Boiler Repair in King of Prussia & West Chester, PA

Most homes in West Chester and southwest Pennsylvania were built between 1970 and 1989. Many of these homes were constructed with boilers for heating, and those boilers were designed to last!

Unfortunately, the fuel efficiency ratings of boilers are often as low as 56%. According to Energy.gov, upgrading your furnace or boiler to 90% efficiency in an average Pennsylvania house will save 1.5 to 2.5 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.

Signature HVAC professionals are North American Technician Excellence (NATE)-certified. We care about safety first, as well as indoor air quality and affordability.

Let Signature HVAC keep your boiler running reliably. Request service online or call for more information about our boiler services in West Chester.

Types of Boilers

Boilers can be powered by electricity, gas, propane, or oil.

  • Electric: Electric boilers are more energy-efficient, but electricity costs are higher.
  • Gas/propane: Gas and propane boilers can attain as much as 96% energy efficiency.
  • Oil: Oil boilers are popular in the Northeast U.S., where we sometimes have limited natural gas availability. Retrofits are possible for older oil-fired boilers, but before pursuing retrofits, you should consider replacing the furnace.

10 Signs You Need Boiler Repair

Maintenance makes the biggest difference in any type of heating/cooling system, including boilers. Routine maintenance can add years of life to your heating unit and save money by maximizing performance. If your HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) system has to work harder to provide comfort, your monthly energy bills will be higher.

Signs you need boiler repair include:

  1. Boiler shuts down: If the boiler keeps shutting off, it can be due to low water pressure or blocked airflow.
  2. Clogged radiator: Boiler radiators can have sludge and mineral-deposit buildups. If a quick fix — draining the radiator and adjusting the valves — doesn’t work, further investigation is needed. If your radiator is warm at the bottom but cold at the top, you could have air in the radiator.
  3. Frozen condensate pipe: Improperly insulated condensate pipes can freeze in the winter. If that happens, put warmth on the pipes using heating pads, etc. If that doesn’t work, you need to contact your local boiler repair company.
  4. Leaks: Leaks can happen when the pump seal deteriorates or when there’s too much pressure on the pressure valve. Other leak causes could be:
    • Bad installation
    • Corroded pipes
    • Deteriorated tanks
    • Temperature too high — valve or probe
  5. Low pressure: Low boiler pressure occurs when your unit has a leak, radiator issues, or your boiler’s pressure relief valve is broken.
  6. No hot water: This could be due to a thermostat problem, broken diaphragm, broken motor valve, or other issues.
  7. Noises: Banging or gurgling noises are a sign you need boiler repair.
  8. Overheated heat exchanger: Sludge and limescale deposits can cause a buildup that clogs the heat exchanger. The buildup of these deposits causes a noise called “kettling.”
  9. The pilot light won’t stay lit: It could be clogged. You might have a broken thermocouple.
  10. Thermostat issues: Older thermostats tend to be less accurate and misread the temperature settings. If it’s old and often turns on/off, it’s likely time for a new thermostat.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the differences between a boiler and a water heater?

Boilers are circulating systems designed to generate higher-temperature, non-potable water capable of effectively warming your home using a series of pipes and radiators connected in a closed loop.

Conversely, water heaters heat potable water for showers, laundry machines, dishwashers, etc. This water doesn’t recirculate; instead, it drains to the sewer after use. Boilers are typically larger and, while energy-efficient, most have higher energy consumption than gas or electric water heaters.

Do I need a water heater and a boiler?

Modern high-efficiency boiler systems can heat your home and the hot water you need for bathing, cooking, etc. Most residential clients opt for boilers (or combi systems) because they offer superior performance, energy efficiency, and space savings.

Some combi systems offer efficiencies as high as 95% or more, making them an effective solution for reducing your carbon footprint without diminishing your comfort.

How often do boilers need service and repairs?

Most boilers will operate reliably if they get annual maintenance from a professional. With proper care and maintenance, your boiler should provide around 15 years of safe, reliable, energy-efficient operation.

Of course, there are problems all boiler owners should watch for closely. Schedule service with our team right away if you notice these issues:

  • Leaks
  • Low pressure
  • Absent or inconsistent heating capacity
  • Malfunctioning radiators
  • Non-responsiveness to thermostat commands
  • Gurgling, banging, or whistling sounds
  • Persistent pilot light failure

These problems require prompt repair from a qualified boiler technician. As with all machinery, most boiler problems start small, but if left unrepaired, the problem can ultimately result in complete system failure and the need for premature boiler replacement.
