Learning About HVAC Contractor Services

Hello, my name is Winnie Slone. Welcome to my site about HVAC contractor services. The HVAC equipment in my home was in a serious state of disrepair after living there for several years. I was absolutely clueless about the maintenance schedule required for each of the components. As a result, all of the filters and ducts were clogged with dust and debris. My HVAC contractor helped restore the function of each of the components in the system. I want to share the information I learned throughout that process to help others avoid making the same mistakes. Please visit again soon to learn more.

Is Your Boiler Making Noise? Soundproof It

A home with a very noisy boiler can be a frustrating experience. Thankfully, there are some soundproofing techniques that can make your home peaceful once again.

Build A Cabinet Around Your Boiler

If your boiler is out in the open instead of in a closet, you can put the boiler inside a cabinet. There are some consideration you must make before doing so.

Any cabinet that is installed around your boiler will have to comply with your local safety regulations for ventilation and fire safety. This is especially true for a gas boiler. Gas boilers have a constant flame that will produce carbon monoxide. It has to be vented outside of your home so that it can mix with the outside air. An electric boiler's heating element doesn't produce any gas that needs proper ventilation.

Your biggest concern will be having enough space around the boiler so that it can be serviced. It is also a good idea to have the cabinet lined with material that is fire retardant. Consider using a material that is designed to dampen the sounds that the boiler is making, such as acoustic panels.

Also, be sure to check with the manufacture of the boiler for other instructions regarding how to enclose your specific boiler.

Properly Mount The Boiler

A boiler that has not been properly mounted will maker more noise than usual. Consider replacing the mounts with ones that isolate vibration. They can be purchased at your local home improvement store, and will make any noises the boiler makes from vibration much more tolerable.

Use Sound Reducing Add-ons

The bulk of the noise may not be coming from the boiler itself, but from the various pipes and joints that it is connected to. Fortunately, there are ways to reduce the noise with different add-ons for your boiler. For example, there are special hoses and pipe attachments that you can have installed that will not make as much noise when you compare it to a traditional copper pipe hose. An HVAC contractor can find the compatible hardware and do the switch for you, since there will be certain fittings for your boiler's specific make and model.

When the boiler is making excessive noise that does not seem like it can be contained by following these tips, it may be from a bigger problem that needs to be fixed. Contract a boiler repair specialist in your area to investigate the problem for you. The solution may be a simple repair that you did not even know you needed.
