What is wrong with my boiler?

As the cold winter weather begins to subside, be sure to have your boiler inspected for any repairs, which may need to be made to ensure it is running safely and efficiently.

Although boilers are not as common as they used to be, some homes in the U.S. rely on boilers to heat both their homes and waters.

If your home is heated by a boiler, it is important that you have it annually inspected so you are not scrambling when the weather changes next fall or when you need hot water.

How does a boiler work?

Unlike furnaces, which heat air to be distributed throughout your home, a boiler heats water. This water becomes steam and is then distributed throughout the home through baseboard radiators or coil radiators. 

Furthermore, some boilers will actually heat hot water to be used for showers, sinks, washers, dishwashers, etc.

Although less efficient, these systems still exist and Plumbers 911 can refer you to the right plumber to inspect and repair your boiler system.
