With the temperatures rapidly plunging outside, being without heat is not only uncomfortable, but dangerous as well. The reasons behind your boiler system not working could be a simple answer, but your best bet would be to call a professional to inspect every part.

Flushing the system is the best way to handle this problem, but it is recommended that you allow a professional to make the repairs.
