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

  • Excellent and prompt service.  The workmen were professional and helpful in their explanation of care and service of the equipment.

  • I want you to know how pleased I was with the entire experience.  From the initial meeting with Chris through the installation of my new A/C unit.

    - Sondra S.( Shaker Heights, Air Conditioning Installation July 2017 )
  • Installers were spot on time at 8 am, took care not to track dirt into house, and were both courteous and friendly.  Excellent quality work to boot!

    - John S.( Cleveland, Air Conditioning Installation, June 2017 )
  • I have had several projects from Verne & Ellsworth, across boiler replacements, heating system installation, and air conditioning system set up and install.  Each of these times, Bill Hann takes a ton of his time to talk to my wife and I to learn about the issues we’re having, explain the root causes of those issues, and suggest fixes that we know will prevent the issues from coming back – not just paper over the issue temporarily.  Lastly, he always delivers on time – onsite when he says he will be, fishing when he says he will – and always makes sure every aspect of the job is completed, from material removal and set up, to equipment install, to clean up after the project.  A++ and highly recommended!

  • The unit is working very well.  The installers were very professional, showed me how everything worked, and cleaned the basement beautifully.  I would never have even known they were there.  Thank you again.
