A boiler is a complex piece of equipment. And yet, it’s one that rarely requires repair. That’s one of the great things about a boiler; it’s highly durable and tends to require little maintenance. That’s why you might be surprised when you notice problems with your boiler, but it’s bound to happen at some point or another.
Take a look at some of the problems you might come across when you own a boiler instead of a forced-air heating system like a furnace. (These are two very different systems, aside from their ignition systems.) It’s good to know what you might expect, and better to realize that routine preventative maintenance may be a good option for your home.
