Common issues that occur during the installation of boiler piping include improper water circulation, loose connections and poor copper soldering. Piping and systems that have been improperly serviced may be at increased risk of gas leakage.
Issues installing or maintaining boiler piping are typically caused by amateur contractors or inexperienced homeowners. Boiler piping that has been improperly installed may not provide a secure connection to the main tank. Bad pipe work can lead to improper heating and a loss of energy.
Installation and maintenance of a natural gas boiler should only be performed by a licensed professional. Poorly connected gas lines can lead to dangerous carbon monoxide leaks.
