Unusual Sounds

If you hear strange rumbling or rattling noises coming from your boiler, there is likely a problem that needs to be addressed. The noise could mean that the pump moving water around the boiler is acting up and causing vibrations in its housing. The pump is among the limited mechanical components in the boiler, so it’s important to keep an eye on it and resolve any problem it may have.

If you hear strange noises coming from inside the boiler, it might indicate a buildup at the tank’s bottom. This buildup can lead to overheating, making the boiler less effective. Monitoring these things is key to keeping your boiler in good shape.


A Spike in Costs

If you notice an unexplained increase in your monthly bills, this could indicate that your boiler is working inefficiently. When your boiler has an issue that decreases efficiency, it has to use more energy to produce the heat your home needs, resulting in a more costly bill. If you notice a spike in your energy bills but cannot think of a clear reason why, get your boiler checked.


Inconsistent Heating

If your home is being heated unevenly, this could point to various boiler issues. It might be a malfunctioning thermostat, a problem with the circulation pump, air trapped in the system, or even issues with the boiler’s pressure. Having a technician assess your boiler can help identify and fix the specific problem, ensuring your heating system runs smoothly and keeps your home comfortable – consistently.



Leaks can cause a number of problems in a boiler, and even seemingly minor leaks are likely to get worse and become a  severe issue if left unaddressed. Make a habit of inspecting your boiler for condensation and water pooling underneath. If you notice a leak, don’t ignore it!
