Boiler Repair and Installation
If you find that your home isn’t heating well or if you cannot get your thermostat to work all together, then it’s time to give Len The Plumber a call. If your boiler system is experiencing any of the following, then you know it’s on the fritz. These are issues that our fast, friendly certified technicians can take care of to get your heat and hot water running again.
- No heat or inadequate heat in your home
- The boiler’s pilot light won’t light
- Low water levels in your boiler

- Baseboard heating and/or radiator heating not working
- Thermostat not working
Boiler problems like these could be caused by a faulty pump, mineral build up or air in the heating pipes of your boiler. On average, the boiler life span is around 10-15 years. You might consider replacing an older boiler with a more modern boiler. Heating technology has significantly advanced in the past 20 years. A new, energy efficient boiler will pay for itself quickly with the energy you save.
Boiler System Tips
Here are some basic boiler system tips to follow year round. These will help your boiler and baseboard to keep you comfortable and potentially save you money.
- Keep baseboard & radiators clean. A clean surface transfers heat quicker saving you money.
- Air flow through baseboards is necessary to heat your room effectively. Be sure the louvers on your baseboard are open and free of obstructions to allow convection to occur. This too will save you money by satisfying your thermostat quicker.
- Find a comfortable temperature and leave your thermostat alone. More often than not boilers burn more fuel trying to ‘catch up’ after an extended setback. Slow and steady wins the race against high fuel bills.
If these tips are common practice in your home and you are still experiencing trouble with your heat then there might be a problem with your boiler. Remember, Len The Plumber has same day service, Seven Days A Week.
