Common Problems With Water Boilers
Standard water boilers are commonly found in residential and commercial spaces. Thermostats activate water boilers after a temperature drop. A functioning boiler will heat water with gas, oil, or electricity. The water reaches warm temperatures and produces steam that emanates throughout the property. Typical water boiler issues include:
- Leaking due to a damaged or broken valve, seal, or pump.
- Low boiling pressure due to a faulty component.
- Failing to turn on when prompted by the thermostat.
- A damaged, broken, or switched-off pilot light.
- A broken-down boiler caused by old age or poor maintenance.
Common Problems With Steam Boilers
You can use a steam boiler for a wide range of residential and commercial purposes, but they are most often used for industrial buildings and large-scale operations. The two popular steam boiler types are fire tubes and water tubes. Residential and commercial steam boilers require less power than industrial ones. Common problems with steam boilers include:
- Lack of water.
- An excessive amount of water.
- An inappropriate mixture of water and steam.
- Combustion and internal damages.
- A leak in the safety valve.
- Abrupt flameouts.
