Common Boiler Problems in Hamel, IL
An old boiler can operate for years at very low efficiency, wasting valuable energy, and costing you money! Don’t wait until your boiler fails before looking into servicing or replacing your unit! If your Metro East IL home’s boiler is cracked, leaking, or making a hammering noise—we can help.
Boilers, whether powered by gas, oil, or propane, tend to break down in similar ways. Some of the most common boiler problems include:
- Boiler won’t heat – If your boiler has stopped producing heat, it could be due to a number of problems, including low water level, a pilot or electronic ignition failure, or a thermostat glitch.
- Boiler isn’t firing – When your boiler won’t fire up to start, there are several possible causes. Broken motorized valves or air locks may be causing the mechanisms to malfunction. A thermostat setting issue could also be the culprit, as could a broken pump.
- Boiler is leaking – If you notice water leaking, call us at 618.217.1836 to schedule a service. The leak could be coming from the boiler tank, the expansion tank, or the pump.
- Pilot light won’t stay lit – A broken air seal or thermocouple can cause your boiler’s pilot light to go out, but it’s something you need a professional to evaluate.
- Boiler is making loud noises – A buildup of hard water deposits can cause your boiler to make banging, rattling, or rumbling noises. These noises are caused by the water trying to get through passages that have been made smaller by the buildup. Is it a grinding noise you hear? The boiler’s moving parts may require lubrication.
These are just a few of the most common boiler repair issues. If you experience any kind of boiler problem in Madison County or the surrounding area, call Ernst Heating & Cooling at 618.217.1836!
