Common boiler problems
If your boiler is not running at maximum efficiency or is in need of repair, it cannot properly do its job of keeping you warm.
An old or neglected boiler can suffer from a variety of issues, including:
- An inaccurate or faulty thermostat – sometimes causing the boiler to turn on and off randomly
- Broken parts leading to no heat being generated or leaks
- Low water levels or low water pressure (a pressure valve may need replacing)
- Worn-out seals or rusting
- Making strange sounds such as banging, whistling or gurgling (often due to air in the system)
- Lime and sludge buildup causing reduced water flow, over-heated water, or malfunctioning radiators
- Frozen boiler pipes outside the property
- Gas leakages
Our professional plumbers are trained to identify and fix all of the above types of problems and more if your boiler stops working or is not running at maximum efficiency.

An essential part of the boiler repair setup and maintenance:
Although it is often overlooked on new installs and routine yearly maintenance, it can be critical to the life of your boiler, furnace or hot water heater. Unfortunately, Gas appliances often get hooked up and simply turned on by the installer, who may assume that the factory has done their job of calibrating the gas-to-air ratio.
If your boiler is constantly full of soot or dirt, you likely have a combustion issue! Let Alpha Plumbing ensure your gas appliances are set up and running correctly.
We use the latest combustion analysis technology to measure the combustion levels, then adjust them so your appliance is optimized both for efficiency and for safety! The result is a gas appliance that achieves clean, complete combustion and burns the exact engineered amount of gas.
Don’t clog up your gas burners and savings account by burning too much gas - let us get you dialed in!

Frequently Asked Boiler Question:
What is the Best Boiler for my Calgary Home?
What is the Best Boiler for my Calgary Home?
With the built in capabilities of the boilers we install, it is now entirely possible to heat, supply hot water, and heat your hot tub with one gas appliance. There is no longer the need to pay the expensive utility bills for a furnace, hot water heater and electric spa heater. Not only do today’s highly efficient boilers do the job of three appliances, they are smart enough to throttle down to a minimal firing rate when there is a lesser demand for heat, thus burning much less gas, and saving you money!
