A boiler is really a whole house plumbing system, supplying both radiant heat and hot water in most instances. And while boiler systems can often operate trouble-free for many years, eventually problems can arise. For existing systems, a reduction in heat can be one of the first signs that there’s a problem with your boiler.
Common Signs of Boiler Problems
- Lack of heat from radiators
- Lack of hot water
- Low water pressure
- Banging & creaking radiator and boiler pipes
- Leaking pipes
