We service and replace both hot water as well as steam boilers of most major brands. This includes radiator repairs and installation, gas piping, and programmable thermostats.
Benefits of a Boiler
Not sure if a boiler is right for you? This high-efficiency heating system saves you energy along with many other great benefits.
More Energy Efficient
Boilers can be gas or electric. A boiler heats up hot water and sends it through pipes in your home to radiant heated flooring or radiators. Boilers on average consume less energy than a furnace, and you’ll notice the energy savings right away.
Heated Water Can Be Reused
Once the hot water reaches the radiator or radiant floor system, it gives off heat or steam to warm the air. As the water cools, or the steam condenses, it travels back to your boiler where it is heated up and sent back to the radiators to continue the cycle of heating your home. Many boilers can also provide hot water to your taps as well. Ask Edelman about combination boiler systems.
Better Indoor Air Quality
A traditional furnace pushes air through ducts. These ducts often accumulate dust, allergens, and bacteria that spread from room to room as warm air travels through the ducts. With a boiler, your boiler water travels through pipes, not ducts. This avoids the spreading of allergens. You may also notice your house is less dusty too.
Even Heating Throughout The Home
The problem with air ducts is that they can get clogged which prevents air from traveling evenly to every room. Since a boiler system does not need ducts, you’re more likely to have even heating throughout your home with a boiler system. Although a boiler system may not be as responsive to temperature changes on the thermostat, radiant heating will keep every area of the home warm.
On a cold winter’s day in Illinois, not much beats coming inside to a warm home. Even in the middle of summer, you rely on your boiler to produce hot water for washing and disinfecting your hands, clothes, and dishes. While you may take heat for granted, in order for you to have access to this modern convenience, you must have a functioning boiler. While it would be nice if your boiler never had any issues, even the highest quality of boilers will eventually require repairs.
Signs Your Boiler Needs Repairs
Luckily, boilers tend to have a longer lifespan than furnaces. Many customers also notice that their boiler tends to need service less often. Boilers should be inspected and maintained once a year before you turn your heating system on for the first time, but otherwise, your boiler should keep your home warm all winter long. However, you should know the signs to keep an eye out for if your boiler needs repairs.
If you ever notice that your boiler tank is leaking, then you need an emergency repair. Leaks often indicate internal corrosion and you may need parts replaced. Your experienced boiler technician from Edelman Inc. can help diagnose the issue and let you know how much repairs will cost.
Pilot Light Is Out
Boilers heated by gas have a pilot light that heats the water up. Some electric boilers don’t have pilot lights. If you have no heat coming from your boiler, check your pilot light. You might be able to relight it yourself or have a professional help you.
Kettling is a noise that sounds like a loud rumbling like water boiling in a tea kettle. Kettling happens when sediment and mineral deposits build up in your boiler tank. This can cause changes in pressure which can lead to leaks. If you’re hearing kettling noises when your boiler is on, call a technician for help before the issue gets worse.
If you’re experiencing no heat, it could be a number of things. First, make sure that your boiler is receiving power. If it is, call a technician before trying to fix your boiler yourself. There could be several reasons why your boiler is not heating your home and it’s best to trust an expert to get your home warm again.
