In your New York home, the boiler is a complex element to the heating system. Being very durable, however, the boiler requires little maintenance. With time, use, and wear, it can eventually occur that when you do notice a problem, it is often a surprise. NY NJ A/C Connection has listed common boiler issues in the event you own a boiler instead of a forced-air heating system like a furnace. Before the extent worsens and becomes more costly, knowing what you can expect can help you better recognize issues and get them repaired.
1) Gas Boiler Heater Pilot Light Troubleshooting
Throughout the day and night so heat was always available, pilot lights in the past can be left running, often used by older boilers. The use of an electronic ignition to heat water only when needed is the method modern boilers use. In the event you cannot light a pilot light on your own you will need heating technicians to diagnose pilot and ignition system issues.
2) Is a Dripping & Leaking Boiler an Emergency?
Should the result come with an emergency, when a boiler begins to leak, a more common issue than people think, call your trusted HVAC professional for immediate assistance. If the leak is coming directly from the boiler tank, you have got a major problem on your hands. Because the boiler has likely begun to corrode through, a replacement is required. If it stems from a pressure relief valve or a pump, there are things that can be repaired from the boiler leaks. In some instances, the leaks are simply condensation.
3) Boiler On But No Heat to Radiators
When we get a call about no heat coming from a boiler, there is really no telling what we may find. To consider what the problem could have to do with ignition, there are many possible problems. The safety switch could be preventing the boiler from staying on, or the thermostat may be broken, a pump may be broken.
4) Boiler Kettling Noise
When the boiler makes a loud banging or rumbling sound, a major problem common to a hot water boiler, kettling is a term used. Utilized in the industry to describe these sounds, this term may be unrecognizable to few but is common. Call a professional as soon as possible to avoid an even more serious problem. The sounds should not be dismissed and need to be investigated. Caused from a surplus of minerals, within the water supply, there is a disruption. Typically, due to the hard water, the mineral deposits change the pressure levels in the tank. A kettling may be more likely to spring a leak or suffer from dangerous levels, from dangerous levels that put your home at risk.
