When wintertime in Minnesota hits, it’s vitally important that you have a reliable heating system in your home. Not only do you want to ensure that you and your family have somewhere warm to go when temperatures outside start dropping, but you also want to know that you’re not spending too much money because your heating system isn’t efficient. Having an energy-efficient, dependable heating system is vital. That’s why we offer heating services including boiler repair and boiler replacement.
If you’re heating your home with a boiler, it’s crucial that you have a company that knows how to diagnose and repair any issues that you may be facing. Additionally, it’s important to work with a company that knows how to properly install a new one if you need a boiler replacement. Schuler Plumbing is proud to not only offer new boiler installations, but we’re also a full-service boiler repair company.
Common Boiler Problems
Over the years, the team at Schuler Plumbing has seen virtually every boiler issue imaginable. While there’s no way to discuss everything that can facilitate the need for boiler repair, there are some issues that are more common than others. If your boiler isn’t working properly, there’s a good chance that it comes back to one of these issues.
When most people call a boiler repair company, it’s because they’re experiencing a boiler leak. While leaks are a problem, they’re usually a symptom of another problem. Most boiler leaks are caused by corrosion in the pipes or boiler tank, a faulty component, excessive boiler pressure, or a leak around the seals. It’s important to call our boiler repair company quickly when you notice a leak, as this can cause damage to your home and electrical issues within the boiler.
Low boiler pressure is also a common problem. Low pressure is typically caused by a bleeding radiator or a water leak somewhere in the system. Low boiler pressure is generally easy to detect. Make sure that you check the boiler display panel regularly so you can see if the pressure is dropping.
Finally, you can usually determine that you need to contact a boiler repair company when you notice your boiler making strange noises. Gurgling sounds typically indicate that there is air trapped in the system while drone noises are usually caused by a pump that is no longer working correctly. If you notice a whooshing sound in your boiler, there’s probably something blocking the intake pipe. Lastly, humming noises are common when water arrives from the mains at a pressure point that is too high.
No matter what kind of boiler issue you’re experiencing, we have the solutions that you’re looking for.
What To Do When Your Boiler Stops Working
A boiler that isn’t working can be incredibly troubling. When you realize that your boiler isn’t working, your mind may start to race. However, the best thing that you can do is contact a company like Schuler Plumbing to determine what is wrong with the system. When you try to run diagnostics on your own boiler or try to perform your own repairs, you put yourself, your family, and your boiler in serious danger.
Working on your own boiler without proper training is simply unsafe. Whether your boiler runs on gas or electricity, working on it without the right tools and the right training can be catastrophic. Not only can you completely ruin the boiler, but you may also void the warranty. To make matters worse, you put yourself in immediate physical danger while also creating a health risk for your loved ones. If you do something wrong while trying to work on your boiler, you could create a situation that results in a house fire or a gas leak.
If your boiler isn’t working, your only move should be to call a professionally licensed boiler repair company.
Choosing the Best Boiler for Your Home
If you and the technician that we send to your home believe that a new boiler is your best option, there are some things that you will need to consider when choosing a new boiler. Be sure to talk to the service technician that we send to your home about how to choose a boiler that is the right size. You will need to consider the square footage of your home, the number of bathrooms, the number of showers, and the water pressure system before choosing a boiler.
You should also try to choose an energy-efficient boiler. Boilers come with efficiency ratings that will help you determine which one is best for your long-term budget. This will ensure that you’re not wasting money on a boiler that is inefficient.
If you need a new boiler, you’re not on your own. The team member from Schuler Plumbing who works with you will help you make the best decision.
