That Noise May Not Be Normal!
All too often, boiler noises are ignored as if they are normal. Your boiler should operate fairly quietly. Some noise is to be expected, such as those noises that indicate mechanical operation. However, you do not want to hear loud bangs, rumbling, and teapot-like kettling from your boiler.
These unusual noises are typically caused by mineral deposits like limescale building up on the inside of the boiler’s heat exchanger. Eventually, these mineral deposits can build up enough to restrict or block the flow of water through the heat exchanger. Contact your heating professional for immediate service. The contractor you hire will make sure that your heat exchanger is clean and free from sediment accumulation.
Kettling is not the only noise that might arise from your boiler. You may hear a gurgling sound in the pipes that are connected to the boiler and run through the house. Gurgling may be accompanied by uneven heating or no heating at all. It is often caused by air bubbles in the pipes that obstruct the flow of water and reduce the system’s ability to heat. Once treated by a qualified boiler contractor, the gurgling should stop.
Instead of waiting for issues like these to occur, arrange for maintenance during the warm months of the year to ensure that your boiler doesn’t break down when you need it most.
