What is your boiler problem?
My boiler isn't producing any heat. Have you checked the power? The circuit breaker may need to be flipped back to the on position or a blown fuse may need to be replaced. Have you checked the water level? You want to keep the water level at half full. If this is a consistent problem, your boiler's automatic filling system and pressure relieve valve may need maintenance. If it's not the power or the water level, check the pilot light. If it's out, relight it.
My boiler isn't producing enough heat. If this is a sudden change, there could be a problem with the water level and pressure. If this is a gradual change, there could be mineral deposits from the water building up in the boiler and/or heat exchanger. In this case, flush the boiler or call Magnolia Heating and Air Conditioning to have one our experienced HVAC technicians do this for you.
My boiler's expansion tank has too much water and not enough air. Your boiler expansion tank needs to have the correct balance of water and air to prevent water in the system from boiling and exceeding about 12psi of pressure.
My boiler is leaking water. If the leak is caused by a faulty circulator pump, in most cases you will need to call an HVAC technician to fix it. If the pressure relief valve is leaking, the expansion tank may be full of water, in which case it needs to be drained and refilled with the proper proportion of water and air. If the pressure relief valve is leaking and the expansion tank is NOT full of water, the valve could have a buildup of sediment, which is preventing it from closing, in which case it will need to be cleaned. If the pressure relief valve doesn't close at all, you will need to replace the valve. If the pressure relief valve doesn't discharge any water at all, either the valve needs to be replaced OR there is no water in the boiler. If water is leaking from a pipe, you will need to find the source, then turn off the water supply to the house, drain the boiler system and then repair the leak.
