Boiler Repair

Comprehensive maintenance and repair for any Cleveland boiler

Don’t let a broken boiler leave you out in the cold

A home’s heating system is such an integral part of comfortable everyday living that it is easy to take it for granted until disaster strikes. If your home has a boiler heating system, regular maintenance is needed to make sure that everything is in working order when cold weather hits. Hiring a licensed Cleveland heating professional to perform a seasonal tune up can go a long way in ensuring your boiler’s energy efficiency and extending its life.

From drips to strange noises: common boiler problems

Fortunately many boiler problems can be caught early if you know the proper signs and symptoms. Homeowners in Northeast Ohio experience the following issues with their boilers:

  • The boiler is not getting hot/heating water, which may be due to failed components, or controls.
  • The boiler is leaking water, which may result from a cracked boiler section, pressure valve, or indicate that the water pressure is too high.
  • The boiler is making strange noises, including banging, whistling, or gurgling. Such noises could indicate that air is trapped in the system or that the water pressure is too high. Your boiler may also be experiencing kettering, a phenomenon that occurs when a boiler makes a kettle-like sound due to the buildup of minerals that restrict water flow.
  • The boiler has an odd smell, which may mean that it has a dangerous natural gas leak or other ventilation issue that must be dealt with immediately!
  • The pilot light has gone out, which will stop the flow of fuel in gas-powered boilers.

If your Cleveland boiler is due for a tune up or if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms of boiler distress, we recommend calling a reputable heating company as soon as possible.

What People Are Saying

  • Bill carefully examined the old boiler and piping, checked all the radiators and came up with a replacement proposal.  He explained two issues with the old boiler that other contractors did not notice or did not care to explain.  The first was what’s causing the rust in the boiler and how he was going to minimize the issue in the new system.  The second was how he would re-pipe the kitchen loop so the kitchen wouldn’t be so cold.  Bill addressed each and every question I had.  Although we received four bids that were comparable, we chose Bill Hann’s company because he was knowledgeable, thoughtful and detailed.  The work was completed in two days by a great installer team.  They were on time, professional and courteous.  The new boiler and piping work nicely without any issues and we now have a comfortable kitchen to dine in.  I’d highly recommend them.

  • I strongly recommend Verne & Ellsworth Hann without reservation.  Choosing the right boiler was important and proper installation was critical.  I was impressed with all aspects of the Verne & Ellsworth Hann organization.  Most importantly, Bill Hann earned my trust.  The installation team was excellent.  They were experienced.  They arrived precisely on time every day.  They explained every step of the process.  They worked as a team.  They treated my home with extreme care, as if it was their own.  The installation is a thing of beauty.  Every time I go into my basement I smile.  I now have a reliable, efficient system.  I don’t usually take the time to write recommendations, but in this case I am doing so because it is so well deserved.
