Boiler and Boiler Repair FAQs

While most people don’t even think about the boiler in their homes until they encounter a problem, it may be a good idea to learn more about the boiler and the heating system in your home. We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions regarding boilers, boiler repair services and the heating systems in many homes.

How does a boiler work?

According to The U.S. Department of Energy, “Most U.S. homes are heated with either furnaces or boilers. Furnaces heat air and distribute the heated air through the house using ducts. Boilers heat water, and provide either hot water or steam for heating. Steam is distributed via pipes to steam radiators, and hot water can be distributed via baseboard radiators or radiant floor systems, or can heat air via a coil. Steam boilers operate at a higher temperature than hot water boilers, and are inherently less efficient, but high-efficiency versions of all types of furnaces and boilers are currently available.”

How do boilers create heat?

Boilers provide radiant heat, which warms up objects in a room. However, a forced air furnace warms the air in a room, which means objects absorb heat more slowly. Some people prefer boilers because they can set their thermostat at a lower temperature and the radiant heat makes the room feel warmer than the actual air temperature. Many people feel that boilers provide more balanced heat throughout the home during the winter months.

What are common reasons for boiler repair services?

A pump may fail and electrical components can stop working (controls, thermostat, etc.). In some cases, unnecessary air may get into the system or low water pressure may occur, both of which can result in the system not moving the water so the boiler cannot radiate heat correctly or at all. In rare cases, water can freeze in extremely cold conditions. If you live on Long Island, in Queens or in NYC – during the cold winter months – all of these situations may be possible.

Are you wasting energy with a boiler? Boilers do not waste any water because boilers are a sealed system. Modern boiler systems are just as efficient as any gas forced-air furnace. How do I know if my boiler is working efficiently?

While most people would not know how efficiently their boiler is running – if your heat is not working properly that may be a sign. The best way to find out though is by scheduling routine maintenance and inspection services with a reputable and professional HVAC company.

Can my boiler or heating system be upgraded so it is more energy efficient?

According to the Department of Energy, “Furnaces and boilers can be retrofitted to increase their efficiency. These upgrades improve the safety and efficiency of otherwise sound, older systems. The costs of retrofits should be carefully weighed against the cost of a new boiler or furnace, especially if replacement is likely within a few years or if you wish to switch to a different system for other reasons, such as adding air conditioning. If you choose to replace your heating system, you'll have the opportunity to install equipment that incorporates the most energy-efficient heating technologies available.” Other retrofitting options that can improve a system's energy efficiency include installing programmable thermostats, upgrading ductwork in forced-air systems, and adding zone control for hot-water systems.

What types of boiler repair services are the most common?

If your boiler is not working properly, you should call a professional. Excellent Air offers quality boiler repair and maintenance services to customers on Long Island, in Queens and in NYC. A certified technician will come to your home and inspect your boiler. A thorough boiler repair and inspection will include:

Checking the condition of your vent connection pipe and chimney Checking the condition of the heat exchanger - leaky boiler heat exchangers leak water and can be easy to spot. Adjusting the controls on the boiler or furnace to provide optimum water and air temperature settings for both efficiency and comfort Inspecting the pressure tank Cleaning the heat exchanger Analyzing the boiler water and add chemicals as needed to control deposits and corrosion Performing a combustion-efficiency test Testing for the presence of carbon monoxide What happens if I need a new boiler?

Before buying a new furnace or boiler or modifying your existing unit, you should make every effort to improve the energy efficiency of your home, and then have a heating contractor size your furnace. Energy-efficiency improvements will save money on a new furnace or boiler, because you can purchase a smaller unit. A properly sized furnace or boiler will operate most efficiently, and you'll want to choose a dependable unit and compare the warranties of each furnace or boiler you’re considering.

How do I avoid boiler repairs?

If you schedule routine maintenance and boiler inspections you may be able to avoid boiler repair service completely. Routine preventive maintenance programs can help to ensure that your boiler always runs efficiently and your home stays warm in the winter. Scheduling regular inspections and maintenance can ensure that your heating system is running properly and efficiently and that your boiler is working at an optimum level. The heating experts at United States Department of Energy recommend that you maintain your heating equipment to prevent future problems and unwanted costs. They advise homeowners and business owners to, “Keep your cooling and heating system at peak performance by hiring an HVAC professional to perform annual check-ups.” The best way to ensure that your boiler is working well and that your heating system is functioning safely and efficiently is by hiring an experienced professional to perform a thorough inspection and safety check.
