When it comes to your boiler, it can be difficult to handle any repairs on your own. There is significant pressure, temperature and flammable natural gas that make it nearly impossible to work on it without the right training and experience. Even though you may not have the experience and training needed to handle repairs, you can definitely be aware of the signs that indicate there is a problem. Ambient Heating & Air Conditioning is here to run through some of the biggest signs that you should be watching for.
Boiler On But No Heat to Radiators
This one may seem obvious, but when you turn on your heat and it isn’t warming your home, you have a problem with your boiler. There are several reasons you may be experiencing this. You could have thermostat issues, failing valve circulation pump, loss of water and more. It’s best that you trust a professional to get to the bottom of this problem.
Boiler Leaking Water
If you find that there is leaking water and it’s coming from your boiler, you need to get help fast. Water can do extensive damage to your home, and you don’t want it to sit for long. Some leaks are a quick fix, while others may be a big problem that is much more complicated.
Boiler Making Strange Noises
You probably don’t realize your boiler is operating when it works to heat your house because they don’t make much noise, and you are used to the noise they do make. If you notice that all of a sudden you hear gurgling, whistling or rumbling noises, you need to take steps to figure out what’s going on. The only way to safely do this is to call on a professional heating technician to do it.
Boiler Pilot Light Keeps Going Out
A pilot light that is having problems is nothing to mess around with. Depending on the color of the flame, you could be dealing with serious carbon monoxide issues. A pilot light that keeps going out may have a problem with the natural gas as well which shouldn’t be ignored. This can be a huge safety issue and should be fixed professionally, as soon as possible.
Low Boiler Pressure
Like mentioned above, there is a certain amount of pressure involved to keep your boiler working. If the pressure falls below the minimum amount needed, you could have issues with the boiler shutting off completely. It is designed to do this for safety reasons. There are several reasons this could be happening and should be looked at by a professional.
