A sudden failure of their boiler will frustrate anybody. Most people don’t understand what suddenly happened to their boiler. Surprised with the breakdown, they just speculate what may have gone wrong with the boiler, and they look for an experienced technician in boiler repair Vancouver.

The truth is, most of the times, your boiler gives you red flags when it is on the way to failure. If you identify those red flags, you can prevent the boiler failure. But, if you fail to do so, your boiler can shut down.

In this blog, we will discuss those red flag signals so that you can become able to identify the red flags and call an expert in boiler repair Vancouver before your boiler breaks down.

Pilot Light Failure

Oil and gas boilers fire up the burner with pilot lights. Without a source of flame, your boiler’s burner will not burn at all. Until you notice the flame is blue, you need not worry, but as you notice changes in the colour of flame, you should understand there is something wrong with the pilot light. If you immediately call an expert, then you can avoid the complete breakdown of your appliance.

Thermostat Malfunction

A malfunctioning thermostat may seem like a relatively small issue, but, it can have serious consequences for your boiler. A malfunctioning thermostat may not allow you to control your home’s heat properly. Problems in thermostat can make your home too hot or too cold. So, if you realize your room is unusually hot or cold, you should call an experienced technician in boiler repair Vancouver.

Circulator Pump Failure

The circulator pump in a boiler delivers hot water to the radiators as well as baseboard heaters in your home. Once your circulator pump ceases working, the boiler will not be able to get the hot water, it requires for it to function properly. If you notice leaks around joints and flanges and/or strange noises when your boiler is working, you should understand, that the circulator pump is on the way to out.

Sediment Buildup

Sediment buildup in your boiler heat exchanger and other areas can restrict water flow. Sediment buildup turns the water into steam, and your boiler starts producing strange noises. Ignoring these noises can result in the breakdown of your boiler.
