Flushing a Weil McLain Steam Heat Boiler
During the winter months, my steam heat boiler (Weil McClain) makes very loud banging noises. I know next-to-nothing about boilers (except to take a bucket of water off of them once every few weeks during the heating season).
Is it safe to have this boiler flushed during the summer...not during the heating season?
Does "flushing" the boiler hurt the system in any way?
Will I expect after-effects of the flushing during the heating season?
I understand that flushing the system involves putting something into the radiators that travels through the system. Does this cause smells in the evaporating steam from the boilers during the heating system? I have asthmatics in the house. Any responses are greatly appreciated!
