Your boiler is one of the most necessary appliances in your home. With the frigid winter temperatures in northeastern New Jersey, you can’t afford to have a faulty furnace. Heat isn’t a luxury in this part of the country-it’s a necessity.
So when you have problems with your boiler, if it isn’t heating your home efficiently, or thoroughly, if it’s making strange noises, or taking a long time to start up, you need to call a professional technician . Don’t ignore the signs of a faulty boiler and hope they’ll just “go away”. What could be a low-cost repair might become much more costly due to your negligence. Contact your hometown repair and service pros at Woolley Home Solutions.
There are many reasons your home’s heating system could be acting awry, especially if your boiler is older. Many of the common signs are easy to spot. As a homeowner, you should perform random visual inspections of your home’s boiler, and take note of anything that looks suspicious, or perhaps, wasn’t there the last time you checked. Some items you may notice:
Leaks, especially large ones, are always a reason for concern. As your system performs year after year, your pipes and their connections can become clogged with sediment or naturally-occurring debris. The build-up of debris can cause your pipes to leak, creating the need for your furnace to work much harder than necessary. Left unaddressed, your boiler could break down. Call a technician and repair any leaks you see immediately, before the damage is irreparable.
Noises such as whistling, clanging, or a vibration, may signal issues. If you notice any sounds that are unusual, come on suddenly, or increase, contact a professional to assess the situation. Some noise is normal, however clanging, pinging, rattling and whistling can be common signs of a loose seal, clogged vent, or possibly a faulty gas valve. Only a professional boiler repair technician is qualified to safely repair your boiler.
Odors coming from your boiler can be common and, surely, you’re familiar with these benign smells. If you notice any unusual odor, contact a boiler professional immediately. This could be a sign of any number of issues with your boiler, some of them dangerous.
Of course, you can avoid turning a minor repair into a major and costly repair or replacement by having your boiler inspected and serviced regularly.
