What to do when your boiler sounds like a boiling kettle
The sound of a kettle boiling is something that we are all used to, but do you remember the noise that an old fashion kettle on a stove makes? Most of us can recall the whistling sound that it makes. There are some cases where a very similar noise can be found coming from your heating system and in particular your boiler. Boilers naturally make some noises as the flame ignites and the system bursts into life and it is also common to hear some low grade gurgling from your radiators as the water flows through them. However, if you hear loud banging or noises that are reminiscent of a boiler kettle you might want to consider calling a Boiler Repair Gloucester company to come and check that all is well with your heating system.
The noises are usually caused by either a process known as kettling which is where your limescale, corrosion or other debris has caused areas of your system to have to work harder when heating your water. This can result in the tell tale noise of kettle boiling. Water flow becomes restricted due to the corrosion or build up of limescale and the trapped water heats up too much and turns into steam which then expands. A heating engineer will be able to find out where the issue is within the system and clean and replace any parts as may be necessary.
