Boilers burn natural gas, propane or oil as fuel and pump heated water into your home through radiators. A boiler is a good option for home heating but as with any heating system can experience problems that leave you in the cold. Gillece Heating Services provides solutions for repairing a number of common boiler issues.

No Heat or Poor Heating

Whether your boiler seems not to be working at all or doesn’t provide adequate heat to your home, the problem might be:

  • No Power

Ensure the power supply to your boiler is on. You might have a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse, in which case you may be able to reset the breaker or replace the fuse to restore power to your boiler.

  • Gas Supply Off

Ensure the gas supply is on. If you have an oil boiler, check the gauge for the appropriate amount of oil in tank.

  • Low Water Level

Low water levels often result in a sudden change in boiler performance. If the water pressure is low, water needs added. There could alternatively be a problem with the pressure relief valve.

  • Pilot Light Problem

If the pilot light is out, you may be able to relight it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you have an electronic ignition system it will need troubleshooting. Call for a Gillece Technician.

  • Thermostat Problem

Make sure the thermostat is on heat mode and set at an appropriate temperature. Thermostats can experience problems on their own that will keep a boiler from operating properly.

  • Mineral Deposit Buildup

If your boiler’s performance seems to be decreasing over time, you might have mineral deposit buildup, in which case your tank will need flushed. This is something a professional Gillece HVAC Technician can take care of.

  • Frozen Condensate Pipe

In extreme cold, the condensate pipe that removes condensation from your boiler can freeze. This could cause a blockage that shuts down your boiler.

Water Leak

  • Faulty Pump

You may have a faulty pump, which should be addressed by a certified HVAC Technician.

  • Leaking Pipe

A connecting water pipe to your boiler may be experiencing a leak. The pipe will need repaired after locating the source.

Cold Radiator

  • Trapped Air

If you notice that your radiators are cold, it is likely due to trapped air within the line. This calls for “bleeding,” a process in which the bleed valve on your radiator is opened to allow air to escape. Once water begins dribbling out of the valve, all air has escaped.

If you experience any of these common boiler issues or other home heating problem, expert Gillece Heating Technicians can provide repair options to get your home comfortable and properly functioning again. Call Gillece!
