Signs Your Boiler Needs Maintenance or Repairs

No appliance lasts forever, unfortunately, but you can at least avoid springing for a premature boiler or heat pump replacement by providing it with the maintenance or repairs it needs from Heating and Cooling Factor LLC’s expert technicians. Of course, to get the maintenance or repairs your boiler needs involves knowing what the telltale signs are. So, to make sure your boiler doesn’t rapidly deteriorate, these are the signs that you need to call (877) 773-9289 and schedule a boiler inspection as soon as possible.

No hot water. The most obvious sign that there is something wrong with your boiler is that you are suddenly without any hot water. You might notice this because there is no hot water coming out of the pipes or there’s no heat coming from your radiators, or both. If the city of Newark is doing infrastructure work nearby, then this is a surefire sign that there is something wrong with your boiler. The first thing we’ll check when you call us in is the pressure gauge. If the pressure is lower than one, it’s definitely a pressure issue.

Otherwise, it might be a broken part or valve inside the boiler that needs replacing.

Banging noises. There is nothing worse than getting woken up in the middle of the night because strange and excessively loud banging noises from your boiler are echoing throughout your home. Sometimes, these awful banging noises are the result of air in the system. If it is air in the system causing the banging, whistling or gurgling sounds, it’s not that serious.

What is serious is that the cause of the banging could be that your pipes aren’t fitted correctly and they knock together as heated air and water goes through them. If this is the problem, we can easily refit or adjust your boiler’s pipes. Another common reason your boiler is creating these frightening banging noises is because the pump is failing. As your boiler’s pump deteriorates, it gets louder and louder. Let us take a look and we will determine the nature of the problem and the best way to fix it.

Leaking or dripping. Since your boiler’s purpose is to heat water, and hot water corrodes metal much faster than cold water, leaks are almost always caused by corrosion. Of course, there are pieces and parts that can corrode faster than others. For example, the pipes and valves are more likely to corrode sooner than other pieces. If you have spotted water pooling around your boiler, give us a call today and we will conduct a thorough inspection to find all leaks and areas that may be susceptible to leaks while devising a way to move forward.

These are the most common signs that your boiler requires maintenance, however if you suspect that your boiler isn’t performing at maximum efficiency, give us a call. We will be glad to conduct a thorough inspection of your system to make sure any deficiencies are corrected.

Most Common Types of Boilers Seen in the Average Newark Home

If you’re like most Newark homeowners, you likely moved into your home without knowing exactly what sort of boiler you have—which is understandable. As long as your boiler is working, you’re not too likely to care about the details of what heats your home. Spending time and money on a boiler isn’t as glamorous or attractive as many of the other home renovation projects you might choose to undertake.

However, Heat & Cooling Factor, LLC wants you to know few things are as important to the safety of your home as a functioning boiler. Without heat, your home becomes a glorified garage, and isn’t suited to protect you or your family from the harsh Newark winters.

So knowing your boiler is crucial when it comes to performing regular maintenance or repairs. Or, if your boiler is breaking down from use or the passing of time and you’re thinking of replacing it with a new one, read this guide by Heat & Cooling Factor, LLC to learn more about your options!

Oil-Fired Boiler

This is the classic—the traditional model, the old reliable, the standard that generations of families have relied on. Called gas-fired or oil-fired, this boiler type uses fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas to heat water and distribute it around your home.

Unfortunately, time has not been kind to the oil-fired boiler. Not only is it bad for the environment to burn fossil fuels, but oil-fired boilers are less efficient than their newer counterparts, costing you more money on your monthly power bill.

Electric Boiler

Electric boilers heat water with a coil like many modern hot water heaters. You pull power from the electric grid just as you do for your other appliances, so the cost of keeping your home warm will be there on your power bill every month.

The big advantage? They’re the easiest boiler to install. An electric boiler needs no flue or gas-certified engineer like an oil-fired boiler requires, making them very easy to replace or repair.

Combi Boiler

Combi boilers, or combination boilers, combine the power of a home heating system with space efficiency by rolling your home hot water heater into the model. Traditionally, hot water used to heat your home and hot water used for bathing or washing dishes came from different sources. But considering they’re both heated the same way, some genius figured out how much money Newark homeowners could save by combining the two. And so this high-efficiency boiler continues to take over the basements of home and business owners across the country looking to reduce waste and save money.

Condensing Boiler

Condensing boilers are the latest product of the green revolution. They trap the steam that normally comes off the boiler and reuses that heat to become incredibly energy efficient. While oil-fired or electric boilers run rates of 40-60% efficiency, condensing boilers are incredibly efficient at 90%! Sure, you’ll pay more up front to install a new boiler, but you’ll also benefit from government subsidies and tax cuts encouraging better energy use. And your home heating bill will drop significantly. Win-win, we at Heat & Cooling Factor, LLC would say!

Verify Boiler Safety

A boiler that has seen better days not only wastes money and heats your home unevenly, but can be the source of some serious safety hazards. Protect your property and peace of mind with an annual boiler inspection that includes an essential carbon monoxide safety check.

Installing a New Boiler or Heat Pump

If your present heating system is out of date, it may be functioning with a faulty combustion process that is costing you quite a bit of extra cash. Although repair and regular maintenance may keep your heat pump or boiler going for a while longer, a new more efficient model will end up costing much less than the continued expense for service, new parts and wasteful energy consumption. Today's new energy efficient models allow consumers to save hundreds of dollars per year on heating bills.
