Being skeptical and knowing that such a replacement would be cost prohibitive, I was able to find found someone who specialized in boilers and works at Prompt Heating...

Boilers are also called 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).
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

How much does it cost to fix a boiler?
A boiler needs inspecting to diagnose the problem. Price is a chief concern when you need boiler repair, and you’ll never get surprise costs with Prompt. We’ll give you a fair, firm price before getting to work.
Should I repair or replace my boiler?
The first consideration is the boiler's age. On average, a residential boiler lasts 15-20 years. This varies depending on how often the boiler was professionally serviced and maintained. If you suspect your boiler needs replacing, the most important thing is safety. Get it inspected by a professional to make sure the boiler meets modern safety standards. If your heating bills and boiler repair costs increase year after year, it’s a sign you might be better off replacing your boiler with a more efficient unit. Give us a call and we’ll come take a look!
Why is my boiler leaking water?
The first thing that comes to mind is flawed installation. Corroded pipes, valves or tank can let water escape, too. If mineral buildup leads to excessive pressure, water may leak from the valves. Seals around the boiler pump could also be worn and need replacement. In some cases, the pump itself is damaged. As time passes, boilers can also develop stress fractures, which can cause leaks to develop.
