Nothing beats a long, steamy shower after a hard day – almost miraculously the day’s frustrations dissolve away, tension in your body is soothed, and you feel peaceful. What you don’t want is the spluttering of a faulty boiler to ruin the mood. Best to keep the phone number of your Nazareth, PA 24-hour plumber handy for timely boiler repairs.
- Strange noises
If your boiler is emitting unusual sounds, it could be a symptom of muck and lime scale build-up on the heat exchanger section of your boiler. The resulting restricted flow of water leads to overheating and boiling which, in turn, results in those eerie noises.
- Cold radiators
If your radiators aren’t heating up as much as they should, chances are you have a sludge build-up or a build-up of air. Determine if only the top of your radiator is cold – a straightforward bleed should fix that. However, if it is the entire radiator, it is time to call the boiler experts.
- Switching itself off
A boiler that keeps turning itself off is simply wasting energy without offering the advantage of a cozily heated home. It could be a sign of lower water pressure, a problem with your thermostat or a closed valve. In such an instance, get your boiler serviced sooner rather than later to avoid wasting energy, time, and money in the long-term.
- Water around your boiler
If you notice water drips or leaks around your boiler the cause could be a host of potential problems, including a malfunctioning internal part. If possible, establish the source of the leak as this will help your boiler technician to diagnose the problem.
- Unpleasant smells
If you detect an unusual odor when the heat kicks in, call a repairman immediately to evaluate the problem, as this could indicate a gas leak or incomplete fuel burning, which will release carbon monoxide into your home. If necessary, a boiler replacement may be needed.
