A boiler can act as a water heater alone or supply your central heating system with steam or hot water via a radiant floor system or baseboard radiator. These units play an integral role in maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature. If your boiler malfunctions, you can count on us to get it working again—and fast.

Reliable Boiler Repair Service
Our boiler repair services are fast and reliable to ensure that your household has a steady supply of hot water during the cold winter months. Here are the most common boiler defects:
- A build-up of minerals: Such as calcium, magnesium, or hard water can damage your boiler. Mineral deposits cause loud banging noises and increase the risk of leaks.
- Boiler leaks: May indicate corrosion in your boiler tank. If the leak comes from the pressure valve or pump, we have to repair or replace these components.
- Pilot light or electronic ignition problems: Prevent you from lighting the main burners that heat the water.
- No heat: Can be the result of many different causes. In most cases, a pilot light, safety switch, or broken thermostat is to blame.
Do You Need a Boiler Replacement?
Older boiler systems have efficiencies ranging from around 60% to 70%, where a modern unit can have energy efficiency as high as 99%. If your boiler is old and inefficient or has an oversized capacity, we will typically recommend a replacement.
Low winter temperatures in Downers Grove, IL means investing in a system with the highest efficiency usually makes financial sense.
