Noisy Boiler

Posted on October 3, 2012 · Posted in Boiler Service

Are you concerned by the loud banging noises that seem to be coming from your boiler? A noisy boiler can be scary, especially if you are alone in your house in the evening. Furthermore, they are a nuisance and very distracting if you are trying to get a job done. Many people believe that the clanging noises mean that their boiler needs to be replaced, and they spend thousands buying and installing a new one. However, in most cases there is no need to part with such a large sum of money. Gas Boilers Servicing is pleased to announce that we offer a service called power flushing that can help solve this problem cheaply and allow you to continue using your current boiler for many years to come.

The noise your boiler makes is known technically as ‘kettling’. This occurs when your heating system has become coated with mineral deposits, including sludge, limescale and iron oxide. These deposits often build up most quickly in areas which have hard water. This is because in these areas the water naturally has high levels of calcium and magnesium salts which leads to the formation of limescale. These deposits build up on the insides of the copper pipe, obstructing the flow of water and even causing valve or pump jams to occur. The problem is in fact far worse than just a noisy boiler as the whole efficiency of your system is being compromised. Gas Boilers Servicing strongly recommend that you deal with this problem sooner rather than later. If ignored this issue will only get worse and if you wait too long you may even have to replace the entire system!

Gas Boilers Servicing operates in London, Greater London, Hertfordshire, Middlesex and Surrey. We offer a large range of other services, including gas safety certificates and carbon monoxide alarms.  Noisy boilers are a common problem; however, this does not mean that you have to accept it. So, if you are troubled by a noisy boiler then why not give Gas Boilers Servicing a call today and one of our obliging team members will be more than happy to give you a free quotation.
