An efficient heating system is an indispensable ally in fighting fierce winter temperatures. However, under sever conditions boilers break down and in this case our team of professionals from Norwalk Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning can help. Watch out for the following signs of the boiler malfunction and avoid costly repair bills and unnecessary hassle.
First of all, you should be able to notice warning signs of a failing boiler system. Most homeowners prefer condensing boilers, since they considerably reduce gas and electricity costs. The unpleasant thing about them is that they are more likely to freeze in cold temperatures. Annual preventative maintenance measures are a must in this case.
When your boiler stops heating water, it is the most apparent sign of its malfunction. But the problem could have occurred long before this sign became obvious. One of the indicators of the boiler’s efficiency is the flame color. A well-functioning boiler produces a clear blue flame. If the flame becomes orange or yellow colored, it means the time has come to speak with a boiler technician from Norwalk Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning.
There should not be a sudden rise and drop in boiler pressure, but if there is, it means that your boiler needs a thorough check-up. A bad sign would also be strange and ticking noises when the boiler starts up.
Norwalk Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning provides boiler installation, maintenance and repair services for most boiler models, including steam and gas boilers. We can also service and provide maintenance plans for water heaters and other heating systems. We desire our customers to stay warm and comfortable even through the coldest and uncomfortable weather!
