3 Signs That Your Boiler Needs Repairs

January 4th, 2021

Your home’s oil boiler is a crucial tool that helps keep your home safe and comfortable throughout the year. Oil boilers work in a similar fashion to gas and electric boilers — they burn oil inside of a combustion chamber to warm up water inside of your boiler, which is then transferred throughout your home in the form of steam. Oil boilers tend to be more expensive than gasoline boilers, which makes it especially important to call for boiler repair in Philadelphia as soon as you notice a problem.

Here are a few of the most common signs of boiler damage you might see in your oil boiler.

  • Unusual sounds. One of the earliest signs of boiler damage is unusual sounds coming from inside of the boiler. If you notice a whirling or whistling noise coming from your oil boiler, the chances are that it’s in trouble and needs a professional repair.
  • Delays in heating. As soon as you turn on your boiler, you should notice heat being produced. If your home is seeing a delay in heating or if your boiler isn’t heating your home at all, you should call for a boiler repair or replacement.
  • An older boiler. Like your air conditioning system, washing machine, refrigerator, and other parts of your home, your boiler wasn’t designed to last forever. If you’ve never replaced your boiler since you moved into your home, you should take steps to help extend its life with regular maintenance and part replacements. If you live in an older home, you might need to replace your boiler altogether if it suddenly fails to heat your home.
