What is a Boiler?
A boiler is used to heat a home by creating hot water or steam. The most commonly used boiler fuels are coal, natural gas, and oil. However, propane and electricity can also be used. Steam boilers, traditionally the most common type of boiler, heat hot water to produce steam. A steam boiler has pressure gauges, special gauge glass, automatic feeds, and blow off valves that need to function together to keep the boiler operating efficiently. A hot water boiler, on the other hand, is smaller, more energy efficient, and low maintenance. When properly maintained, a boiler can be a cost-effective source for home heating.
Does My Boiler Require Maintenance?
While it’s impossible to anticipate all potential boiler repairs, boiler maintenance should be as proactive as possible. This includes noticing when your boiler isn’t working as efficiently as possible. Ignoring potential boiler problems can create safety issues for any occupants of your home and cause significant property damage. However, there are signs that your boiler may require maintenance. If your boiler system is exhibiting any of the following signs, give us a call and we’ll schedule a convenient service appointment.
Failure to Produce Adequate Heat – Unless you have a major insulation problem, sudden inadequate heating is usually a sign that your boiler needs some type of maintenance, whether it be a thorough cleaning or replacement of worn or damaged parts.
Metallic Odor – A strong metallic odor coming from your boiler could be a sign of an oil or gas leak from a defective boiler. It’s also important to check for a carbon monoxide leak as well.
Strange Noises – Iron deposits can cause an unequal distribution of water, as evidenced by a clunking sound. Any odd noises should be checked to prevent a total system failure.
What Size Boiler Do I Need?
Boiler size depends on several factors. The main factor is the size of the house being heated. Additional factors to consider include the external wall area where the boiler will be located, any existing window heat loss due to insulation issues, the type of flooring in your home, and overall water usage. During your initial consultation, we’ll calculate the right size boiler based on these factors.
