Common Boiler Repairs in Salt Lake City

Many people prefer boilers to forced air heating systems that use a furnace or heat pump to deliver cool air through the ducts. This is because boilers, which rely on hot water to heat a home, are efficient and quiet. And because they contain so few moving parts, they are fairly durable. Boilers may go long periods of time without any repairs, but they will still come across problems from time to time, just like any mechanical system.

Annual maintenance with a heating professional, like the technicians with At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air, can keep repair needs low and restore some efficiency to your boiler. But the following problems necessitate immediate heating repairs.

  • Sealing Water Leaks: One of the most common repairs for heating technician is sealing water leaks. There may be a leak at the pump, boiler tank, at the joints and seals, or in the expansion tank. A technician can seal some leaks, while others may require new components. In some cases, however, leaks result from corrosion and may require a new unit instead.
  • Removing Lime scale: Hard water (high concentrations of magnesium and calcium) is a common problem to many homes in Salt Lake City. When this affects your boiler, lime scale deposits can build up and restrict the flow of water. This problem is known as “kettling.” Water becomes trapped and steam rises, causing too much pressure in the boiler. This can lead noisy operation and water leaks. A technician can descale the affected areas to get your boiler back to its normal condition.
  • Replacing the Thermocouple: Many people experience problems with the pilot light at some point. If the pilot light won’t stay lit, it could be due to a broken thermocouple. This is a safety device that, when working properly, should shut off the gas when it senses that the pilot light is out. When it’s not working correctly, it will continue to shut off the gas when the light is on. Usually this part will need to be replaced.
