What Is a Boiler?
Your boiler is a hot water heater that releases steam or hot water, which circulates through pipes and radiators to warm your home. Steam boilers are less common in modern home construction than hot water boilers, and have different engineering constraints. If your home uses radiant heat from the ceiling or the floor, you're using a hot water boiler for home heat.
The other differentiation between types of boilers is how they generate heat in the first place - most in the US use natural gas lines in urban areas, while more rural construction uses a fuel oil burner. In both cases, there's a pilot light that heats the water.
If something should happen to the boiler in your home, you will find that you can lose heat in your home. This can be very troubling especially in the winters where the need for heating is critical. At C&D Plumbing Inc., our experts can help remedy these issues efficiently and professionally.
What Are Common Issues with These Units?
- Circulatory Issues: The most common boiler problem is circulatory. The system no longer sends hot water or steam through your radiators making your home cold and uncomfortable. While the problem is common, the diagnosis can be tricky.
- Intermittent Functionality: When the boiler in your home comes on and off and fails to function at all times, this is a problem. This can be caused by many issues and requires expert diagnostics to determine the correct cause.
- Strange Noises/Scent: Strange sounds or scents from the boiler, are symptoms of residue buildup or an improper pH balance on the water in the tank. Our plumbing services company can help with this problem and restore the quality of the water.
