Choosing the Right Boiler System
Before installing a new boiler system, we will help you consider several important factors to ensure you are choosing the appropriate system, including:
This is an important consideration, so make sure you determine the ideal size of your device by measuring the area in which you wish to place it. There are many different boiler options to accommodate diverse needs, such as liquid petroleum gas boilers. These take up less space and are more convenient for homes with a limited area.
Approximately 60% of CO2 emissions from households using gas heating come from the boiler unit. When purchasing a new system, ensure that the appliance is energy efficient to reduce these emissions, thereby saving on energy bills.
There are systems that use gas, oil, wood, or LPG as a fuel source, with each having its own benefits and drawbacks. While wood-burning can be convenient, it can also be an expensive fuel to source if the material is in short supply. Modern developments have provided many alternatives, such as LPG, a more efficient fuel than gas or oil.
- Requirements for venting
It is essential to look at the ventilation needs of the boiler system. Some devices have a chimney setup, while others need to push used air through a wall opening. Ensure that your household can accommodate the output requirements of the boiler being purchased.
Advantages of Installing a Boiler
Boiler-operated heating offers several benefits, from economical to environmental. Among the many beneficial aspects are:
- Energy efficiency
Water is a medium capable of holding heat for significant periods. Thanks to the natural properties of water, boilers heat the home evenly by transferring thermal energy between solid objects.
- Increased property value
If you are considering selling your home or simply looking to increase the property's overall value, having a new boiler unit is a helpful feature. An attractive addition to prospective buyers, boiler systems improve efficiency and keep the home's utilities current.
- Financial Savings
By introducing boiler-operated heating to your home, you can reduce energy bills over the long term. This efficient method of heat distribution lessens both household cost and environmental impact.
Boiler Repair: 5 Common Issues We Can Fix
If your boiler isn’t working as well as it should, five common issues require immediate attention.
1. The boiler isn’t radiating heat
If your boiler isn’t heating your home, there may be an issue with the thermostat. Try replacing the batteries to get the system back up and running. If that doesn’t solve the problem, there could be a faulty motorized valve or broken system diaphragm. These complex components will need to be replaced by a professional.
2. The boiler’s leaking
If your boiler’s leaking, there’s likely an issue with one of the internal components. A leak from the pressure relief valve signals that the boiler pressure may be too high. If the leak is around the pump, a seal may have worn out and need to be replaced. Corroded pipes can also cause leaking. It’s best to have an expert come and determine the source of the leak.
3. The boiler’s making bubbling noises
Do you hear loud bubbling noises coming from your boiler? This phenomenon is called kettling and is usually the result of excessive limescale or sludge accumulating on the unit’s heat exchanger. Kettling makes your boiler work overtime, which can cause it to wear out prematurely. We can flush out your system to ensure your boiler continues to run smoothly.
4. The boiler has low pressure
Ideally, your boiler pressure should be 1.5 or 12 PSI. Otherwise, it won’t work correctly. Several issues such as a system leak, recently bled radiators, or a faulty pressure relief valve can cause low boiler pressure. Rather than waste your time trying to get to the root of the problem on your own, call a professional to diagnose and fix the issue promptly.
5. The boiler’s pilot light doesn’t stay lit
If the pilot light on your boiler won’t stay on, you may have a problem with your thermocouple. Alternatively, the gas nozzle could be covered in carbon. First, call your gas supplier to determine if they’re experiencing any service interruptions. If that’s not the issue, call a professional. Gas is a highly flammable substance that must be handled with care.
Regular boiler maintenance can help prevent many of the issues mentioned above. At Modern Air & Water, we provide commercial and residential customers with professional boiler installation, repair and maintenance services.
