Same-Day Boiler Circulation Pump Replacement Service – Call for Circulator Repair
Is the boiler circulator pump in your Long Island home buzzing? Is it hot to the touch or leaking water? Is it making a terrible noise? These are all signs it needs replacing and a good reason to call us up. We will take you through the who, what, where, why and how regarding this vital piece of equipment and the trouble shooting issues to be aware of.
What Is A Boiler Circulator Pump?
The purpose of this pump is to to take hot water from your boiler and transfer it it on to your radiators and convection heaters. As the rather rather self explanatory name suggests, it pumps and circulates water around your property, a function essential to keeping your residence warm. Should the pump cease to function, the process of heating your home will also cease.
So what can cause the pump to break or to malfunction?
1. The Boiler Is Hot But The Radiators Are Cold And No Hot Water Is Coming Out Of The Faucets.
The above mentioned scenario is a clear sign something is wrong with the circular pump. It could be that valves are damaged, in which case a replacement will be necessary. It could also be the case that the cold/hot water pressure needs to be reset to stop it over burdening the pump.
2. Boiler Circulator Pump Making Noise
If the pump is making a lot of noise it may be down to excess air trapped in the pump which can be remedied using a bleeder valve. Another possibility is loose bearings, shake the pump to hear if the bearings are rattling around inside.
3. Water Leaking From Boiler Circulating Pump
If you notice pools of water situated underneath the circular pump, this means the water pressure has loosened the flanges or joins. Excessive pressure may have ruptured the pump leaving holes where the water can leak. Caulking can work as a temporary fix but eventually the pump will need to be replaced.
