Nothing beats a long, steamy shower after a hard day – almost miraculously the day’s frustrations dissolve away, tension in your body is soothed, and you feel peaceful. What you don’t want is the spluttering of a faulty boiler to ruin the mood. Best to keep the phone number of your Nazareth, PA 24-hour plumber  handy for timely boiler repairs.

  1. Strange noises

If your boiler is emitting unusual sounds, it could be a symptom of muck and lime scale build-up on the heat exchanger section of your boiler. The resulting restricted flow of water leads to overheating and boiling which, in turn, results in those eerie noises.

  1. Cold radiators

If your radiators aren’t heating up as much as they should, chances are you have a sludge build-up or a build-up of air. Determine if only the top of your radiator is cold – a straightforward bleed should fix that. However, if it is the entire radiator, it is time to call the boiler experts.

  1. Switching itself off

A boiler that keeps turning itself off is simply wasting energy without offering the advantage of a cozily heated home. It could be a sign of  lower water pressure, a problem with your thermostat or a closed valve. In such an instance, get your boiler serviced sooner rather than later to avoid wasting energy, time, and money in the long-term.

  1. Water around your boiler

If you notice water drips or leaks around your boiler the cause could be a host of potential problems, including a malfunctioning internal part. If possible, establish the source of the leak as this will help your boiler technician to diagnose the problem.

  1. Unpleasant smells

If you detect an unusual odor when the heat kicks in, call a repairman immediately to evaluate the problem, as this could indicate a gas leak or incomplete fuel burning, which will release carbon monoxide into your home. If necessary, a boiler replacement may be needed.
