Reduced Boiler Efficiency – The Reasons
There are many reasons why the efficiency of an oil-fired boiler could be reduced, which is why we’ve decided to outline a few of the main ones below. Some of the main reasons your oil boiler may be suffering problems with efficiency include:
- Excessive smoke and partially burnt fuel deposits can cause soot to form within the boiler heat exchanger, restricting the amount of heat that can be transferred into the heating system water. The cleaner the heat exchanger, the more efficient the boiler will be.
- Oil nozzles regulate how much oil passes through the burner; the nozzles are consumable items that wear over time, affecting combustion and lowering boiler efficiency. If they aren’t replaced, they could cause ‘sooting up’ of the heat exchange due to too much fuel passing through the burner.
- Electrodes can wear and attract soot and deposit. Electrodes produce a spark to light the fuel, if they are worn or in poor condition the boiler may not light. Again, causing inconvenience, inefficiency and increasing fuel cost.
- Photocells can glaze over with deposits. Photocells are an important safety feature which detect whether the boiler has lit. If a photocell is dirty, it may not be able to detect the burner flame correctly and could cause the boiler to shut down randomly. Boilers frequently switching on and off will be less efficient than those running for longer periods.
The Symptoms and Dangers Of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
As with any fuel burning appliance, poor or inadequate servicing can generate carbon monoxide. Therefore, it’s absolutely vital that your oil boiler is serviced (at least) annually. This is why we offer our oil boiler servicing services to clients throughout Fordingbridge and the surrounding areas.
Carbon monoxide is a highly toxic poisonous gas; it is odourless, colourless and tasteless and therefore difficult to detect. Some symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include:
