Are YOUR Coil's Damaged Or Leaking?
A very common wear and tear issue, especially with older boilers, is the hot water coil. The coil plays an essential role in ensuring your home or property gets the hot water it needs. This small, seemingly unimportant part can be found on the oil burner, it’s job is to transfer heat from the burner to the water.
As a result of performing this specific task, the coil can become clogged with soot, limescale and can also erode over time causing leaks. While soot and limescale can be removed through cleaning, a worn down, leaking coil will need to be replaced.
Clean Or Replace your Coils?
Depending on what is clogging up the coil, a maintenance professional could be required.
