    Common Boiler Issues

    Boilers are typically very reliable, but like any piece of machinery, they are not immune to problems. Some of the most common issues include leaks and drips, resulting from various causes such as a broken internal component or pressure issues. Kettling, a distinctive rumbling noise caused by limescale or sludge buildup in the system, can reduce your boiler’s efficiency. Other frequent issues include a loss of pressure, which can prevent your boiler from heating your home effectively, and thermostat troubles that could lead to inconsistent heat. No matter the problem, Chatham Comfort Controls‘ emergency repair team is well-versed in diagnosing and addressing boiler repair issues to ensure your home or business stays warm throughout the winter.

    Reduce Repair Costs with Regular Inspections

    Here at Chatham Comfort Controls, we are committed to timely boiler repair for your home or business. Furthermore, we want to get you up and running as soon as possible. To keep your boiler operating correctly, we recommend regularly scheduling maintenance checks and boiler repairs at least once per year. These checks can help you prevent and fix minor issues as they occur. Addressing these problems as soon as possible can prevent more significant and costly issues in the future. As a result, these new problems may affect the longevity of your boiler. Ensure you avoid getting stuck with a broken boiler in the coldest months of the year. Count on Chatham Comfort Controls to be there for you, your family, or your business to keep your boiler system running smoothly all year long.

    How Often Should I Have My Boiler Inspected?

    Much like a furnace, we recommend having your boiler inspected at least once yearly at the beginning of the heating season. Regular inspection can detect and mitigate minor problems with your boiler that may be preventing it from running at its best. Repairing these issues when they occur can save you money from costly boiler repairs in the future.

    How Do I Know If My Boiler Needs An Inspection?

    Your boiler may be telling you that there is a problem, and you don’t even know it! There are significant signs that your boiler is not operating at the optimal capacity that you might be able to find right now. If you are experiencing any of these signs, call the boiler repair experts team here at Chatham Comfort Controls

    Strange Noises

    You may notice strange noises coming from your boiler. Clanking, tapping, whistling, banging, or any other unusual sounds indicate a boiler in need of repair. These noises could be due to loose internal parts knocking together or issues with your pump. Either way, it is vital to have your boiler inspected and make any necessary boiler repairs right away to keep your boiler in optimal condition. These boiler repairs can be fixed if caught early but can lead to much more costly repairs if left unchecked.

    Malfunctioning Pilot Light

    If you notice that your pilot light is constantly going out or boasts a yellow/orange flame instead of the proper blue, it can be for several reasons. This occurrence is most common on older boilers; the pilot light ignites a slow stream of gas provided by the main burner. Without the pilot light tube sensor, the valve controlling gas flow would continue to build up—an otherwise risky scenario. If you notice that your pilot light is behaving oddly or not cooperating, you may want to reach out for boiler repair services as soon as possible.


    If you notice any water surrounding your boiler, you may have a severe problem on your hands, such as a broken seal or valve. As this can lead to rust and corrosion, it is important to shut it off and call a professional. On top of boiler repair costs, a leaky boiler can quickly lead to water damage in your home.

    High Boiler Pressure

    Your boiler is not taking college exams or dealing with crunch time at work, so it should always remain under steady pressure. A standard range for modern boiler pressure is 1.0 – 1.5 bar. Anything lower than 1 bar will typically not run due to safety devices implemented in the system. However, if a boiler shows the correct pressure yet continues to exhibit problems, it may be time to schedule a boiler repair.

    Increased Gas Consumption

    If your boiler consumes more gas than usual, it may signify that it is not performing efficiently. The older a boiler gets, the more difficult it is for the system to keep up with its standard output without working harder. This progression puts stress on the boiler as a whole. Not only is gas-guzzling taxing on your wallet but so are the costs of boiler repairs—or even replacement—if the issue is left unaddressed for too long.

    Boiler Maintenance Tips

    Want to learn how to better maintain your boiler after your repair? The following tips are from the Energy Star library of articles, a fantastic resource where you can read about numerous HVAC topics for your home, including energy-saving tips.

    • Boiler maintenance is a bit more complicated because each system’s configuration differs. Only a few general maintenance tips apply to the majority of boiler systems.
    • Oiling the pump will allow smooth operation and prevent the motor from overheating in the long run.
    • Remove (if possible) any dirt and dust from the pump to ensure heat transfer efficiency. You can also bleed radiators by opening valves to release pockets of air. Once the water flows steadily, you’ll know that you have let all the unwanted air escape. After bleeding the radiators, check the temperature/pressure gauge(s) and maintain the boiler’s proper water level.
    • Along with checking the gauge, check the expansion tank. This inspection can ensure that it has proper air and water levels to allow room for expansion.
    • Finally, we recommend having your system serviced or diagnosed once a year by an HVAC technician.

    Reducing Heating Costs with Your Boiler

    The efficiency of your boiler plays a crucial role in managing and reducing your heating costs. A straightforward way to achieve this is by setting your boiler at a consistent, lower temperature instead of cranking it up during cold spells. Regular maintenance checks and boiler repairs can also significantly reduce heating costs by ensuring your system runs optimally. Insulation is another cost-efficient method; properly insulating your home will prevent heat loss, reducing the boiler’s workload. Lastly, consider investing in a smart thermostat. This device can learn your schedule and adjust the temperature accordingly, eliminating unnecessary heating and contributing to cost savings.
