When entering a new home, it is important to check the condition of the heating and water supply systems as it directly affects the comfort of living in the house and the safety of the residents. Even if all the systems and communications are new and do not require major restoration, verification will not be superfluous. No one is immune from unforeseen situations when new, it would seem heater fail, especially unpleasant when problems occur in the winter. Summer is the actual time to check the health with the help of a heating service expert. Preventive measures are designed to prevent the appearance of moisture spots and to eliminate the negative impact on the health of the owners in the winter period, which is possible with malfunctions of heater structures and water supply.
Proper heating service is mandatory if:
- Batteries in the room are cold or they heat unevenly in different rooms;
- The heater is noisy
- Coolant is leaking.
Differences in the heater service in a private house and in an apartment
Residents of apartment buildings with centralized heat supply are lucky as the repair is carried out by specialized utilities. The apartment owners, coordinating the time of work with the housing office, only eliminate the leak and replace radiators and communications.
Owners of private homes monitor the health of the systems themselves. They maintain batteries and pipes, heating boilers and pumps on their own. And the repair of the heating system of the house falls entirely on their shoulders.
Overhaul of the heating system
For this event, the best time is the warm season. So you can take the time to do the replacement of systems or their parts in stages. But breakdowns happen more often when you least expect them. Therefore, it is necessary to be prepared for the opportunity to take on the restoration of the incident immediately.
A thorough repair of heater in the apartment is necessary for:
- replacement of the heating circuit (pipes, batteries, heated floor, etc.);
- partial replacement of pipes;
- laying of a heat-insulated floor;
- installation of boilers, furnaces, heat pumps, etc .;
- full replacement of heating.
Carefully consider the problem of unbalancing heating. The help of professionals is needed if the system has been improperly designed, and the installed equipment does not meet the necessary standards.
In case you have the necessary set of tools and relevant skills, such as heater repair in a private house can be done independently. If you are not competent in the question, leave the replacement radiators to the plumbers. There are many models of batteries on the market, so replacing the old with the new is not a problem. However, the purchase of a new radiator is not necessary if it is possible to do the regular heating service in the house. The causes of faults can be very different: from the wrong selection of the device to leakage in it.
