The Importance of Boiler Maintenance
Are you experiencing cooler than normal air, a lack of hot water, or unusual noises coming from your boiler? These are all common signs that your boiler is not working properly and that you should have it checked as soon as possible. While boilers are reliable, problems are inevitable if you neglect making regular boiler maintenance a part of your annual home upkeep.
If your heating system exhibits strange noises, such as gurgling, banging or whistling, or you notice any water drips or leaks from your heating equipment, you should make arrangements for a heating professional to take a look. Ignoring the problem may only make it worse.
Boiler service should include cleaning the heat exchanger and identifying and remediating any corrosion. Sediment accumulation or rust can significantly affect the efficiency of the boiler and shorten its lifespan. A knowledgeable boiler technician will be able to spot subtle problems and fix them even if you never noticed them at all. With thorough care, your boiler heating system will serve you for many years to come.
Here are several of the things you should expect to be part of the boiler inspection and maintenance:
- Inspect for boiler leaks
- Inspect for heat exchanger corrosion or leaks
- Clean the heat exchanger
- Confirm pump operation
- Confirm valve operation
- Test pressure relief
- Check all safety devices
- Confirm pressure and temperature readings
- Vent inspection
- Anaylsis of the boiler’s combustion
- Check that the pilot or electronic ignition is functioning properly
- Confirm the flow through each zone
- Check for sediment and scale accumulation
