Boilers are also known as hydronic systems because they use water instead of air to distribute heat in your home. Some hydronic systems circulate the hot water through pipes and radiators, others use radiant floor heating (circulating the hot water through tubing in your floors).
When your boiler stops providing the efficient, comfortable heat boilers are known for, we have your back. Prompt Heating & Air Conditioning provides expert boiler service to homes and small businesses (such as a store, restaurant, or office) in Milwaukee and the neighboring cities.
We work on all different types of residential boiler heating systems including hot water boilers (the most common type), steam boilers (less common), and combination (combi) boilers that provide both heat and hot water.
Give us a call to talk to an experienced technician about the boiler problems you’re having. If we can figure out the issue over the phone, we will. If we need to come out for a service call it includes diagnosing the problem and providing a full estimate for repairs and parts.
Whether you have a common or unusual issue with your boiler, the best thing you can do it call Prompt Heating & Air Conditioning and talk to one of our technicians. We have the experience to diagnose and fix your boiler problem the first time – sometimes we can even help you troubleshoot it over the phone.
We have years of experience fixing boilers in and around Milwaukee and can help you with problems like:
- Your boiler keeps turning off
- You hear banging, whistling or gurgling sounds
- Radiators are hot at the bottom but cold on top
- Pilot light is out
- Boiler is dripping, leaking, or losing pressure
On repair service calls we provide diagnostics and a firm estimate for full repair. Every boiler repair job is backed by our two-year workmanship warranty.
We recommend homeowners have their boiler serviced by an HVAC professional once a year. Regular boiler service can prevent costly boiler repair work down the line and keep your boiler running efficiently. Making a habit of seasonal boiler maintenance will also help your heating system have a longer service life.
A comprehensive boiler inspection & tune up typically includes:
- Checking shutoff valves for potential leakage & proper function
- Checking for signs of damage and overall integrity of the refractory
- Inspecting the fuel feed system and cleaning as needed
- Removing buildup from heat transfer surfaces
- Looking for indications of corrosion, erosion, or overheating
Homeowners can also perform some routine maintenance by checking on the pilot light and water level, making sure air vents and flues stay clear, and keeping an eye out for leaks. It’s also a good idea to control dust buildup on the fan which can decrease efficiency.
Call Prompt Heating & Air Conditioning for a boiler tune-up or sign up for our yearly service plan for seasonal maintenance and discounted rates.

Boiler installation & replacement
We offer free boiler installation estimates and are happy to help you determine the right equipment and size for your home.
On average a boiler in a residential home will last about 15-20 years. Your boiler could have a shorter or longer lifespan depending on the exact type you have, whether it’s the right size for your home, and how well it’s been maintained.
Signs your boiler might be ready for replacement:
- Energy bills are higher year after year (it can mean your boiler’s getting less efficient)
- You’ve had multiple repairs done in the last 2 years (boilers need the most repairs in the last 2 years of their service life)
- Your radiators are taking longer to get hot, or water doesn’t get as hot as it used to
- You notice a smell around the boiler (it should be odorless)
The best way to find out if repair or full replacement is called for is by consulting a boiler technician. We’ll give you a free estimate on new boiler installation, and every job is backed by our 2-year workmanship warranty (on top of the manufacturer warranty).
