Twelve top tips to avoid Boiler Repair Emergencies:
1. It may sound as if there is a Mutant Ninja Turtle in your noisy boiler wielding a spanner, but the banging is usually caused by the rapid expansion and contraction of the internal mechanisms. Take your time to get all the relevant information together and, if necessary, to calmly check all the possible causes of your boiler problems.
2. You'll want to make sure that you get a full warranty and support, so that you know you will be covered if there are any problems with your boiler, or it isn't working as you'd expected it to. You won't want to be without heat or hot water at any time, especially in winter.
3. It's essential that the fitter or installation company you choose are experienced, and are well practiced at fitting biomass boilers such as wood burning heating systems and wood pellet stoves. You won't want to be the first customer.
4. Prevent scale accumulation in boiler tubes, which impedes flow and heat transfer, by properly maintaining water treatment systems. This also minimizes boiler blowdown. Potential efficiency gains of 10 percent -- 12 percent.
5. Do take care that the system is tight and there no visible leaks anywhere in the system. Have your system serviced regularly so that an expert can assess the system for potential or existing leaks.
6. Getting value for money is essential, and so choosing the cheapest quote might not be the best option. You'll need to make sure that you're dealing with an experienced installer, who will provide you with the correct, reliable and suitable wood heating system, in a timely manner. You can't afford to get your heating system wrong.
7. Do be sure to use an expert HVAC technician trained to inspect and maintain boilers. Not all heating contractors are thoroughly trained or experienced with boiler systems- make sure that yours is.
8. Gas boilers can be very efficient and cost effective, if they are maintained and cared for well. Read on to learn more about the maintenance of these heating systems.
9. One thing you can check for on your central heating boiler is types of corrosion or leakage. If you see that the boiler's outer casing is flaking off or gathering growth, you will want to clean it up with a steel brush while the unit is off. This is from the metal's natural exposure to oxygen over time as it is heated and cooled, and eventually will eat away old boilers. It is likely if you see this type of breakdown on the outside of the boiler that it is equally as polluted on the inside of your pipes. In extreme cases where the metal is flaking off in sheets or chunks, you will want to replace the entire boiler and flush your water system.
10. The cost of a new boiler is likely to be quite high, and so there may be payment schemes or other benefits or help available. Again, your installer should be able to help you find the information you need.
11. You'll want to make sure that you're dealing with a qualified installer, who knows what they are doing. You don't want to end up with the wrong boiler that doesn't work properly and doesn't meet your needs. Your wood pellet boiler installer should be MCS and HETAS qualified, and also be a REAL member too.
12. If you choose a local installer, you will be reassured that they are likely to know the area, and so have some idea of your heating requirements, and the type of home or workplace they will be installing in. In addition, they won't have to travel to far to install, commission and service your boiler.
