It’s first important to note that all boiler repairs have to be done by trained professionals. Do not try to do a boiler repair on your own if you lack the necessary certification and training.
When your boiler starts to leak, this is actually considered to be a very serious issue. There are times when this means that an internal component is no longer working. This might be a valve or a seal. In more serious instances, however, a leak can ultimately lead to interior corrosion and rust. As a result, electrical parts within the unit can begin to short circuit. We’ve even seen cases in which a boiler leak has resulted in serious structural damages to the building itself. As such, whenever you identify a boiler leak, make sure to address the problem right way by calling Skylands Energy.

Common Causes Of A Leaking Boiler
Identifying the underlying cause of a leaking boiler can sometimes be a challenge. You have to know the actual source of the leak. Some boilers leak from the interior and others leak from their bottoms. Following are a few common causes of boiler leaks.
The Pressure Valve
When a boiler leaks from the pressure valve this often means that there’s too much pressure in the system. The pressure of a boiler should fall between 18 PSI and 21 PSI. If boiler pressure ever rises above this level, water will start to leak from the relief valve in order to keep the boiler from blowing up. Sediments like limescale can create a build-up of pressure within boilers also. Once you’ve removed any obstructions that exist, the valves are going to have to be replaced as well.
The Temperature Valve
If the water temperature within the boiler ever becomes too high, the temperature valve can start leaking water. This could mean that the temperature probe in your boiler is having problems.
Boilers often leak as the result of rusting or corrosion. The elements that are rusted or corroded within the boiler are the underlying cause of these leaks.
If a corroded element is causing a boiler to leak, this part will need to be replaced. If both the tank and various elements are corroded, the boiler will have to be replaced altogether. In these cases, the rust and corrosion have progressed past the point of repairs.
Problems With Pipe Fittings
In gas boilers, water can start to leak at or around the pipe fittings. This could mean that the boiler was never properly installed, to begin with.
A Faulty Boiler Pump
A leak that starts around the seals of the boiler pump means that the pump needs to be either replaced or resealed in order to resolve the issue.
