Boiler Not Firing Up for Central Heating - 9 Common Reasons
In horizontal shell boilers, the water level rises with increasing load (due to the presence of more steam being below the water level in the boiler). As it does so, the water surface area (steam release area) will decrease because, as the water level is above the centre line of the boiler
