Most Common Boiler Problems
Our HVAC contractors can assist with boiler problems of all shapes and sizes, including:
· Lack of hot water or heating: Possible reasons involve broken airlocks, diaphragms, impaired valves, faulty thermostats, and lowering water levels. If you notice this issue, check to see if the cause is due to a problem with your thermostat or boiler pressure. If the issue is due to an impairment within your airlock, valve, or diaphragm, a professional will need to install a replacement part.
· Leakage: The reason for a leaking boiler depends solely on the location of the puncture. However, the most prevalent cause is an impaired internal part, like a pressure valve or pump seal. A malfunctioning pump seal will require a replacement part, whereas a leak stemming from the pressure valve might indicate that your boiler pressure is excessively high.
· Low Pressure: If your boiler pressure becomes too low, your heating unit might not be working correctly. Low pressure can be a result of a water leak, faulty pressure relief valve, or impaired radiators.
· Kettling: If you hear an odd noise resembling the sound of a kettle heating, deposits such as sediment and sludge, might have accumulated in your boiler’s heat exchanger. This buildup restricts water flow, prompting it to steam, boil, and produce a “kettling” noise. This issue will strain your boiler and may reduce its lifespan. An expert technician will be able to flush your system out and eliminate the buildup to restore your unit.
