3 COMMON BOILER REPAIRS

January 8, 2018

If you have a boiler in your home—a tank that uses hot water to heat the home rather than heated air—it may seem nearly invincible. Our customers love their home boilers, especially new high-efficiency systems. Radiant heating sends warmth throughout the home, rather than warming the air. Since water retains heat better than air, the difference in comfort levels is often astounding.

Boilers are long-lasting, durable systems. Unfortunately, that doesn’t make them invincible. Keep your boiler maintained and you may reduce the chances of needing repair, but these 3 repairs can still become necessary at any time. Be on the lookout for any signs of trouble!
