Signs Your boiler Needs To Be Repaired
Our boilers are not often thought of until we need them. And then after that they do not even get a second thought unless they are not working properly. Commonly boilers like so many other things do not just stop working, often there are signs that give a warning. Some of the warning signs are mentioned below.
One of the most reliable signs that something is wrong with the boiler is the utility bill. A sharp increase in this bill can mean that the boiler is not working properly. Another sign that your boiler needs to be repaired is if it continually turns on and off more than it has in the past.
Another sign that your boiler needs to be repaired is if the pilot light is burning a different color instead of blue. A blue flame shows that the gas and air mixture is set the way that it should be, any other color flame and the mixture is not right.
Usually when a boiler turns on there is some types of noise, but if the noises seem to be louder or last longer there is probably something wrong. Anytime your boiler is making sounds that it normally has not made in the past it is a sign your boiler needs to be repaired.
If the home is always cold yet the boiler always seems to be running there is probably something wrong. Winters can be tough and the temperatures have been record breaking lows lately. However an individual who has been around their boiler for awhile can tell if the constant running is due to a cold temperature or if there might be something else wrong.
Working on a boiler is job for a trained professional, there are too many things that can go wrong, and the results of these things can be terrible. Having someone who is knowledgeable about boilers is the only real safe way to go.
