Do you have a leaking boiler?
What would your boiler do if it thought you had a leak but couldn’t see any form of leak? We must first determine the type of boiler that he owns. It is a combination of boilers, boiler systems or boilers. For hybrid boilers and systems operating at high pressures, there is only heat, and the boiler sometimes pressurizes or operates at low pressure.
With all boilers under pressure, a pressure gauge will be installed at the front of the boiler or near the pipe. The leaking boiler is not always a leaking boiler, I know this sounds weird, but it is true. All boilers operating at high pressure must be fitted with an expansion tank inside or outside, which is usually the cause of boiler leakage.
So how do we solve the problem of leaking boilers?
First, you must check your boiler every year. If you decide not to inspect the boiler, you will need expensive repairs or even new boilers in the future.
So why is it important to repair the boiler?
The days when he did not bother to repair the boiler were over. These boilers were very basic and were not affected. The most common problem is that the thermal coupling must be changed. These boilers are not efficient. About 40% of the fuel costs are not at home, and the remaining 60% is used to heat the system. Since the introduction of high efficiency condensing boilers, it is very important to put them into operation every year. These boilers (boiler service london) are designed to provide optimum performance and, most importantly, save you energy costs. When repairing the boiler, we first check the chimney to ensure combustion products, to ensure everything is safe, no gas leaks or burning. Spelled correctly.
We use a combustion analyzer for combustion measurements and check that the boiler is operating in compliance with the boiler manufacturer’s specified parameters. If the reading is incorrect, we will conduct an additional investigation to determine the cause and then we will start over. Then let’s take a look at the most common problems with these boilers. Expansion tanks, expansion tanks are a very important part of boilers and heating systems. If it doesn’t work, you will run into problems. The most common problem is the pressure loss of the system. Most people describe it as a leaking boiler. In fact, it is not a leaking boiler, it is a problem with the expansion tank. The boat must be inspected annually and the boiler restarted for optimum performance. When the ship is not inspected, it will stop working over time.
When calling a registered gas boiler service technician to repair the boiler, please check if the expansion tank is inspected and restart if necessary. For some reason, when a boiler is put into use, the expansion tank does not seem to have been overhauled, not always overhauled, but about 80% of the time. When using the boiler, when reading the boiler manufacturer’s instructions, they indicate that the expansion should be checked and reset if necessary.
So how about the expansion tank?
The best way to describe an expansion tank is to deflate it like a car tire. The container is the same, it is pumped with a car pump and its pressure is adapted to the type of heating system it has. If the container loses pressure, it will begin to fill with water. Once this happens, most people start thinking they can have a leaking boiler. The expansion vessel functions by absorbing the expansion of the heated water in the heating system. If the container has no internal pressure, it will be filled with water. Once filled, your boiler will begin to release water through the pressure relief valve to relieve pressure and prevent the pipe from exploding.
