Staying Warm in Brooklyn: Signs You Need to Replace Your Boiler


Fall is here in Brooklyn and winter is on its way. Before things start cooling down dramatically, it might be time to have your home boiler checked out by a certified technician. Your friends at Petri Plumbing can help you get the most use out of your existing boiler or advise you on replacement options.

Trouble signs

There are some signs that your boiler might be failing. If you’ve noticed that it is leaking or dripping water, it’s a sure sign something is going on. It could be a broken part or the pressure could be set too high.  Whatever the case, it’s time to bring in a professional plumber to evaluate the condition of the boiler and advise you on what to do next.

Other warning signs:

  • Does your home have hot and cold spots?
  • Is your gas consumption unusually high?
  • Is there water on the floor around your boiler?
  • Having trouble keeping your boiler on?
  • Have you experienced warm temperatures in one room of your home while an adjacent room is significantly colder?

Boiler replacement

If you notice these problems, your home boiler may be in need of replacement. Repairs can help solve some of these issues, but the longer you wait, the more you’ll end up spending in service calls. Replacing an older boiler with an energy-efficient model will pay for itself in reduced utility bills within a few seasons.

Petri Plumbing is certified to repair or replace Viessmann, Baxi, Noritz, Navien, Bosch, and other tankless boilers. Petri Plumbing is also certified to repair or replace your standard atmospheric boilers such as Burnham, Weil McLain, New Yorker, Slant/Fin, and H.B. Smith.

If you’ve been noticing problems with your boiler, the team at Petri Plumbing can advise you on replacing your existing boiler system with a new model to save money. If you need assistance, contact us at (718) 489-2921 today to learn more about your options.
