect a strange odor coming from your boiler? Does it      resemble a metallic smell? This smell could very likely be carbon monoxide or any number of harmful gasses. In this event you should call a boiler repair service immediately.

No Heat or Too Much Heat- Lack of heat or too much heat is an easy sign that your boiler is malfunctioning. Often this is caused by sludge deposits inside the boiler which need to be treated by a boiler expert.
