How often does my boiler require service?

Residential boilers should be serviced annually. Maintenance and repairs can ensure your home’s boiler runs efficiently while minimizing any unexpected malfunctions. Our team will make sure your boiler is not releasing any harmful gases, including carbon monoxide.

Should I replace or repair my boiler?

Several factors go into whether your boiler should be repaired or replaced. Increased heating bills or frequent boiler repairs indicate that you should upgrade to a more efficient appliance. If the cost of frequent repairs is adding up, it also makes sense to invest in a replacement. Our team can determine your best choice and go over your options with you.

Why does my boiler keep turning itself off?

A boiler that constantly turns itself off indicates a malfunction. Some potential causes include a malfunctioning thermostat, low water pressure, a faulty pump, or frozen condenser pipes.

How Do Boilers Work?

A gas boiler heats water until it turns into steam, then circulates the steam to terminal units like radiators. The operation of a boiler is somewhat similar to a furnace. There is a burner that is under a heat exchanger. When the thermostat calls for heat, the burner will ignite and heat the water in your tank. As the water in the unit turns into steam, a circulating pump will supply more water to the unit, and the cycle will continue.

How Long Do Boilers Last?

Boilers are durable appliances that can last for a long time. It’s not unusual for a boiler to last more than 10 years. Some homeowners brag that they’ve made their boiler last multiple decades. If you want to make your boiler last as long as possible, you should keep up with a routine of regularly scheduled plumbing maintenance appointments with Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Rhode Island. You may also want to replace your boiler more often to get the benefits that come with a modernized unit.

What’s the Difference Between a Boiler vs a Furnace?

It’s easy for the average homeowner to get confused by the differences between boilers and furnaces. Both are responsible for heating your home, and many of their internal components are similar. Fundamentally, they are different appliances, though. A furnace heats air and circulates the warm air throughout your home. On the other hand, boilers heat water and circulate the hot water or steam. Furnaces will usually use vents, and boilers will use radiators or radiant floor systems.

Why Is My Boiler Not Working?

If your boiler suddenly stops working, diagnosing the problem is going to be one of your top priorities. There are many reasons a boiler may break down, such as an issue with the gas or power supply, a faulty pilot light, or issues with the pressure in the tank. The most reliable way to find the source of a malfunctioning boiler is to work with a team of home service professionals. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Rhode Island uses highly precise diagnostic techniques to help you thoroughly understand the nature of your boiler’s issue.
