You’re probably already aware of the usual noises that your home makes. However, if you begin noticing noises coming from your boiler that aren’t the usual creaks and pops that your Dayton, NJ, home produces, you may have a serious problem on your hands. There can be several reasons for the strange noises coming from your boiler. Read on to learn more.
In the HVAC industry, the term kettling refers to air trapped within your system. If your boiler is whistling while it’s running, it most likely stems from kettling. A professional boiler repair service technician can not only release the air from the system but also identify why it happened.
Banging noises coming from your boiler may scare you, and they should for multiple reasons. Not only is the noise unexpected, but it may be a symptom of corrosion and debris built up inside the boiler. This debris can block the flow of water inside the system and may lead to the water expanding as it converts to steam and bursting of the pipes since it has nowhere to go.
Boilers aren’t supposed to have any air inside the system, as air can lead to corrosion. However, if there are leaks somewhere in your boiler’s pipes, air can get inside, which often leads to a gurgling noise. During extremely cold times, gurgling can also be a symptom of a leaky pipe somewhere in the system.
