common boiler problems

Toronto and the GTA can be a funny place to live when winter comes around. Some days can feel quite comfortable while others can plunge the city into a deep freeze overnight. Those colder days might have us looking to stay in and away from the cold, so it’s important to know a bit more about a common boiler problem – kettling. 

You Can Fix Some Common Boiler Problems Yourself, But Not This One

Tackling certain issues around the house yourself is a great way to save a few bucks. Unfortunately, not every job is a do-it-yourself one though. 

Kettling, for example, is best left to the professionals. It’s often easy to recognize but more complex to fix. You’ll know it’s kettling for sure when you hear loud clanking and banging sounds coming from your boiler. This is one of the most common boiler problems you can expect to encounter.

The best way to think of it is like a kettle on a stove. When water heats up and pressure builds, it needs to let off steam – and the same goes for your boiler. The only trouble is, lime scale build-up can prevent water from flowing freely to the heat exchanger, making your boiler work harder. This can be addressed by a boiler maintenance expert, who will give you a few options on how to move forward.
