Why Is My Boiler Making Weird Noises?
If your boiler sounds like the encore of a Grateful Dead concert when you turn it on, you may need boiler repair or maintenance. The first step to determining why your boiler isn’t working the way it should be is to ask what type of sound it is making:
- Clunking and Banging Noises? These loud and surprising sounds are often referred to as kettling noises, which occur when limescale or corrosion debris accumulate on the heat exchanger and block the safe travel of water. This can be dangerous, as water steams and expands inside the unit with nowhere to go.
- Whistling Noises? If your boiler is whistling, it could also be caused by kettling, or by trapped air within the system. Fortunately, the solution may be as simple as releasing the trapped air and discovering what caused the air to become trapped inside the boiler in the first place.
- Gurgling Noises? Is your boiler struggling to heat parts of your home? Gurgling sounds could have several causes, such as air in the system, blockages at the bottom of the boiler, or you may have a frozen condensate pipe that will need to be thawed to work properly.

How Do I Know If My Boiler Is Unsafe?
Because boilers contain hot, pressurized liquids and gases, it is important never to ignore signs of damage or disrepair or to put off scheduling a consultation. If your boiler has been making strange noises, or if you can’t remember the last time it has been serviced, contact us today.
We will work with you to inspect, repair, or prevent the following issues:
- Significantly reduced boiler efficiency
- Ongoing buildup of internal debris and limescale
- Long-term interior deterioration
