Boiler Breakdowns: How Professional Repair Contractors Can Help

2 Minutes Posted on:

If your property relies on an older boiler system for heating, it may eventually break down. This can be devastating to face in the moment, but there are fortunately contractors who specialize in these heating systems. They can help you approach boiler breakdowns in a couple of key ways.

Supply a Temporary Replacement For Extensive Repairs

Some boiler repairs might require a couple of days to complete fully. Maybe a part needs corrosion removed or there is something happening with the thermostat that controls the boiler. Whatever the case, you can have a temporary boiler system supplied by repair contractors who service said heating systems.

This way, you'll still be able to heat your home properly until your original boiler is fixed in a permanent way. The temporary boiler will still work great in the meantime. You just need to let your repair contractors know if one is warranted or not based on the boiler issues you're dealing with.

Restore Energy Efficiency

If you've had the same boiler on your property for more than several years, it may have lost some of its efficiency. This can happen for a couple of reasons, such as dirty parts and combustion burners not working how they're supposed to. For energy efficiency issues, be sure to hire a boiler repair contractor.

They can pinpoint your efficiency problems quickly thanks to their detailed inspections, which will focus on parts related to efficiency. These components might include the heat exchanger, thermostat, and insulation of your home. They can then make the necessary repairs that restore efficiency back to the right levels. 

Remove Limescale

Some older boilers have limescale that builds up. It can affect a lot of different components in this heating system so if you suspect it, be sure to hire a boiler repair contractor. They have the ability to remove it in a safe, effective manner—restoring the performance of this heating system in no time.

They can drain your boiler and then send a limescale removal product through it. That should be enough to descale this system and subsequently help it get back to normal performance. You also won't have to worry about replacing major parts because of limescale.

If you have an older boiler that's not acting right, you may want to hire a boiler repair contractor to take a look at this broken-down heating system. It won't take them long to find the problem and fix it to where you get great heating performance once again.
