Whether you count on your boiler for heat, hot water, or both, it’s time to think about scheduling an annual service visit to ensure its safe, efficient operation. Here are a few reasons why boiler tune-ups are essential for homeowners and businesses in Goshen and north-central Indiana.
Maintenance Requirements for High-Efficiency Boilers
Modern boilers have efficiency ratings in the mid to upper 90s, but without recommended maintenance, they may not perform at peak levels. To avoid lockouts and efficiency losses, it’s important to have your heating system serviced by a professional HVAC technician at least once per year or at startup. Discover some of the advantages.
- Fewer breakdowns
- Enhanced efficiency
- Reduced safety concerns
- Decreased carbon monoxide buildup
- Less risk of water leaks and damage
- Protection from corrosive byproducts
- Extended equipment life
- Increased peace of mind
What to Expect During Boiler Tune-ups
At Rex’s Heating and Cooling, our professional HVAC technicians have advanced training specific to steam and hot water boilers, and we put our experience to work for you. Here’s what you can expect during a boiler tune-up.
- On the fire side of the system, our professionals will clean and adjust the burners and clear the intake and exhaust lines to ensure complete combustion.
- On the water side of your boiler, we’ll test the low-water cutoff switch and inspect the pipes to ensure that water and pressure levels stay at optimal levels.
- High-efficiency boilers can produce corrosive byproducts, so your technician may check the system’s pH levels and flush the condensate line to prevent equipment damage.
- Draining the system and cleaning the heat exchanger can boost efficiency levels by removing sludge and sediment. We can help you determine if water treatment is necessary.
- If the system has difficulty firing, we can replace the ignition switch or flame rod. We can also install new gaskets to prevent air or water leaks.
