A boiler is a very common appliance that is found in many homes. As a result, many homeowners have a wide variety of questions regarding boilers.
What is a Boiler?
A boiler is a device or appliance that is used to heat water. This heated water can be used to produce steam, which will heat the air for a building, or simply used for washing and bathing purposes. There is a distribution system for both the heated air which consists of pipes that will take the air to a steam radiator. Once in the steam radiator, the air will pervade the room and take it to a comfortable temperature. There will be a network of pipes that will take the water, if the boiler is used for heating water, to the sinks and taps that need it.
Does My Boiler Require Maintenance?
Every boiler ought to be maintained on a regular basis in order to ensure that it remains fully functional for the entire year. Regular maintenance will also prolong the overall lifespan of the boiler and allow it to not have to be replaced as soon. There are also numerous signs that a boiler might be in need of immediate repair.
One of the primary signs that a boiler might not be working correctly is if the boiler is producing a smaller amount of heat on a whole. This ties in with the sign that the house takes a longer time to heat up than it used to. Both of these signs show that the boiler is not working as well as it used to and is not able to keep the temperature of the building comfortable. In order to increase the comfort level, the boiler will need to be repaired.
Another sign that a boiler needs to be repaired are if there are rooms or spots in the house that aren’t receiving heat and are therefore cold. This can be a result of a circulation system that is not functioning well enough due to blockages. When this is the case, a boiler repair company needs to be called to clean out the boiler and the steam pipes. This will restore efficient circulation and make sure that all areas of the house receive heat.
One last set of signs that point to a need for boiler repair are if there is a lot of noise, combined with energy bills that have been greatly increased. This could mean that the boiler is not functioning in some way and therefore needs to be repaired.
What Size Boiler Do I Need?
In order to figure out the size of the boiler that is needed, a professional needs to measure the square footage of the house. Because a boiler needs to produce approximately 50 British thermal units per square foot, the square footage should be multiplied by 50 to get the Btu measurement that is used to choose a boiler.
