Every home needs some way to keep it warm when the evenings or seasons get cold. For many homes, that is a furnace that circulates warm air through a series of ducts. But some homes aren’t heated that way. Some use a boiler and radiator system to get hot air to each room. The way it works is that a boiler heats water and circulates it through a closed system throughout the house. This flows through a series of radiators in each room, which takes heat from the water and pushes it out into the room it is in. Boilers operate by heating up it’s closed water system with natural gas. The fact that boilers operate by pushing super heated water around the piping of your home, as well as the fact that it is all heated with natural gas, can make working on a boiler system extremely dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Experienced Boiler Repair and Replacement Plumbers
Furnaces aren’t perfect heating machines, and neither are boilers. Here are some of the problems you may experience with your boiler.
- Noisy Pipes / Boiler: The usual culprit is too much air in the system. If air gets trapped in your pipes, it can create annoying noises.
- Kettling: Similar to air in the system, but this is caused by hard water sediment buildup known as scaling. If lime and rust are collecting in your pipes, you should seek help from certified professional plumbers.
- Boiler Shutting Off Randomly: If your boiler keeps stopping before your home is properly heated, this is indicative of a deeper problem. The usual culprit is low water pressure, but it can be several other things as well, including open valves that should be closed.
- Boiler Doesn’t Fully Heat: If your boiler isn’t fully heating the water in the system, this can be a number of issues. The pipes could be corroded, or the system could have too much air in it. Certified plumbers can diagnose the problem more accurately for you.
