I am generally a smart and handy person when it comes to little fixtures around my home.
I rarely call in any servicemen for assistance, especially if I can get a manual and follow the concernshooting and fixing procedures, however, in some complex cases where professional assistance or know-how is required, I leave the tasks to the experts, so this one time, I observed that my boiler was rapidly behaving strangely. It kept going on and off, however while I knew that the thermostat setting allowed it to have an on-off cycle, it was not supposed to happen as it did, then the heating cycle was to take a few hours until optimum temperatures were attained before it turned off for a while, then but this was not what my boiler was doing. It was going on and off within seconds, and no amount of resetting seemed to resolve this issue. I knew that this short cycling was an indication that something extreme was off. I talked to my Heating, Ventilation, and A/C worker, and he suspected an issue with airflow. Since not enough air was getting out of the boiler, it was overheating and switched off before the optimum temperatures were attained. With the guidance of the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professional, I changed the filters to allow better airflow. I went for better quality flyers as proposed by the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C company experts at my local store, and fortunately, this seemed to work. It turns out that the filter that was in my boiler before would feel up too rapidly, causing restricted airflow. In case this had failed, then my wonderful friend and I would have hired an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C corporation to fix the issue.
