Because your gas boiler is not usually in the main part of a home or building, it can be easily overlooked. However, you can check for certain signs to see if it is working the way it should.
Signs your boiler needs repairs:
- Emitting strange smells – Is your boiler releasing foul or unfamiliar smells? If you smell sulfur or something akin to rotten eggs, it can indicate a gas leak. Such issues are extremely dangerous and should be addressed immediately.
- Delay in heat – In a normally functioning gas boiler, you should be able to feel warmth shortly after turning the unit on. If you do not, it can signify issues with the circulation.
- Water leaks – Check your boiler to see if there is water pooling around it. Such water leaks not only effect the boiler’s functionality but it can also increase your utility bill and pose a safety hazard.
- Strange noises – While leaks and smells may be more difficult to notice, strange noises are not. Sounds such as clanking, thumping, whirring, and more, can allude to a broken heater pumped, blocked system, or other serious issues.
