Hydronic Heating Repair Services for Your Delaware Valley or Philadelphia Area Home

While your home’s hydronic heating system is convenient and extremely energy-efficient, it is not immune to the occasional need for boiler repairs. Since your radiant heating lives beneath the surface of your floors, it can be difficult to access if you aren’t a trained professional. If you need boiler repair for your Philadelphia-area or Delaware Valley home, look no further than your local experts at Len The Plumber. We have provided countless homeowners throughout the region with quality hydronic heating repairs and services. Some common issues that require professional hydronic heating repairs include:

  • Pipe leaks. While these can present serious damage if not addressed, leaks can be prevented through regular maintenance of your hydronic heating system.
  • Frozen pipes. If you experience power and heat loss, your system could freeze up. Our team can ensure that your pipes don’t succumb to freezing.
  • Air lock. Due to your boiler system being pressurized, the occasional air bubble can develop inside your pipes and block water flow. We can inspect your system and ensure that your pipes are free of air lock bubbles.

Hydronic Heating FAQs

What is a hydronic heating system?

Hydronic heating systems pump heated water from a boiler through plastic piping to a plumbing manifold center (a control center used to distribute water throughout the home). The heated water flows from the manifold to the different heating zones in your home depending on the set temperature. Hydronic heating systems may be set up to work with radiant floor heating systems, baseboard heating, or traditional radiators that bring the heated water to floors, radiators, or baseboards throughout the home. Hydronic heating creates much more even and steady temperatures throughout a home when compared to forced-air heating.

Is hydronic heating efficient?

Hydronic heating is incredibly efficient. Water conducts heat much more efficiently than air, so it takes less energy for heat to radiate throughout your home versus being forced through air ducts. Furthermore, the heat produced through furnaces, heat pumps, and other forced-air heating systems can result in hot and cool spots due to imperfect air circulation. Plus, hot air rises, so a lot of the warm air never reaches the people in your home who want to feel it. Radiant heat (via hydronic heating systems) is much more even, resulting in higher efficiency and improved comfort.

How do I know if I have a boiler in my home?

The best indication as to whether your home utilizes a boiler is to note what is going in and coming out of your heater. If you see pipes or tubing, this is a good indicator that your home uses a boiler system, as pipes transport water—rather than ductwork, which transports air. Boilers are often shorter in height than furnaces, which typically stretch all the way to the ceiling.

What are the benefits of hydronic heating over using a furnace?

The biggest benefit is energy efficiency. It takes less energy to circulate water than it does to blow hot air, so hydronic systems will reduce your energy bill. Likewise, hydronic systems don’t require air filters since they don’t produce blowing air, saving you money on filter replacement as well.

Are boilers efficient?

Yes, boilers are very efficient as they use water rather than air to heat your home. Energy efficiency in boilers and furnaces is measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE), and today’s boilers can be as efficient as 98.5%. However, if your boiler is more than six years old, you may not be getting the most efficiency out of your system, and upgrading will certainly improve your home’s efficiency.

How do I know if I need a new boiler?

If your boiler is between 6 and 15 years old, it may be time to consider new boiler installation, for a more energy-efficient model. Today’s models can increase efficiency up to 98.5%! If your boiler is taking longer to heat up, or you see leaks or notice rises in fuel costs, these are all good indicators that it’s time to replace your home’s boiler.
