How to Know When Your Steam Boiler System Needs Repair
Steam boiler systems are known for being long-lasting. In fact, the average steam boiler can last 30 years or more. If your home or business has a very old system, we can work with you to replace parts of the existing system.
Steam boilers are more temperamental to deal with than hot water boilers. They rely on air pressure, which must be constantly regulated for heat to flow properly. If there are any problems with the heating element, the water will not reach the temperature to create steam and heat won’t reach your rooms.
When you call Wilson Plumbing & Heating for Akron hot water boiler repair or maintenance, you can expect us to perform the following services:
- Inspect water levels and fuel supply
- Make sure exhaust is exiting properly
- Calibrate equipment to correct levels
- Flush system of mineral deposits
- Fix any faulty valves
Information on Older Systems
Older steam boiler systems typically feature one-pipe construction, because they were easier and less expensive to make. A one-pipe system can provide sufficient heat for relatively small spaces. But if you have added on to your home or structure, your system may not be producing enough steam to heat the new additions, and your system may need repair or additional pipes for sufficient heat.
A steam boiler system is dependent upon a series of air valves and vents. If any of the valves lose operation, or any of the vents become blocked, heat won’t reach your rooms. Our technicians can adjust the steam flow rate so that all radiators produce the right amount of heat for each room.
Your system is equipped with safety measures that shut the fuel supply down if pressure is too high or if the water level is too low. If your system consistently fails due to improper levels, our technicians can restore your system to working order.
