Signs that You May Need Boiler Repair

There are many symptoms that indicate whether you need the best Vancouver boiler repair. Signs you need boilers maintenance include your fuel bill rising, unusual noises coming from the heating unit, having a water leak or the water having an unusual smell to it. Water heaters do not take long to heat up, so when they do, it usually calls for concern. It is important not to let these signs linger: the longer they occur, the more likely your boiling unit service could turn into a critical situation. Knowing what to look for can help you quickly diagnose the problem. Don’t wait for that plumbing or water leak to ruin your property: call us at MVP for a quote on emergency boiler repair in Vancouver.

If your boiling unit is not working at a hundred percent, it will become costly, and that’s a very good reason to call for services or repairs. See these warming tips when your boiler breaks down. Your boiling unit should make some noise consistently throughout the day. If any unusual noises occur, turn it off and call for a service. Not fixing the problem could cost you hundreds in replacement costs when all it needs is a proper repair.

Other factors, such as the unit is more than fifteen years old or constantly needing maintenance, is a good indication that it is time for a replacement. Most warranties run out after ten years, so if your boiling unit is more than fifteen years old there is a very good chance the warranty has expired. Older units use more energy than new units, break down more frequently, and need plumbing repairs and it can also be difficult to find the parts for them when they need maintenance. When you get to the point that you are spending more money on a repair than you would on a full replacement of the unit, you should give the professionals a call. Call us today at MVP for free unit repairs and replacement quotes alongside all other plumbing needs. We can help you decide whether your hot water heaters need repair or need to be replaced completely. Our plumbers do it all, from installation to boiler maintenance and repair, providing the most hands-on plumbing and heating experience you can find in Vancouver boiler repair.

Choosing the Right Boiler for Your Home

When you decide that it’s time to replace your water boiling unit, choosing the right boiler repair with the right boiler contractor can be quite difficult. Take comfort in knowing that you don’t have to make this decision on your own. The licensed professional plumbers at MVP can help you decide on the perfect boiling system for your home. There are several different types, but the most common are combination boilers, heat only boilers, and system boilers.

This is the most popular choice because it is the most economical when it comes to gas units. Our plumbers in West Vancover BC are the most popular choice for gas boiler repair. There is no need for a water storage tank with this boiling unit. Heat only – or conventional - units are often found in an older style property. This unit needs a place to store hot water and a pump to get the hot water to various parts of the property. There are system units which work with a hot water storage device. These are quick and easy to install because all the heating components are built right into the unit.

When choosing the right boiling unit for your house, we at Metro Vancouver Plumbing look at several factors. The size of your property and type of fuel your property uses is used as a base to see how strong of a heating mechanism you will need. Why not try these space saving ideas to make a better room for your appliances. The efficiency rating of the boiling unit, whether it is a high-efficiency unit, the life expectancy of the equipment, and the warranty are also very useful.

Replacing your unit can be expensive, but choosing a quality new unit model from the best units on the market will save you money on repairs in the long run. Call us today at MVP for a free quote on a new water boiler installation.

  • Start with turning the heat on in regular intervals before you actually need it. Towards the end of summer, early fall, turn on the heat and ensure that it's heating up properly. You don’t want to wait till it's below freezing outside to find out your heat is down.
  • You should also check your boiling unit’s pressure. The method for doing this is different depending on the type of unit you have. If you are unsure how to do this, give one of our licensed technicians at Metro Vancouver Plumbing a call and a certified professional will be glad to show you how before you need a costly repair.
  • Check that it has good ventilation. Just like any other heating system, boiling units need good heat ventilation to work at their best. Keep clutter away from your unit, not only for the heating ventilation but also to prevent creating a fire hazard.
  • Lastly, bleed your radiators and check for a blue flame, get more info here to understand fire color meaning. To bleed the radiators, find a radiator key, turn off the heating mechanism, and open the valves of your radiator. Catch the drips of water from the valves in a disposable container. Wait for the water to come out of the bleed valve of the radiator before closing the valve. Check the boiler’s pressure level and pipes and repeat the process on all the radiators within your property. If you are unsure how to do this, contact Metro Vancouver Plumbing, the best boiler service in Vancouver for help.
  • If the flame is yellow instead of blue it could indicate the presence of carbon monoxide, which can be extremely dangerous to anyone exposed to it.

I was very pleased with how the plumbers fixed my boiler. They were efficient and friendly. They simpilified some technical terms and explained gas leak as the reason for the broken boiler. I would gladly hire them again. Good job!

In the middle of the winter cold weather, my boiler suddenly broke down leaving us with no hot water! I immediately called Metro Vancouver Plumbing although I know it's pretty late at night. The next thing I know it's already fixed! They work so fast and professional, a very reliable company with reasonable cost.
