He or she will also know the routine maintenance steps for your model of 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.
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.
