Monday, November 3rd, 2014

Boilers are durable heating systems, but it is likely that, at some point, your boiler in Davison will need repair. Sometimes it isn’t always clear when a problem has developed with your boiler, so our Davison Heating & Cooling specialists have put together a list of some signs to help you determine when it’s time to schedule a repair appointment with your Davison Heating & Cooling expert.

Signs It May Be Time for Repair 

  • Water leaks – water leaks can develop in a number of areas with a boiler system, including circulating pumps, valves and piping. Water leaks can lead to water damage, so it’s important to call for a technician as soon as you become aware of a leak from your system.
  • Some outlets work, some don’t – with a boiler system, you can have heat distributed through radiators, baseboard heating and radiant floor heating. When one of the outlets isn’t supplying heat, this can be an indication of a few problems, including air lock, a leak or scaling in the piping.
  • Too little heat – if your heat isn’t reaching the temperature set on your thermostat, it’s time to call for a technician. A number of problems can cause this, including problems with combustion, the piping system or the fuel line. There are many reasons you can experienced decreased heating, so it’s important to call a trained technician for help.
  • No heat – the complete lack of heat usually involves issues with the combustion, which is something no homeowner should handle him/herself. Instead, call a technician for immediate help.
  • Strange noises – if your boiler appears to operate but makes a strange noise every time it starts, it’s important to call a technician.
  • Strange odors – your boiler shouldn’t have a strong odor when operating, so if you smell something that seems off, don’t ignore it.

Problems with your boiler won’t fix themselves, and typically become worse with time.
