The boiler is quite noisy

I was in our cabin office yesterday, finally working on a client’s edits, when I heard a really different sound. At first I thought it was just odd feedback from my headphones, or one of the cats running laps again. However, an hour later, I heard it again! That time, I didn’t have my shoes on, so I felt it in my feet! It felt loud! Finally, since my roommates had gone to work for the morning, I took off my headphones and listened to country music on my speakers. I had a lot of work to do, although I wanted to try and hear the  noise again. Forty five minutes later, when the oil heating system kicked on due to the setting sun, I had the answer. The noise started again immediately after! Sure enough, as soon as I went downstairs, the oil boiler made itself heard. The sound itself was pretty deafening; it had a pitch to it that made my ears ring. I know nothing about boilers, however there was a card on the side that the landlord or the Heating and A/C guy must have been using to keep track of service. The last date of service was three years ago. Not only that, however the boiler is 35 years old! I texted our roommates and called our landlord ASAP. He tried to tell me that it was on us to repair the Heating plus A/C, even though it’s nowhere on the lease. After a long week of arguing, our bad landlord is finally getting the boiler worked on.
