Your boiler is a vital element of your home, it’s important to always ensure your boiler is functioning correctly. A broken boiler means your home has no heating or hot water, which at this time of the year is what you want to avoid.
To help you avoid this, there are common problems with commercial boilers you should look out for.
If you find water leaks coming from your boiler, this is never a good sign. Even if there’s no water visibly dripping, many boilers experience steam leaks which are forced out of the stack. If this occurs, you may need to get a plumber in to fix the problem and get your boiler working correctly again.
You may find your boiler is losing pressure. If you want your boiler to work efficiently at optimum capacity, make sure the steam pressure is constant. Similar to your home boiler, it needs to be within the high and low points.
Loss of pressure is commonly caused by steam leakage, which sometimes, you can’t see. There could also be problems with the return system like the check valve, feed pumps, or steam traps.
If you find strange and loud noises coming from your boiler, these might be signs there is air in the system. A knocking, gurgling, or whistling sound might mean the water pressure is too low or even that that there is a build-up of limescale.
Loud noises aren’t something you should ignore. It’s best to get your boiler checked by an experienced professional to prevent any current problems worsening.
Over time, built-up scale and debris can increase your energy bills through heat loss throughout your boiler system. It’s best to get a professional heating engineer to solve these problems and help you prevent reoccurrence.
