One of the most common problems is the lack of hot water and heating. There can be many reasons - from pump failure, through damage to the three-way valve, to problems with the burner. Regular servicing of the boiler and checking the condition of individual components can significantly reduce the risk of this type of failure.
Water leakage is another common failure. It is usually the result of damaged seals or corrosion of pipes. Regular inspection of the installation's tightness and replacement of damaged elements allows you to avoid this problem. It is also recommended to use the correct water quality in the system to minimize the risk of corrosion.
Boilers are exposed to scaling and other impurities, which can lead to a decrease in the efficiency of the device. Regular cleaning and servicing of the boiler and the use of special anti-corrosion agents can help keep the boiler in good condition.
Ignition problems are a common cause of gas boiler failures. They can be caused, for example, by damage to the ignition electrodes, lack of fuel or incorrect adjustment. It is important to regularly check the condition of the electrodes and, if necessary, replace them, and to ensure constant access to fuel.
The boiler controller is its "brain" - it is responsible for the proper functioning of the entire system. Failure of the controller may paralyze the operation of the boiler. Regular software updates and servicing of control devices are crucial to avoid these types of problems.
The most important element of prophylaxis is the regular service of the boiler, carried out by a qualified specialist. Such a service should include, among others: inspection of the technical condition of the device, cleaning and replacement of worn parts. In addition, proper operation of the boiler, in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, is fundamental. It is also worth paying attention to the quality of the fuel - low-quality fuel can lead to contamination and damage. It is also recommended to regularly check the condition of the installation and its tightness.
