Boiler Repair Signs to Note
There are several signs to look for that you need to call a professional to fix your boiler, and some may not be as obvious as others. Some of the most common are as follows:
- No hot water (or inefficient heat from radiators)
This problem is the most obvious, and could be caused by a faulty circulator or zone valve.
- Low water pressure
An issue of water pressure can be because of a leak or blockage, and also extend from the main line to impact the entire residence.
- Pilot light goes out repeatedly
If the pilot light goes out more than once, there may be a blockage in the pilot tube.
- Boiler does not start
Check all switches.
- Boiler starts but does not produce heat
- Soot and smoke comes from system
This could indicate a clogged flue pipe or a cracked heat exchanger.
- Unusual noises
Noises that sound like gurgling or whistling may be an indication of air in your pipes.
It is important to note that when dealing with boiler repairs, you should NOT attempt to troubleshoot or implement the solution on your own. In the DIY era we are living in today, it can be tempting to try and fix these issues yourself as they arise. But please let the specialists take care of these reparations for you, as they can be dangerous if handled incorrectly.
