Common Boiler Repairs

Common Boiler Repairs

It’s that time of the year when you will be turning on your heating system, so it might be a good idea to be aware of some common boiler repairs that may occur.

It’s always the case that the start of the winter season is when our heating engineers see an influx of boiler related problems. Here are some of the most common issues that occur with your boiler:

Problems with Circulating Pumps

If your boiler uses hot water to heat the home, you should see red, square components on the piping. These components are small pumps, known as circulating pumps, that push the hot water up into your heating outlet – i.e. radiator, baseboard or radiant heating tubing. These pumps are electronic, and problems can develop with the wiring or the circulator wheel inside the pump, causing it to malfunction.

Leaks

The boiler within the home is designed to prevent leakage, which is why if you see a leakage, you need to call for repair right away. Even if the leakage is small it still indicates a few things could be very wrong, such as corrosion with a pipe or a joint that has gone bad. Leaks depressurize your heating system and can lead to water damage, so it’s important to have any leakage you see repaired as soon as possible.

Pressurization problems

Having the right pressure inside your boiler heating system is critical for proper heating. Your boiler has a special component called the expansion tank that helps ensure that the pressure in your heating system is stable. However, problems can sometimes develop with the expansion tank that impede its ability to work properly, which then adversely affects the pressure in your heating system.
