Boilers are fantastic heating systems. The heat they provide is very even, keeping your whole home perfectly comfortable. They’re longer-lasting than pretty much any other option, sometimes running for three decades before they need to be replaced. And they also require fewer repairs than other types of heating systems, largely because they have fewer moving parts which can break down.
However, no system is perfect. Nothing works forever without encountering a single problem. So on rare occasions, your boiler will have trouble and need repairs. It’s always best to have boiler repairs done promptly so the problems won’t get worse. How can you tell it’s time for repair? Listen for these sounds.
