A boiler is one that rarely requires repair though it is a complex piece of equipment. Boilers require little maintenance and are highly durable, making them fairly beneficial. Though it does eventually occur over time and use, when you do notice problems with your boiler, it is often a surprise. You should take a look at some of the problems you might come across when you own a boiler instead of a forced-air heating system like a furnace. There are two very different systems aside from their ignition systems. Identifying issues can help, however, routine preventative maintenance may be a good option for your home. We at Ambient Heating & Air Conditioning would like to share common boiler repairs.

Boiler Pilot Light Problems
Pilot light may not be what it used to be. Heat was always available in the past; you had to light the pilot light and leave it running throughout the day and night. Some boilers still use this method where others use electronic ignition to heat water only when needed. In the event you cannot light a pilot light on your own, you will need heating technicians to diagnose pilot and ignition system issues.

Boiler Running But No Heat
When we get a call about no heat coming from a boiler, there is really no telling what we may find. While the problem could have to do with ignition, there are many possible problems to consider.
