The Two Major Types Of Gas Boilers
These are also known as a standard boiler. A standard boiler consists of a heat exchanger and burners. The heat exchanger in a conventional boiler will likely be made of cast iron and will typically vent into a chimney with metal vent piping. Although a conventional gas boiler isn't very efficient (80% at best), it does offer the advantages of simplicity and longevity of service life.
High efficiency boilers typically operate at over 95% efficiency, giving them a large advantage over the traditional boiler system. They have much smaller heat exchangers, typically made of stainless steel or aluminum. In addition, a high efficiency boiler is much smaller and lighter than other boilers and can often be hung on the wall and vented with PVC pipe outside. These technologically advanced boilers allow for many piping, heating, and domestic hot water applications, which require many more controls.
Signs Your Hydronic System or Boiler May Need Repair
A common sign that you are facing a broken boiler emergency is strange noises coming from the system. In boilers, this could be banging pipes, gurgling or even sloshing water through the system. If you notice your boiler making unknown noises, call to book boiler service today.
When your heat is out and you have a boiler, it's time to get service scheduled quickly. Sometimes when a home has hydronic heat, only part of the boiler system isn't working. This could be a control, boiler pump or zone valve issue. To diagnose a complete or partial no heat situation on your home's boiler system, call Austin Plumbing Heating & Air today.
Water is the key source of transferring heat to your home in a boiler or hydronic heating system. If you see water leaking from the boiler, piping, valves, pumps or any other part of the heating system, it's best to get on the schedule for a boiler repair as soon as possible. Small boiler leaks can develop into large boiler leaks if left unrepaired.
If you have an older home with a boiler and hydronic heat, you should contact a trusted HVAC repair company to help inspect, service or repair your boiler, or to help you find an affordable boiler system replacement.
