Wheaton IL Boiler Repair
Wheaton IL Boiler Repair – Armbrust Plumbing & Heating Solutions – 630-547-7500
Signs your boiler needs professional repairs:
- -No hot water. The most apparent sign of a boiler problem is, naturally, lack of hot water. While this could happen simply because your thermostat is set low it might also signal a larger problem. For instance, lack of hot water can result from low pressure. However, a likely cause is often a broken component or valve that calls for replacement. In any case, call us for Wheaton IL Boiler Repair if you experience a hot water problem.
- -Water pressure too low. If you do have hot water but it only trickles out weakly, there may be an issue with the boiler’s pressure. Take a look at the main water line’s pressure. Otherwise, a frequent cause of low water pressure can be leaks or a blockage within the system. If you think this is the case, just call Armbrust and we’ll dispatch a Wheaton IL Boiler Repair expert to help.
- -Banging sounds. Unusual noises emitting from a boiler can be somewhat disruptive. In some cases, air within the system may be why you’re hearing those noises. Air can emit gurgles, whistles and banging noises. Although, there might be another cause too. Banging sounds may also indicate that a pipe doesn’t fit correctly, for instance. In that situation, our service technicians can refit or make adjustments to your system’s pipes. Pump malfunction is also a potential cause of unusual boiler sounds. As a boiler’s pump ages, it tends to get louder. This is an issue our plumbers can identify and replace as necessary.
- -The pilot light continually goes out. Your first notion may be to simply light it again. However, check out your gas supply before doing so. If the gas is not working, contact your gas supplier.

Common reasons that pilot lights go out include:
-A draft of air blows it out.
-A thermocouple breaks
-Leaks and drips. Because a boiler’s main function is heating water, leaks resulting from corrosion are common. Many components of your boiler are vulnerable to corrosion inside the boiler and on its external valves and pipes
Our Wheaton IL Boiler Repair experts can find and stop leaks to restore proper function to your unit.
Do boilers really “boil” water?
No. “Boiler” is a term from past days when steam boilers were widely in use. They would boil water to produce steam. Contemporary boilers serve as water heaters and usually consume natural gas. Many can heat water to a range between 145 to 190 degrees.
How do boilers make heat?
Boilers produce radiant heat, which serves to warm objects within a space. In contrast, forced air furnaces warm up air within a room. Some homeowners prefer boilers since they may set their thermostat to a lower temperature. Others believe that boilers offer more balanced heat levels throughout their home in the winter time.

What are some of the most essential parts of a boiler system?
-Is your boiler a standard or high-efficiency make and model? Standard efficiency is typically vented in metal pipes. High efficiency models should vent into PVC pipe either off the unit’s top or to its side.
-Which type of radiation do you own? Fintube, baseboard or cast iron?
-We recommend yearly maintenance to verify your boiler functions safely and its most efficient. Furthermore, yearly maintenance can help detect problems and prevent service disruption. This is essential for assuring your home remains comfortable all winter long. After all, no one wants to deal with a sudden loss of heat on a winter night. Armbrust’s Wheaton IL Boiler Repair experts can keep your boiler in optimal condition.
What are some common reasons why boilers breakdown?
Pumps or electrical parts like controls or thermostats can malfunction. Also, excess air might get inside the system or water pressure drops can happen too. Either can lead to the system not forcing the water enough, meaning the boiler is unable to radiate heat. In some rare instances, water can even freeze if conditions are cold enough. Illinois snowbirds should take precautions before leaving for the winter by having boiler maintenance done. Lastly, if you use a setback thermostat, be sure to leave the settings no lower than 55 degrees.
