The Expert in Boiler Systems in Elizabethtown, KY, and the Surrounding Areas

Boiler Repair

The steam-generating boiler has been around since the late 1700s and remains a popular choice for home heating today. At Instant Aire Heating and Cooling, we install and service all types of boiler systems in Elizabethtown, KY, and the surrounding areas.

Boiler systems deliver heat through a network of pipes. As is the case with any other heating system, a thermostat activates and controls the boiler. Benefits associated with this type of heating system include:

Types of Boiler Heating Systems

With a new boiler installation or replacement, you'll have some options to consider, such as:

  • InstantAire icon

    Steam boilers

    The oldest type of boiler still in use today, these boilers use a heat exchanger to heat water that's distributed via pipes.

  • InstantAire icon

    Hot water boilers

    This type of boiler system uses pressure, volume, and temperature to safely deliver heat to radiators.

  • InstantAire icon

    Natural gas boilers

    These are boilers fueled by natural gas, although the heat is still delivered via a pipe system.

  • InstantAire icon

    Electric boilers

    An electric boiler runs on electricity. The result is a quieter and more space-efficient operating system.

  • InstantAire icon

    Oil boilers

    If natural gas isn't readily available in your area, you may benefit from a boiler fueled by a separate oil tank.

  • InstantAire icon

    Condensing boilers

    These boilers work with two separate heat exchangers that heat and re-heat the water. They further boost efficiency by using energy generated from exhaust gases.

Let Us Address Your Common Boiler Problems

Noticing anything out of the ordinary? That reason enough to give us a call about boiler repair. Other common problems you may encounter include:

  • 1 Leaking - A boiler leak is usually caused by a faulty or damaged pressure valve, pump seal, or other internal parts.
  • 2 Low boiler pressure - Pressure that's too low could be caused by a system leak or a component or seal that has failed.
  • 3 Lack of heat/hot water - If your pressure gauge is below 1, repressurizing may be what's needed to fix the problem. Also, thermostat issues could cause insufficient heat or hot water.
  • 4 Gurgling and other odd noises - Boilers do make some noises as they operate, but if it's excessive, you may have issues with a faulty pump, an accumulation of limescale referred to as "kettling," or low water pressure.
  • 5 Failure to turn on - Check your fuse box first. If this isn't the issue, potential causes of an inability to turn on include system blockage and thermostat problems.

A boiler is like any other type of comfort system in that it needs to be regularly maintained. Because of the way a typical boiler works, boiler maintenance is also important when it comes to preventing potential safety hazards. Additionally, taking advantage of our maintenance service options here at Instant Aire Heating and Cooling means you'll likely enjoy an efficient, well-functioning boiler for many years.

FAQs on Boiler Services

How long before I'll need to consider a replacement?

Generally, a boiler lasts within the 15 to 20-year range with proper maintenance. That said, a boiler replacement will also depend on how well it is operating and the kind of issues you may be experiencing with it.

Will my homeowner's insurance policy cover boiler repair or maintenance?

As boilers tend to need regular attention, most insurers do not cover boiler services as a part of standard coverage. However, our rates are always reasonable and upfront.

Can I switch from one type of boiler to another down the road?

Whether or not this is possible will depend on several factors, such as what kind of fuel options you have available in your area and whether or not you want to have the necessary adjustments made. Be sure to consult an HVAC contractor on our team to go over your best options.
