Boiler servicing best way to avoid Common Problems

by | Oct 13, 2014 | Plumbing

Homes with boilers can experience common issues that can prove to be costly if not addressed early enough. Regular boiler servicing Bristol home owners schedule is the best way to avoid issues.

Common Problems

Lack of heat is of course a major issue for a boiler. This can be caused by broken diaphragms, a broken thermostat, improper levels of water and even valve issues. If you have a noisy boiler it is not only annoying but also a symptom of many issues. Common sounds can include everything from banging and gurgling to an unsettling hissing sound. These sounds are often caused by water pressure problems as well as having air in the system. Water pressure issues can also be a sign of leaks. Leaks can cause serious damage to your home including mould and mildew. A slow leak or persistent dripping can be caught by boiler servicing Bristol companies offer and they can arrange for a repair before serious flooding occurs. Thermocouple issues will often cause your pilot light to go out, but drafts can also be at fault. Your condensate pipe can sometimes freeze and your service man can defrost it for you. If your boiler seems to keep shutting itself off there is a good chance something is amiss with the thermostat. Your service call can help decide if this is the case or if it is due to other issues with the valve or pressure.

Common Service

Boiler servicing Bristol service companies offer will often include clearing clogs in radiators as well as looking for signs of lime scale build up. Regular service will include:

1. Defrosting your condensate pipe
2. Addressing noise
3. Flushing out your radiators
4. Lime scale cleaning
5. Leak detection and repair
6. Pilot light check

As they make their way through the issues they will also advise if it looks like it might make more sense to have a new boiler installed.
