Signs Your Boiler Needs Repair

If your boiler completely stops heating your home or your water, you know that it has a problem. However, there are other signs it might display before it reaches that point. If you notice any of the signs below in your boiler, call American Vintage Home for service before a small issue develops into a major problem:

  • Leaks – A leak in your boiler system can be as simple as a loose connection or as complex as broken internal components. Call American Vintage Home to quickly locate and stop the leak.
  • Unusual sounds – Boilers make a range of normal noises as they operate. If you notice that yours is suddenly making new noises such as whistling, clunking, gurgling, or whooshing, don’t wait to get it repaired.
  • Unpleasant smells – If you smell odors like burning metal, oil, or plastic, it could mean that circuits or elements in your boiler are overheating. You may also smell natural gas if your unit has a gas leak. In both cases, turn your boiler off and call a professional immediately.
  • Insufficient heat – If you notice that the temperature of your water and/or home has dropped off, something could be keeping your boiler from working efficiently. Many problems can put stress on your boiler, so don’t wait until your heat disappears entirely before you call American Vintage Homes.
  • Inability to stay on – Your boiler will shut itself down if its sensors indicate that it is overheating. A boiler that turns itself off frequently might have a range of issues that are either making it overheat or causing it to think that overheating is occurring. A trained professional will be able to identify the issue.
