For generations, boilers have been keeping homes in the Chicagoland area warm and cozy. When those boilers broke down or needed a replacement, the technicians of Deljo Heating & Cooling were there to help Chicagoans stay warm throughout the winter months.
How Does My Boiler System Work?
Your boiler system heats and circulates water through your home via a system of pipes and radiators or baseboard convectors. As the water in the system cools, it returns to the boiler where it’s reheated and then recirculates through your home in a repeating cycle.

If maintained properly, a boiler system should last between 15 to 20 years, and if yours is in the upper end of that age range, you might want to consider replacement. In fact, here are a few of the ways your boiler system may be telling you that it’s wearing out and needs to be replaced.
- Strange noises – If you hear some unusual noises coming out of your boiler – hissing, knocking, or popping – your system may be telling you it’s time for a change.
- Frequent repairs – If during the winter you’re frequently calling for service and replacing worn out parts, a new system is probably in order.
- Leaks – Water leaks from your boiler should never be ignored. Potentially, the water leakage could lead to structural damage, and things can potentially be more serious than that. For example, there’s also the possibility of life-threatening carbon monoxide leakage as well.
- Fluctuating temperatures – If your system initially heats your house, but then goes cold before heating up again, that’s a pretty good sign it needs to be replaced.
We should also add that while your boiler system may not fall into the “old” category, you still might want to consider replacement. Today’s systems are much more energy efficient than those that were manufactured a few years ago. When your system requires less energy to operate, you will be able to save even more money on future utility bills and operate as a more eco-friendly home.
Deljo’s expert technician can help you calculate the energy savings and final cost of your new heating system as well as our installation services.
Once you have a new system installed for your home or business, we recommend pursuing boiler maintenance at least once per year. By doing this, you’ll save even more money with an efficient system, less frequent repair costs and a long-lasting heating system.
