The Four Most Common Boiler Problems
Boilers are complex pieces of equipment but are highly durable and typically require little more than annual maintenance. However, problems, such as those below, may eventually occur. Instead of diagnosing them yourself, the best approach is to call a qualified professional contractor for repairs.
Kettling: Does your boiler make a deep rumbling or banging sound, like a tea kettle about to boil over? This is called kettling. It is triggered by a buildup of pressure due to a blockage in the boiler’s heat exchanger. Kettling is not normal and is a symptom of a significant problem. A kettling boiler is more likely to spring a leak or suffer from dangerous pressure that can put your home at risk. If you have not yet called a contractor to inspect your boiler, now is a great time to do it.
Leaking and Dripping: Another reason to call a qualified technician is when your boiler begins to leak. The leak may be coming from a pump or a pressure relief valve, or even from condensation! These issues can be quickly repaired. If the leak is coming from inside the boiler itself, however, it could mean that the boiler has begun to corrode and needs to be replaced.
Pilot Problems: In the past, pilot lights had to be lit and left running all day and all night so that you would always have heat available. Although some boilers still use this method, modern boilers use electronic ignition. If your boiler’s pilot light is giving you trouble, you should call a heating contractor to diagnose and repair the pilot or ignition issues.
No Heat: A boiler may occasionally malfunction and stop providing heat. The problem could be related to the ignition of the jets on the burner, a failed electronic igniter/pilot light, trouble in the gas line, a broken pump or safety switch, or a number of other possible problems. If your home is cold because the boiler has stopped working, it will require a trained professional contractor to fix it.
