Four Signs Your Boiler May Have a Problem

If you ever have any problems with your gas boiler, you should probably call a professional rather than trying any sort of repairs on your own. Be on the lookout for the following problems and get in touch with a technician if they occur.

  • No heating or hot water – There are several potential causes for this problem, including a broken pump, a bad thermostat, a low water leve,l or a failure of a motorized valve. However, these problems can all be repaired so you will probably not need a replacement.
  • Leaking water – If this occurs, you will need to call a technician as fast as possible because your home could be at risk of suffering extensive damage.
  • The pilot light keeps going out – This problem is usually due to a broken thermocouple. This is a relatively minor repair that can be quickly performed by a technician.
  • Loss of water pressure – If you have this problem, then you probably have a leak somewhere in the system. The extent of the issue will determine whether you need a repair or a replacement.


In order to make sure your boiler keeps running, make the investment in a regular maintenance routine. While there are some things you can do on your own, most maintenance tasks need to be performed by a professional. Not only will proper maintenance ensure your boiler works through the coldest part of winter, it will also add years to its lifespan. Regularly choosing Essig for this maintenance will ensure that our technicians will be able to predict when components will need to be replaced so that you are fully prepared.
