Boiler Services in Centennial
Boilers burn fuel, such as oil or gas, or use electricity to run. Since they have fewer moving parts than forced-air heating systems, they typically require fewer repairs.
They heat up water, which is then moved through piping and radiator circuits to heat your house. There are also steam boilers, which have an extra step of turning the water into steam before distributing it. After the water or steam heats the radiators and cools down, it’s brought back to the boiler to start the cycle over.
When your boiler is having problems, it will let you know. If you notice any water leaking out of it, call us right away to come seal the leak and replace any lost water. If there is a leak, it can cause oxidization inside the boiler, which will produce corrosion if not stopped. Sometimes we can replace parts, such as the heat exchanger, if they become rusted, but if the rust is too extensive, you will need to get a new boiler.
Overheating boilers will make a rumbling sound. This happens when there is too much pressure and heat built up in your boiler. It can cause serious damage if not fixed.
If your boiler is on but you aren’t feeling warm air coming from your radiators, it could mean a problem with the circulator pump. This pump moves the hot water from your boiler through your pipes to heat your house.
The buildup of sediment and limescale in your boiler’s tank can make your boiler not produce as much hot water to heat your home. We can come flush your tank to get rid of this buildup.
Electric boilers use heating elements to heat the water. If one of these breaks, you won’t get enough hot water to heat your home.
Steam boilers are more likely to have worn gaskets, valves, and seals because they operate at higher temperatures and pressures than other boiler types.
There are many benefits to having routine maintenance:
- Increased efficiency
- Fewer breakdowns and repairs
- Longer equipment life
- Greater safety
When our expert technicians inspect your boiler, we will make sure everything is running smoothly. We will clean and inspect the heat exchanger, flame sensor, and ignitor and flush the condensate system. We will check connections, water pH levels, and the ventilation system. We will also verify that all safety and operating controls are working.
