Boiler Services by Jake’s
Have you noticed a lack of water pressure in your home? Perhaps the water in your shower is taking an unusually long time to heat up. If your home is equipped with a boiler, these seemingly minor issues could be a sign of a far more severe problem.
At Jake’s Heating, Air and Plumbing, we specialize in boiler service, repair, and replacement. With over 200 years of combined experience, our team has the knowledge and training required to identify and resolve any boiler-related issue.
Why Isn’t my Boiler Working Properly?
Contrary to its name, modern boilers don’t actually boil water. Instead, they rely on either a gas-fueled flame or electricity to heat the water (or convert it into steam), which is then distributed throughout a home via a series of heat radiating pipes.
Without regular inspection and maintenance, small valves and seals within the internal boiler components may fail, causing corrosion or even leaks. If you’ve noticed a problem with your boiler, it’s best to contact a technician as soon as possible.
Some common problems that you may experience with your boiler include:
- High utility bills
- A whistling or banging noise while the boiler is in use
- Low water pressure
- The pilot light keeps going out
Time for an Upgrade?
If you are looking for a modern, quiet, and energy-efficient heating solution, you may consider installing a hydronic boiler. Unlike traditional furnace heating systems that circulate warm air throughout your home, hydronic boilers pump steam through sealed tubes that can be installed under the floor or behind baseboards to heat your home from the bottom up.

How can I reduce my energy costs for heating?
- Upgrade to a high-efficiency furnace — New high-efficiency furnaces use up to 50% less fuel than an older system. It can save you up to 25 percent of your home-heating costs in one year, and within a few years, you’ll have recovered the initial cost of replacing/upgrading your furnace. Choosing a model with an energy efficient motor can save 20 to 50 percent of the energy needed to continuously operate a fan motor. Let us show you the advantages of replacing your old furnace today.
- Have an annual maintenance performed — Having an annual maintenance performed on your furnace by a licensed technician will help ensure it operates at its peak efficiency and catches any potential breakdowns before they occur.
- Install a programmable thermostat — A programmable thermostat enables you to control your home’s temperature when you’re away or asleep. For every 1° you lower your thermostat for seven hours per day, you save one percent on your heating bill.
- Don’t block vents in well-used rooms — Keep your supply and return air vents free of objects like blinds, carpets or furniture so your furnace can operate efficiently and there is even heat distribution.
- Install ceiling fans — Change the direction of airflow on your ceiling fans. In the winter, the blades should operate in a clockwise direction helping to push the warm air from the ceiling down into the room.
