Common Boiler Repair Issues
Boiler repair may be one of the last things to keep on your To-Do list, but To Do, you must.
Boilers can last anywhere from 30-50 years without encountering any major issues. Once initial signs of rusting appear, however, the damages can be serious, so be sure to contact a San Diego plumber specializing in boiler repair immediately to avoid any further complications. Perry Plumbing has been handling the boiler issues for local home and business owners for over 35 years. If your boiler is demonstrating any of the signs below, make sure to give us a call at 619-472-2112 or schedule plumbing service here. A family owned and operated plumbing service with an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, we provide a two-year guarantee on plumbing work, up-front pricing and convenient 2-hour service windows.
Typical boiler issues include:
Leaks: Most leaks are due to failed seals in the water pump but others develop from mineral build-ups in the pipes. The pressure in the system increases and forces water out at its weakest point. The leak can be patched, but it is usually better to remove the affected line and replace it. Other leaks can be due to faulty bleed valves and pressure release valves.
Failing Chimney Liner: Excessive heat or age can cause chimney liners to fail. The failing chimney impacts the roof structure.
Water Pump Bearings Failing:A grinding sound whenever the boiler kicks on could mean bad bearings in the water pump. The pump will need to be replaced. Because many parts for the older boiler have dropped off the market, you may be forced to purchase an entirely new boiler system.
Thermostat Problems:Uneven heating or a failure to maintain the temperature setting could mean a thermostat malfunction. A professional plumber can replace a thermostat quickly.
Air in the Lines: Air in a closed system is a bad sign. Banging pipes and cold rooms at the furthest point from the boiler indicate a leak.
Warped Boiler Doors: Warped boiler doors release dangerous combustion gases, including carbon monoxide, into your home. Solutions include repair with a high temperature caulk, replacement with a new door and complete boiler replacement.
Carbon Build-Up: Boilers should be cleanedannually. Carbon soot build-up reduces the efficiency of your burner and increases dangerous combustion gases. A simple cleaning can increase your boiler’s efficiency and increase indoor air quality at once.
