My acquaintance Jenny ended up with an overpressurized boiler at 1 point over the winter.
When she first told me about it, it legitimately scared me.
I have constantly been a little bit scared of boilers anyway, but I had never heard of 1 legitimately becoming overpressurized before. When I told Jenny how upset I was about it, she just laughed it off! Jenny said that once in a while, boilers tend to become overpressurized. She has had a boiler plan as her heating plan in her house ever since she was a kid, so it does not legitimately faze her at all.She knows that I am upset about boilers, though, so anytime I go over to her house she pokes fun at me a little bit & talks about the boiler exploding. I think that she is just doing it all in great fun, but I cannot shake the idea that her house might blow up 1 day because of it. During the Winter this past year, her boiler was overpressurized again & the measures that she usually takes to repair it were not toiling, then usually, she just goes down to the oil furnace room in the basement & fixes the boiler herself. This time, she could not get the pressure to subside & so she stopped messing around with it. Instead, she went upstairs & called the local heating & cooling business to have them come out & repair the boiler for her. I thought that was a legitimately great transport on her part! If it were me, I would never try to repair it myself at all. I would constantly call the Heating & Air Conditioning business first.
