Signs Your Boiler Needs Repair

It’s no secret that Chicago winters can get to the point where you don’t want to leave your home. Imagine if your heat suddenly stopped working too, what would you do? Boilers typically last from 10-15 years, but you should have regular checks to make sure it is running properly. If you are in need of heating and cooling repair in Lincolnwood, turn to Elite HVACs, in the meantime, here are some signs that your boiler needs repair.

Water

It might be obvious that no hot water means that your boiler is broken, but this is important! When you turn your hot water on, the water should heat up almost instantly. Low water pressure is another important indicator that something isn’t right with your boiler.

Unusual Noises

Some noise from your boiler is normal, and after time you will get used to these sounds. If you suddenly hear clanging noises, like pots and pans being banged together, there is probably something wrong with it.

Leaks

Boilers and the pipes connecting to it are susceptible to corrosion, which can cause leaks. Beside this, leaking water can cause damage to property. If you notice any water pooling around your boiler, you will need to act quickly. This is usually caused by a broken internal part. A small drip can become something more serious in a matter of days.
A rise in your energy bill can also be a sign that you are in need of heating and cooling repair in Lincolnwood. Contact Elite HVACs today to schedule your next maintenance check.

Great experience all around. From the email and phone call, confirmations etc. The whole group made me feel comfortable and confident that I had chose the right company to do business with. My A/C unit was turning on and off and Elite sent out a very knowledgeable and courteous technician to check, tune up, and recharge my refrigerant. Steve the technician was knowledgeable and walked me through the entire process and was very upfront with what I needed and didn't need. All went well they were on time and got the job done in a timely and professional manner. Customer for life and will refer them gladly.

We contacted Elite HVACS on one of the hottest days of summer(we had no central air for 2weeks) and they sent some1 out same day to assess situation & decided to go with them for the work. I am happy to say that not only did we get the central air going but also replaced the heating unit which was old. Everyone we talked to from beginning to end were very professional, courteous and the work was very efficiently done. I would highly recommend this company.

I have had Juan and others from the team over a few times now. They always arrive within the time window provided and provide solid work. Price has always been fair for anything they've performed maintenance on and was always discussed upfront before being work begins. I would recommend them to anyone in the area.
