It requires a true professional to diagnose a boiler system that isn’t working properly. A boiler system has 3 major elements.
- Boilers- A boiler’s purpose is to heat the water that is pumped through the system piping to baseboards, radiators, or in-floor heating in Waukesha County. Boilers are available in high efficiency boilers, as well as standard cast iron boilers. Many companies manufacture boilers some of the most common being Buderous Boiler and Weil Mclain Boiler.
- Boiler controls- Boilers require controls in order to direct the heated water to the correct area of the residence. Some normal controls are zone controls, zone valves and relays.
- Boiler piping- The boiler piping system is in charge of carrying the heated water to the area of your Waukesha County house that is calling for heat. Common components of the piping system include recirculating pumps, air removal systems, valves and system piping.
When all 3 components of your hydronic heating system are working together a boiler heating system is a great way to heat your place. Here are some (frequent|common|ordinary} boiler problems that require boiler repair or hydronic heating service.
Air in pipes
Over time a boiler system can develop air pockets in the piping system. When this occurs the boiler system makes knocking or gurgling sounds. Air in boiler lines can stop the flow of water in the system and cause no heat in an area of your house or at a specific radiator or baseboard. There are several products available today to prevent air from forming in boiler piping. A Boiler Guru from Polar Express can help you choose the right air elimination system for you and your Waukesha County house.
Zone valve replacement
Zone valves are frequently used to control the route of boiler water. These valves open and close each time a thermostat calls for heat in a particular area. Over time the valves or the zone valve motor will stop working and no longer allow water to flow through it.
Over time sediment will build up in the heat exchanger of a boiler. When a large buildup is present the boiler will rumble when it’s heating water. This is why it’s so important to have annual maintenance on your boiler. Flushing a boiler can be dangerous, but a trained professional like the heating and cooling pros at Polar Express Heating and Cooling. We can safely flush the sediments out of your Waukesha County boiler, increasing its efficiency and life expectancy.
