Common Boiler Troubles
Boilers are known to last for a long time which is why you’re probably not that familiar with it giving you trouble. Some of the most common issues include corrosion, problems with pressure, leaks, and faulty heat output. If any of these symptoms sound familiar, it’s important to schedule a professional inspection right away!
If your boiler troubles sound a little more extreme than this, a repair or replacement service is most likely best. Some of the more extreme symptoms of a faulty boiler include but are not limited to:
- Intermittent/ No Heat: If you are experiencing intermittent or no heat throughout your home, broken diaphragms or airlocks can be the culprit. A trained expert will be able to determine if the problem is caused by the fault of the boiler pressure or issues with a broken thermostat.
- Problems With Pilot Light: If the blue flame located under the boiler is not lit, then your pilot light is not on, meaning the boiler can’t work. New boilers rarely ever have this problem so a replacement boiler may be the best option.
- Kettling: If your boiler is emitting loud noises you could be experiencing build up in the pipes. Limescale or sludge are common culprits for build up in a boiler. This can cause the blockage of water inside the heat exchanger which causes overheating, resulting in the loud, hissing sounds known as kettling.
- Boiler Keeps Turning Off By Itself: Your boiler definitely shouldn’t be switching off by itself so if it is, you may be dealing with a restriction blocking the flow of water and resulting in low pressure.
At the first sign of trouble, you should schedule an inspection for your boiler. Our heating technicians take the time to get to the bottom of your boiler issues, providing the most effective boiler repair.
