Plumbing and Heating, just like other fields, uses a unique vocabulary. Although some homeowners might use the terms “boiler” and “water heater” interchangeably, the two apparatuses serve separate functions. Armed with this knowledge, you can better understand boilers and their purpose in a home.
Before we tell you why boiler repair in Chicagoland matters, let’s first discuss what a boiler does. Most boilers use gas fuel to create and then send heat into a nearby heat exchanger. This heat exchanger then connects to cold water pipes, where it heats the water in the pipes. That hot water then travels through your wall heaters or radiators.
Your boiler requires regular maintenance to avoid wear that could result in further problems, such as misdirected heat or no heat at all. Consult Bishop Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling for boiler repair in the Chicagoland area.
As critical heat suppliers, boilers must tolerate high temperatures and heavy use. And, like any appliance that undergoes constant use, boilers may cause dangerous circumstances when not properly cared for.
To avoid mishaps or damage from a worn boiler, contact a licensed plumber and heat technician for semi-annual boiler inspections. Your technician can check for signs of current/future boiler dysfunction:
- A boiler that’s over 20 years old
- Strange odors
- Inadequate or no heat (even after checking fuses and circuitry)
- Clunking noises
Of course, boiler inspections and maintenance only work when your service provider recognizes problems before they occur. Avoid unnecessary guesswork by calling a trustworthy technician.
