Boilers may seem like commonplace, but that doesn’t mean that their owners know everything there is to know about them. Taking proper care of your boilers at home or your place of work requires a basic understanding of their workings and needs, but where is one to get that information from? Our team understands the importance of this, and since we want you to get the most out of your boilers, whether it be in performance, cost-effectiveness or lifespan; here are some answers to the most commonly asked questions about boilers that will help you make the most of them.
How do I Choose Between Different Brands?
There is no ‘one-true’ solution for boilers, meaning you won’t find the perfect product. The brand that you choose to opt for will have a lot to do with your own preferences, needs and spending power. The best way to approach your choice is to do as much research as possible before making a purchase to ensure that it provides you with the functionality, reliability and economic operation that you need to make it worth-while. Remember though that your initial investment will not reflect the overall cost of running and maintaining the boiler, so be sure to think long-term when making your choice.
When Should My Boiler Be Replaced?
Generally, you will be able to tell when your boiler needs replacing with a slight inspection. Any signs of rust or corrosion can point to problems with its actual structure which will need replacing if it is to be used effectively and safely. But keep a nose out for noxious smells, when boilers age they tend to start giving of emissions of carbon monoxide which can be dangerous if not deadly. If this has happened to yours, you will want to have it replaced immediately.
Can I Tell if My Boiler is Consuming Too Much Power?
As your boiler ages, it may become ineffective. The first sign of this will be a drop in both temperature and pressure, a sure-fire sign that your boiler is working far too hard to generate heat, which may even be damaging it in the process. Beyond this, ageing boilers may have to overcompensate to keep temperatures steady, which in turn will consume far more electricity than is necessary, effectively raising your monthly power expenses.
