A boiler can be a much more efficient for heating than a standard system for some people, but it’s also vital to make sure boiler repairs are kept up on. The right maintenance can save you costly issues, and prolong the life of your boiler for years.
At All Hours Plumbing, Drain Cleaning, Heating & Cooling, we offer comprehensive boiler service for any issues that arise. You ca help us out, too – there are several telltale signs that there might be issues taking place in your boiler. Here are a few of the most common.
Leaks are an abnormal situation for a boiler unit. They can cause water to accumulate at the base of the boiler, and water loss will limit the operational capabilities. This will cause the boiler to use more fuel than normal, and will raise your utility bills. If you notice any pooling water near the boiler, speak to our professionals right away.
If you notice clanging, rattling or hissing sounds in the boiler, emergency service is likely needed. This is a sign that there are iron or sludge deposits, which can lead to overheating and automatic shutdowns in the boiler. If not addressed, these issues can result in wasted fuel and a permanent inability to maximize boiler function.
A negative odor can signal a gas or oil leak, which can cause hazards and increase costs due to wasted fuel. While you won’t be able to smell it, these kinds of leaks might also mean that carbon monoxide is leaking out and causing health issues for people in the building.
If you notice these items in the boiler room, it could be a sign that there are issues with thermal tacking and heat loss. These issues will often require immediate service.
Each of these corrosion-related items can often be the precursor to fuel loss, building damage and health issues. They tend to signal insufficient cleaning in the system, but quick attention here can often ward off larger issues before they come.
