Common Radiant Heating Repairs

Using radiant heat—heating up objects inside a room with hydronic power so they send out waves of warmth into the space—is an efficient and extremely effective way of maintaining winter comfort in your home. Radiant heating can work through in-floor pipes, baseboard heaters, or the more traditional radiator.

An advantage of radiant heating systems is that they require few repairs because they have only a small number of moving parts compared to furnaces and heat pumps. But they can still incur repair issues, and you will need to call on professionals to handle these problems should they crop up.

For heating repairs in Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas, call on At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air. We can deliver repairs any time of the day or night, so don’t hesitate to give us a call when your home comfort comes under threat.

Some Common Repairs for Radiant Heating Systems

  • Fixing the manifold: For in-floor radiant heating systems, the manifold is one of the most important components: it distributes the heated water to the various pipes that move through the floor boards. If the boiler of your system still seems to be working, but you are receiving uneven heating, the problem may lay with the manifold.
  • Sealing leaks: Leaking is rare for in-floor systems, but still can occur—and when they do they must be taken care of as soon as possible. If you see water seeping up through the boards, call on technicians right away to remove the flooring to access the pipes and seal them. Leaking can also occur in other radiant systems around the boiler and its connections. Any sign of water pooling near the boiler calls for repairs.
  • Repairing/replacing the circulator pump: One of the few mechanical parts of a radiant heating system is the circulator pump, which is responsible for moving the heated water from the boiler and out into the pipes. If the pump breaks, it can either be repaired or replaced.
  • Flushing the tank: If the boiler tank begins to pick up debris or hard water deposits, technicians can flush it out to keep the system clean. Tank flushing is sometimes done during routine maintenance—make sure you schedule a maintenance visit once a year.

Keep your home and family warm and cozy this winter: at the first indication of trouble from your radiant heating system, call up the At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air team. We will handle your needs for heating repair service quickly so you can return to enjoying your winter.
