HVAC Questions? Ask an HVAC Expert for Answers ASAP
Good evening, and welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer, an independent paid question and answer platform that matches customers' questions to experts in various skills. My name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you today.My first thought, at the beginning of your explanation, is also my last thought - I reckon its pump vibration.If you have communal heating from a (big) boiler, then it's quite likely that the pump is a separate unit. Replacing the boiler doesn't mean that the pump was replaced.Corrosion debris can get lodged in a pump impeller, and in a small domestic pump this can cause a small amount of vibration. With a large semi-industrial pump, the vibration will be proportionately bigger.That's what I would get checked out first._____There's no time pressure on this topic - it will stay open to you for many days, and you can reply at any time. I will be away from my desk sometimes, but will respond as soon as I can.
Hi Jennifer, I completely understand. There's absolutely no need to leave a tip - my grandmother taught me that "charity begins at home" :-)
Hi Jennifer :-)Excuse my brevity just now as I'm about to go to an appointment.The boiler man seems incredibly unhelpful.Have you considered booking a visit from an independent heating engineer, to investigate the noise? I realise that they might not be allowed access to all parts of the building, but if you mention Environmental Health to the building manager then you might be able to compromise over someone getting access to investigate.
Hi JenniferWF isn't very far from me, so I'd be happy to visit on a "no fix no fee" basis, just to see what would be involved in investigating further. Let me know if that would be helpful.
