A boiler that won’t turn off can be a nuisance. After all, you don’t want your boiler to run all day. If your boiler is running without stopping, not only can your home end up becoming too warm. You could also end up spending a lot of money on energy bills. Here are three potential reasons your boiler in North Canton, OH, won’t shut off:
Issue With the Wiring
From the pieces that control the shut-off temperature to issues with electrical signals and more, your boiler’s wiring could be causing your issue. When you call a professional, they’ll disconnect your boiler from its power supply and make sure all the wiring and fuses belonging to it are in order.
As a precaution, it’s advisable to alert your manufacturer about the issue before you do anything. If you try to repair it before informing them of the problem, the manufacturer may invalidate your warranty.
A faulty thermostat could make your boiler fail to turn off. Your HVAC service technician may want to check whether there’s a loose wire, damaged fuse or battery issue. If your thermostat is old, it might be a good idea to invest in a newer model, as advances in technology have allowed for more accurate thermostats among other benefits.
There could be a problem with your boiler’s programming. For example, the commands it’s sending the system might be overriding your thermostat’s signals. A detailed inspection by a boiler expert may be necessary to establish whether there’s a problem with the programming.
Some of the checks may include inspecting communication between the boiler and the thermostat. They may also want to see whether there are loose wires or a damaged fuse.
