The boiler unit is connected to a network of heating pipes and radiators throughout the house.

Residential Boiler Repair Services

Boilers differ from furnaces in the way they operate and the components they contain. When boiler problems arise, an experienced professional needs to assess the situation before diagnosing the issue. Tests are performed and we ask questions about your experience to determine the problem and decide an appropriate repair solution.

Some common reasons homeowners call for boiler repair include:

  • Weak flame from pilot light
  • Banging and clanking noises when boiler runs
  • Weak or intermittent water flow
  • High energy bills or fuel use

When you call Buckeye Heating & Cooling for boiler repairs in Columbus, Ohio, our NATE-certified boiler repair technicians perform a safety inspection to ensure your boiler doesn’t pose a danger in the home. After we complete a diagnostic exam, we are able to discuss the appropriate repair solutions that will fix the boiler problems you face to improve system performance and energy efficiency.

Common boiler repairs performed by our technicians include:

  • Repair or replace boiler tubes
  • Welding cracks and leaks
  • Repair or replace feedwater and condensate pumps
  • External pipe repairs
  • Refractory repairs

If repair needs are extensive or costly, talk to our team about the possibility of replacing your boiler. With several equipment options to choose from, a new boiler may be a better financial move than repairs for an older system.

Boiler Replacement and Installation

Aging boilers drop in efficiency and use more energy to heat the home. Older boilers are under greater stress that not only causes them to waste energy, but increases the likelihood of malfunctions and breakdowns. Heating bills will cost more and you’ll have more repair expenses with an older boiler versus a new boiler unit.

Boiler heating units last an average of 15 to 30 years. If your home’s boiler is within or beyond this timeframe, it’s best to consider your replacement options. It may be time to replace your boiler if you notice issues such as:

  • Yellow burner flames
  • More frequent repairs
  • Leaks from the boiler
  • Corrosion and rust on the boiler
  • Higher energy bills

Boiler replacement is easy when you work with Buckeye Heating & Cooling. Our Comfort Consultants are boiler equipment experts and are ready to answer any questions you may have about boiler models for your home.

New, modern boiler units offer much higher energy efficiency levels than boilers built several years ago which have been in service for quite some time. If your boiler didn’t receive regular maintenance over its service life, its energy efficiency level is likely even lower than you expect. New natural gas, oil, and electric boilers are available with a range of AFUE ratings – AFUE stands for annual fuel utilization efficiency. Expressed as a percentage, AFUE shares how much of the energy taken in by the boiler is converted to heat from the home. Minimum AFUE ratings are 80% for gas steam boilers, 82% for gas hot water boilers, and 84% for oil hot water boilers. However, much more efficient units can be installed in the home, with AFUE ratings in the mid to high 90% range.

Boiler Replacement for Older Columbus Homes

Columbus’s beautiful historic homes often use boiler heating systems, upgrading the boiler unit as needed. The piping and radiators used to distribute heat have a much longer lifespan than the boiler itself, usually around 75 years. If your home’s boiler heating system is operating using an older boiler, your heating could be much more efficient!

Upgrade the boiler to heat your historic home with much greater efficiency, without impacting the integrity of your home. If existing pipes and radiators are in good shape, a new boiler is all you need. If your current pipes and radiators are damaged, Buckeye Heating & Cooling can make the needed repairs or replace the system when installing a new boiler at your residence.

Choose Boiler Heating in Columbus, Ohio

There are pros and cons to the use of any type of heating system, boilers included. Purchasing a boiler unit is usually more costly than buying a furnace or heat pump. While a boiler has a higher upfront cost, these heating systems can be much more energy efficient which saves you money over time. There are no ducts so energy loss through air leakage is not an issue, which allows boilers to deliver more efficient heating even when compared to furnaces with the same AFUE ratings. While boilers don’t react as quickly as furnaces, the heating they offer is more consistent, and their operating is far quieter.

When it’s time to replace the older boiler in your home, the boiler replacement pros of Buckeye Heating & Cooling are ready to assist you. Our NATE-certified boiler installation technicians and team of Comfort Consultants work to ensure you find a new boiler that fits your needs and budget while fitting seamlessly into your home.
