Do you know why it’s so important to get timely boiler repair in Long Island? Well, ask yourself the following question:
Have you ever woken up on a cold winter’s morning, gotten out of bed, taken a few steps across the floor… only to jump back into bed again because the room’s freezing cold?

But if you haven’t, then guess what? The team at Rebmann Plumbing is going to help you make sure you don’t ever have to suffer through that unpleasant experience. And the best way to do this it to know what the signs are that your boiler’s malfunctioning.
You Need to Schedule Boiler Repair in Long Island When…
It doesn’t take a lot of time or energy to check on your boiler. Just keep an eye and/or an eye out for the following signs:
- Strange sounds. All boilers make some noises when operating, and you get used to them after a couple of days. But if your boiler starts making really loud noises or unusual sounds like clanging or squeaking, then something’s not right.
- Failure to heat. If your home’s heating isn’t working at all, then there’s something wrong with the boiler. It could be a problem with the heating element or it could be a leak in the system.
- Odd smells. It’s imperative to be alert to strange smells. Gas or carbon dioxide leaking from the boiler into the home could make you sick… or have even worse consequences. (So always be sure to have a working carbon monoxide alarm installed!)
- Leaks: If water is pooling underneath the boiler or somewhere along the connected pipes, you need to have the appliance checked out.
- Age: Boilers typically last 10 to 15 years. If yours is older, you probably want to look into replacing it with a newer, more energy-efficient model.
And remember: there can still be other signs you need to have a professional look at your boiler system. When in doubt, call Rebmann Plumbing!
