Why is My Boiler Leaking Water?

If you have a boiler in your home, you know this appliance is essential to keeping your space warm and cozy during cooler months.  Although a quality boiler is built to last for a long time, there are some instances where it may need significant repair. Most frequently, maintenance is required when you are experiencing a leak.

Why would a boiler be leaking water?

Leaks are common amongst a variety of appliances, however, they can be more of a cause for concern when it comes to your boiler. Generally, if this appliance is leaking water it may be caused by a cracked pipe or valve. These issues can arise as your boiler gets older as a result of regular wear-and-tear. 

Why is a water leak a bad sign for a boiler?

Not only does a leak indicate that your furnace is in need of repair or replacement, but it can also lead to additional issues. If your leak goes unnoticed, it can result in rusting and additional damage to your unit and surrounding electrical components. 

What services can be provided to fix a leaking boiler?

If you are experiencing issues with your boiler, it is imperative that you call in a professional as soon as possible to have the leak addressed. A technician that is skilled in boiler repairs will be able to quickly identify the source of the leak and develop a plan for restoration or replacement. Due to the risks that a water leak presents, you should turn off your unit until you can have it looked at by a technician.

We love our Kinetico whole-home water treatment system.  No residue around our faucets.  No smelly well water.  My wife loves what Kinetico water does for her hair and skin and the Sherck boys LOVE the Kinetico K5 Drinking System (They fill their water bottles before hockey and soccer practices).

Clean, healthy, great-tasing water.  That is Kinetico!”
