Common Boiler Problems
The boiler in your Delaware home is, in general, a reliable and durable machine. But even the best boilers are susceptible to problems. The most common boiler repair questions we get are:
- Why isn’t my boiler firing up? – A serious problem with a number of possible causes. Your boiler’s motorized valves or air locks may be broken. A malfunctioning or incorrectly-set thermostat could also be the culprit, as could a broken pump.
- Why is my boiler making loud noises? – Banging or rattling noises coming from your boiler may indicate the buildup of hard water deposits. The noise is caused by the water trying to navigate its way through smaller passages. A grinding noise often means that some of the boiler’s moving parts require lubrication.
- Why does my boiler’s pilot light keep going out? – If your gas boiler’s pilot light keeps going out, you may have a broken thermocouple or air seal.
- Why is my boiler leaking? – If you see water pooling around the bottom of your boiler, it may be leaking from the pump, the expansion tank, or the boiler tank.
These are just a few possible symptoms and causes of boiler problems. If you are experiencing any of these issues, or your boiler just isn’t performing like it should, contact Peninsula for repair in Delaware and Maryland.

How Can I Keep My Boiler From Needing Repairs?
Professional boiler maintenance can keep your gas, oil, or combination boiler from needing expensive repairs. Peninsula can provide regular maintenance with a service plan, or you can call us any time to come take a look at your boiler in Delaware or Maryland.
You should keep your boiler clean and check it throughout the year, but winter and summer are optimum times for comprehensive maintenance checks.
Winter Boiler Maintenance
A winter boiler maintenance check should include:
- Clearing debris from ventilation areas and combustion air openings.
- Verifying the boiler’s water level and testing the low-water fuel cutoff.
- Testing flame detection devices and looking for any evidence of soot or smoke.
- Making sure the boiler floor is clean and clearing the boiler furnace of any debris or other material.
- Testing the safety valve.
- Performing additional checks and tests, depending on the type and brand of your boiler.
Summer Boiler Maintenance
Summer boiler maintenance helps ensure that your boiler will operate at its peak when it starts to get chilly. A summer boiler check usually consists of:
- Thoroughly cleaning, draining, and flushing the boiler, cleaning the firewalls and checking the unit for any damage or corrosion that could affect its performance.
- Lubricating all mechanical moving parts.
- Testing all controls, interlocks, gauges, and shutoffs.
- Checking all piping for leaks.
- Doing additional checks and tests, depending on the type and brand of your boiler.
