Signs Your Boiler Needs Maintenance
Your boiler will alert you to problems before they cause a sudden failure. Common signs of an impending failure that requires prompt maintenance include:
- Neglected Maintenance. If you don’t remember the last time it was serviced, then it’s probably long overdue.
- Clogged Filters. Filters should be replaced about once every month. If the filter is dirtier than normal, it may be because there are problems that need addressing.
- Visible Leaks. Leaks around the boiler are a clear indication that it has rusted through or has connections that are loose.
- Higher Utility Bills. Sudden increases in utility bills often indicate a significant problem with energy efficiency. These are usually caused by component failures that reduce the capacity of the boiler.
- Diminished Heat. If the water isn’t getting hot enough or the boiler is short-cycling, it’s often because components are worn out.
- Strange Noises and Smells. Musty odors, banging sounds, gurgling sounds, “rotten egg” smells, and other smells and noises can indicate component failure.
- Unit Age. The older your boiler, the more maintenance it will require. Most boilers will provide reliable operation for 10-15 years, after which their efficiency will decrease, and the number of required repairs will increase.
