Boilers are one of the most vital and necessary components of any functioning household. Numerous tasks rely upon a steady stream of warm water at the ready, especially for homes in cold places.
The risks posed by faulty boilers, however, can be dangerous. It is crucial to keep your boiler running at peak condition to ensure the safety of your family and minimise potential health risks. Fortunately, Plumbing-Heating-Gas-Ltd is available to provide reliable repair and installation services for boilers in the Orpington area.
Signs That Your Boiler is Faulty
Having a faulty boiler can endanger your family and your home. Apart from the mounting electricity costs, there are health risks posed by potential water contamination within your boiler. It is crucial to spot any boiler malfunction as soon as you can.
Here are some common signs that your boiler may need urgent repair:
Leaking – there shouldn’t be any leaking by the base of the boiler. This may indicate an unusual level of strain on the unit beyond its regular capacity, thereby wasting energy. If you notice a puddle forming around the base, let us know and we’ll send a team to inspect any damage.
Unusual Noises – This may indicate that there are iron deposits calcifying within the boiler. Water may also be unevenly distributed within the unit. These problems often result in boiler breakdown, so let us know if you hear any odd noises coming from your unit.
Odd odour – Odd odours are typically indicators of gas leaks. This poses a giant safety risk as it may result in explosions, and thus requires immediate attention. Report any unusual smells right away and keep your family safe from harm.
Installing New Boilers
Despite all of the above, there may be times when your boiler is beyond repair. If your unit is over 15 years old and you’ve found yourself having to repair and maintaining it frequently, replacing it with a fresh unit may be the more cost-effective solution. You avoid mounting repair costs and receive a more functional unit that fully suits your household needs.
