A boiler is a very important part of a home’s heating and cooling systems. Because of its importance and the costliness of repair work, a homeowner has plenty of incentive to catch any problems in their infancy before they get out of hand.
In our experience, there are four common problems that lead to boiler repairs in Denver. We want you to be able to recognize the signs of a boiler issue so you can call in our experts for quick maintenance or repairs that could save you from expensive replacements or overhauls.
Here are the four things you need to watch for in your boiler:
If you start to notice that your boiler is losing heat, it is time to call in an Denver HVAC specialist from Grand Home Services. This is probably the most common symptom we see in failing boilers. It could be a result of issues with mineral deposits, internal atmosphere, water levels, or something else. Our experts can diagnose and solve a problem before it gets serious.
Large water leaks are easy to spot and are clear signs of a problem. Smaller leaks can be tricky. Because small amounts of water can evaporate before being noticed, you really need to be vigilant to spot them. If you believe there may be a problem with your boiler, check often for leaks.
Malfunctioning Expansion Tank
By looking at the temperature gauges on the top and bottom of your tank, you can judge if your expansion tank is working properly. One should register a higher temperature than the other. If they do not, there could be trouble with the internal air or water.
Failing Thermocouple Sensor
If the pilot light has stopped working on your boiler, you may have a faulty thermocouple sensor. Without this sensor, your unit cannot keep track of its heat production. We always recommend calling in a technician in this situation because it can be dangerous to relight a pilot light without professional assistance.
