Need a new boiler system, boiler repair service, or annual boiler service? Kulk’s Plumbing & Heating can help!
If your home is heated by a boiler system, it is helpful to understand how they work and when you may need boiler repair service, or boiler replacement. Boilers vary from furnaces as furnaces use air to heat your home, and boilers use water. Boilers are special purpose water heaters that are designed to distribute heat in hot water that then gives off heat as it passes through radiators or other heating devices throughout your home. Once this water has cooled down, it then returns to your system to be reheated and used again. Residential boilers are typically fueled by natural gas or heating oil.
It is extremely vital that you have annual boiler service done as a part of your home’s yearly maintenances. This will help to ensure that your boiler is in good working condition and help to limit its wear over time. Additionally, annual boiler service is typically a warranty condition at the time of boiler installation of your new boiler system. A good time of year to have your boiler serviced is summer when heating technicians are likely less busy.
Here are some indications that it may be time for boiler repair service in your home:
