The Flame is No Longer Blue
If you look into your boiler, you will see a flame. It should be blue. If it is yellow, this indicates that carbon monoxide is building up in the boiler. This can make you, your family, or your staff very sick. If you see a yellow flame, evacuate and call a professional, immediately.
If you hear strange noises coming from your boiler, this, too, could be a sign that it needs repairs. There are a number of reasons your boiler might be noisy, and all of them are generally minor issues. However, these noises are also a sign that if you don’t fix the issue now, it could become a big problem.
If the boiler heats up slower than it has in the past, you could need a repair for this. You might be able to take care of this with a tune up, or there might be other issues. Either way, you need to talk to a professional.
