Warning Signs You May Need Boiler Repair
All major appliances, including your boiler, give off some type of warning sign as parts begin to wear down or fail. The trick to minimizing damage and the scope of the repair is knowing what to look for. Then call Pohlman Plumbing at the first sign of any issue. Warning signs include:
Low Water Pressure
If the boiler is heating your water but it comes out of your taps in a weak stream, there may be an issue with the boiler’s pressure. While the problem may stem from the main water line, there may also be a blockage or leak—all of which warrant investigation from a trained professional.
Uneven Heat Distribution
If your home has hot and cold spots, or your boiler’s system operation is sporadic, there are a number of potential reasons, including:
- Poor steam quality due to dirty water
- Weak airflow
- Steam trap failure
- Improper pressure setting
Lack of Hot Water
Perhaps the most obvious sign that you need boiler repair in Baltimore is a lack of hot water and/or heat. Possible causes include: low system pressure, broken valve, or parts failure.
Not every sound your boiler makes is cause for concern, but if you notice any new or exceptionally loud noises such as banging, whistling, or hammering, call Pohlman Plumbing for boiler repair to diagnose the issue.
Hot water causes corrosion faster than cold, making your boiler susceptible to leakage. Keep a close eye on the unit and call for repair at the first sign of a leak.
Increased Energy Usage
If you notice an unexplained increase in your monthly energy bills, it could be a warning sign that your boiler is starting to fail or about to break down. One of our trained technicians will be able to determine the source of the increase and make any necessary repairs to help keep your heating costs in check.
Pilot Light Won’t Stay Lit
While the issue may not be with the boiler itself, a pilot light that continues to blow out is cause for concern. Common reasons this may occur include:
- A draft
- An accumulation of dirt on or around the pilot light
- A broken thermocouple
