If your home has a boiler, you likely have a gas or an oil boiler. One of our professional employees can help you identify the type of boiler you have if you’re unsure and provide the required repair or maintenance. Numerous common issues can arise from a heating system’s boiler. Sometimes the problem can be that your boiler’s thermostat isn’t on or is not adjusted to the appropriate settings. The electric wiring of the thermostat should also be adequately examined to ensure connection. If a clear problem cannot be identified, you may need to replace the thermostat.
Your thermostat may not be exposed to enough heat and has become frozen. This issue can be solved by moving the thermostat’s location to a warmer one. Your boiler may have a burned-out element. During long winters, the boiler’s element may burn out when your heating constantly runs. You can tell that your boiler’s element has burned out because of discoloration or signs of wear and tear. If this is the problem, you’ll need to replace the boiler’s element.
Low water levels can be a severe problem for your boiler. Lower water levels can be an indication that there is a problem with the tank or one of the valves. Low water levels can also be caused by a leaking seal or other forms of damage.
