Do Plumbers Repair Boilers?

Plymouth Plumbing & Heating provides comprehensive boiler repair services on all makes and models of steam/gas/oil boilers. We also provide emergency boiler repairs that include gas line leaks/repairs, boiler tank leaks, thermostat problems, and more. When your residential or commercial boiler needs attention, call the licensed and experienced plumbers at Plymouth Plumbing and Heating.

How Often Should I Service My Steam/Gas/Oil Boiler?

Any residential or commercial boiler, regardless of whether it is steam, gas, or oil, should be professionally serviced every 12 months. Before you object and claim to be able to perform the necessary maintenance yourself, consider the following reasons for calling a professional plumber to service your boiler.

  • Manufacturer’s Warranty - Most boiler manufacturers require a professional inspection each year in order to not void the warranty should problems arise.
  • Stop Problems Before They Occur - A professional plumber who has experience with boilers will know the various signs of pending problems, as well as have the proper equipment to check the boiler’s components for irregular operations patterns. He or she will also know the routine maintenance steps for your model of boiler.
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning - Those with gas or oil boilers have a risk of a faulty boiler generating life-threatening carbon monoxide. A licensed plumber from Plymouth Plumbing & Heating will have the equipment to test for this dangerous gas and make repairs to keep your family safe.
Do You Offer Commercial Boiler Maintenance?

YES, Plymouth Plumbing & Heating provides comprehensive professional maintenance for oil, gas, or steam boilers of all sizes and applications. Our trained and licensed plumbers have experience performing emergency repairs as well as routine maintenance on commercial boilers. We are available 24/7 for emergency repairs, including nights, weekends, and holidays.

Can You Help Troubleshoot My Boiler?

When boiler issues arise, they are typically caused by a few problems. Use this troubleshooting guide to determine what your boiler needs.

  • Water Leaks - Water leaking and standing around a radiator may indicate a faulty relief valve, pump, or other issue. Water leaks or pooling water around the boiler tank can indicate leaking pipes or a leak in the tank itself. Any water leaks should be addressed by a professional plumber right away to prevent water damage to your home and further damage to your heating system.
  • Strange Noises - Strange noises from your boiler are to be expected from time to time. However, certain noises can indicate problems. For example, rumbling (sometimes called kettling) noises can indicate a buildup of lime scale on the heat exchanger. Rattling pipes can indicate excess water trapped in the return lines or a faulty circulator pump. If other persistent noises occur, call Plymouth Plumbing & Heating for a boiler checkup soon.
  • Low or No Heat - This can be caused by several problems. The most common are below:
    • Thermostat – Check to be sure the thermostat is in "heat" mode and that the setting is above room temperature.
    • Fuse box or circuit panel – Check the fuse box or circuit panel for a blown fuse or tripped breaker.
    • Pilot Light – Check to make sure the pilot light is lit. If it's not, you can attempt to light it manually, but a component malfunction could automatically shut off the gas. Also, leaking seals that bleed air can keep blowing out the pilot light.
    • Hot-surface ignitor – These typically last between 3-5 years, but they do wear out. They are normally replaced every three years during preventive maintenance by a professional plumber.
    • Circulator pump – If your circulator pump is cool and you can't feel it vibrating as if in operation, check for a blown fuse. If the pump is hot, the malfunction may be with the motor, pump, or capacitor. Call Plymouth Plumbing & Heating for a service checkup.
  • Irregular Radiator Heating - Sometimes one or more radiators may not produce heat when the rest of the boiler system is working. Check to be sure the radiator valve is adjusted correctly to produce heat. If it is, the problem may be with a faulty circulator or zone valve. Over time, pipes can also become blocked with corrosion or sludge buildups, preventing heat from traveling throughout the system. These problems require professional attention.
  • Frozen Condensate Pipe - Ice can sometimes gradually form an ice dam inside this condensate drain pipe where it leads outside. A backup of moisture will cause the boiler to shut down automatically. You must clear the pipe before the boiler will restart.
Can You Give Me an Idea of Boiler Installation Cost?

Boiler installation cost will depend on several factors, including the size and type of boiler you need and any related needs, such as piping, wiring, and gas lines. Boilers also come in various grades to fit into different budgets.

Under most circumstances, the installation of a standard gas-fired boiler ranges between $2,500 and $5,000. Installing an oil-fired boiler ranges between $3,000 and $6,500.

I rarely write a service review but feel compelled. Friday afternoon around 1 I called because my water heater was out. By 4:30 Logan had found and retrieved the last water heater in stock in the area ( after much searching ) AND installed it! Friendly, efficient, professional, and SO HELPFUL! Thank you.

Late Friday night we discovered a problem with the drain in the only shower in our house. We tried to clear it ourselves and used liquid drain cleaners to no avail. We knew with the weekend coming up we'd have little luck of getting a plumber out to help us. We called Plymouth Plumbing and Heating Saturday morning and they were on site within 3 hours. The drain was cleared shortly thereafter and the experienced crew person explained why it had happened. When the bill came, we were pleasantly surprised at the price. A good value from a very responsive team. Highly recommended.

We are new to the Plymouth area and had a sewer back up in our house we had only owned 1 week. We called and were told someone would be there in the afternoon. Then we were called and told around noon. Then we were called and told someone would be there in a half hour. Thanks so much for rushing someone over to remedy our issue. Great communication!!!

When I hear Plymouth Plumbing and Heating, I think Family! They are always there for you and have your back when you need them. I was doing a remodel and lets just say it was bigger than a bread box....and Plymouth Plumbing and Heating was there every step of the way! Jamey was the mastermind in the trenches getting things done, but the whole team was there supporting me. When there was a "bump" in the remodel I could call or text and knew it would be handled. Never had to worry when will it get done. Boom Done!I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Plymouth Plumbing and Heating for ALL your plumbing needs!

Jack and the team at PPH have done a wonderful job on our apartment building heating issue. We had another water heating company out here who could not solve the problem. PPH figured it out and fixed it within 2 hours. Thank you PPH!
