Problems that May Occur with a Commercial Boiler

Commercial boilers are powerful heating systems, with the ability to keep an entire office building warm no matter what the outdoor temperature. Boilers are built tough because they often handle a large heating load. Even though these units are meant to last for many years, there’s always a chance that a problem can surface with any electro-mechanical system. When you notice any of the following problems with your commercial boiler, it’s important to call for commercial HVAC repair in Wynnewood as soon as possible.

  • Little Heating: If you’re not getting the heating power you desire from your commercial boiler, it can mean a major problem, or the repair may be as simple as cleaning off a few parts. Dirty burners can cause limited heating, but so can a major repair need like a leak or an imbalance in pressure. Even if the lack of heat seems bearable, you should call an expert for service as soon as possible to keep the issue from worsening.
  • Uneven Heating in One Area: If there is not enough heating in one office, a single floor, or any particular area of the building, it’s likely a problem with the zone control system. A technician should adjust the settings of any zone according to that floor’s particular needs, but sometimes the structure of the room requires higher or lower settings for whatever reason. If, for example, an office on the second floor has carpeting, while other areas have tile or hardwood floors, the settings may need to be adjusted so that more heat moves into that room only.
  • Leaks: This problem is rare, but it’s definitely one to look out for. If you notice water leaks from your boiler, it indicates a pretty serious problem that should be addressed immediately. This could have to do with the expansion tank, the pressure relief valve, or it could be a sign of rust and corrosion, an unfortunate possibility with older boilers that almost always results in replacement.
