Signs You Need a Boiler Contractor
Boilers have been around for a long time, but over time we’ve come to learn about their flaws. Get in touch with a technician if you run into any of the following:
Boiler Turns On and Off
If the device begins to switch on and off for no apparent reason without making any measurable changes to the temperature in your home, there may be an issue with how it communicates with the thermostat.
Sometimes, if you listen carefully while the boiler is running, you can hear a low grumbling sound. This is what’s known as kettling, and it indicates the presence of scale buildup in the heater exchange.
Gurgling or whistling sounds coming from the unit are never a good omen. In many cases, this is caused by water levels—either being too high or too low—in the system.
Boilers function by delivering heat to different components in your home. If this heat can’t reach its destination, there’s no way for them to warm up. This is frequently the result of an obstruction or decaying pipes.
No Hot Water
Mechanical failures might explain why no hot water comes out of taps and fixtures.
Hot Water Boilers vs. Steam Boilers
Here at RupCoe Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we service both hot water boilers and steam boilers. Here’s a breakdown of both systems:
Hot Water Boilers
These devices work exceptionally well and there aren’t many parts that can break, which means repair costs are kept to a minimum. After some time, however, circulation can break down and you could experience leaks. This is when you need to call in a professional.
Steam boilers are more temperamental than hot water boilers. They need regular maintenance because they rely on consistent air pressure that must be constantly regulated for heat to be distributed properly.
