How Do You Know When a Boiler Needs Repair?
Since boiler systems are in older homes and buildings, chances are you have inherited or moved into a location with boiler heat. So how do you know when it needs repair? From noises to operational issues, these are some of the most common boiler problems with some clues that it is time to call DUCTZ for service:
Boiler Loses Pressure: The steam pressure should remain the same within high and low points if you expect the boiler to work at a high level. Steam leakage causes pressure loss most commonly, and some of this you might not be able to see. Loss of pressure can also mean that there are problems with the return system.
Boiler Making ‘Strange’ Noises: Knocking, whistling, or gurgling within the boiler can indicate that there is air in the system, the water pressure is too low, or there is a lime scale building on the boiler’s heat exchange. Proper gas pressure is vital, so our service techs check for this along with proper flame, air intake, and exhaust.
Blockage in Boiler: Blockages, such as scale buildup, can cause a heat transfer, resulting in higher utility costs.
Boiler Switching Off: If the boiler turns off, the problem could be a pressure loss, a bad thermostat, a blocked valve, or the pump does not push water through the system the right way.
Water Leaks from Boiler: Water leaks are a sign that problems could arise very soon. Even if there is no water dripping around the area, steam leaks can be forced out of the stack.
