5 Signs Your Oil Boiler Might Need Repairs

Whether you are heating a home or a business, your oil boiler can fail for several reasons. As a reputable provider of boiler repair services in and around Milford, we've created this piece so that our customers can spot the signs that indicate that their boiler needs repairs.

Equipment is Old

Like all mechanical equipment, boilers wear down over time and require maintenance and repairs. If your equipment is older than 15 years, it may very well be time that you consider a replacement.

Strange Smells

Damaged boilers tend to leak. If your boiler is leaking oil, you may notice an egg-like or metallic smell. Although carbon monoxide is odorless, many gas suppliers add sulfur to make the gas give off an odor and be detected easily.

Power Faults

If your boiler doesn't run after it has been switched on, there could be a power supply problem. A technician will be your best bet for getting to the bottom of a power issue problem quickly and efficiently, especially during the colder months.

Delayed Heating

When a unit is functioning efficiently, heat should be produced very quickly after switching on the boiler system. If it starts to take longer and longer for your boiler to produce heat, you might have a circulation issue. You may also notice your unit shutting down frequently to avoid overheating.


In most instances, the issue can be solved with a single repair, but sometimes a newer, more advanced model is necessary.

Insufficient Heat


When your boiler is producing heat, but your home or office never seems to reach the predetermined temperature, there could be a heat delivery issue. These issues can be caused by many variables, including short circuits in the thermostat, or buildup inside the tank.

When you run your boiler, check the thermostat settings. If your building fails to reach the desired temperature, it’s time to call a professional.
