Why Poor Boiler Installation Leads to Problems

A new boiler represents a significant investment in your home, and if properly installed, it can be a great boon to your household. That’s a big if, however, especially if you choose an installation service that isn’t up to snuff. Here in Bethesda, boilers are a staple of many homes, but bad installation services are distressingly common despite the common use of such systems. Here’s a brief list of why poor boiler installation leads to problems.

  • Gas leaks: Perhaps the most overtly dangerous is an increased risk of gas leaks. Gas is often used to heat the water in boilers, and it requires proper connections in order to enter the boiler safety. A poor installation may create a leak or a fissure in the lines. A gas leak is obviously a dangerous situation that should be avoided at all costs.
  • Water leaks: Water leaks aren’t as devastating as gas leaks can be, but they can still create significant problems in the performance of your boiler. Small leaks will eat into your boiler’s performance, creating inefficiency and leading to larger monthly bills. They can also grow larger as time goes on, resulting in insufficient pressure to help the boiler function the way it needs to. Not to mention the potential water damage to your home.
  • Poor circulation: Boilers depend on being able to circulate heated water through the pipes in the system in order to function. If poor installation affects the layout of the pipes or the functioning of the pump, that circulation simply won’t happen the way it should. The boiler will have to work harder to warm your home and in the worst cases may fail to function at all.
