Do It Myself?

Q. Can I add fresh water to my boiler?
A. Don’t! Routine maintenance to a boiler is better left to a registered professional. Losing water from a closed system can be caused by a the failure of a component or a miniscule leak. Let us help.
Q. Can I live with noisy pipes like in the movies?
A. Winter nights in Minnesota can be uncomfortably cold if your boiler fails.
Seriously, noisy heating pipes are a symtom of a future failure. You might have a simple leak that, caught early, can be easily fixed in the daylight. Banging puts stress on heat pipes and joints and should be attended to.
