Signs of Boiler Trouble
A boiler that shows the following signs could really use our professional attention. We understand how that can be a difficult request, especially since you’re happy to have made it through another winter in one piece. Getting your boiler fixed in preparation for the next winter can be good motivation though!
- Strange sounds. Boilers are conveniently one of the most silent heaters in existence. When you sign up for boiler installation, you’re getting a system that doesn’t require air to be blown anywhere, which means they function without any “wooshing” of air or any other noises. So, that being said, if your boiler makes any noises that sound uncomfortable, it’s probably because there is something clearly wrong with the system.
- Foul odors. Is there a foul odor coming from your boiler or any of the pipes connected to it? Foul odors are not a normal occurrence and can be a sign that there’s something wrong with your boiler and it needs to be repaired. Especially if you utilize a gas-powered boiler, you could be smelling flammable gas or smoke.
- Low efficiency. Boilers are incredibly efficient heaters. If you’re dealing with low efficiency as seen in your increasing heating bills, then there’s potentially something wrong with your boiler. Leaving it for the next heating season could lead to you forgetting it and paying the price when you fire the system back up again.
- Ineffectiveness. What’s the point of having a boiler heating system if it just doesn’t work the way you want it to? A boiler should heat your home effectively, and if it doesn’t, then there could be something wrong with it. Instead of just forgetting about it, it would be a great idea to have a professional fix it before the next season, don’t you think?
