7 top boiler maintenance tips

Today many owners and the engineers recommend a frequent checkup of the boilers to ensure the safety, efficacy and reliability of the equipment. These inspection should be done only by professional plumber. Here’s a checklist that can be followed to improve the efficiency:

1. Annual servicing and maintenance

Seeking out help from experts and skilled engineers is essential. The major components need to clean and accessible. Preferably servicing should be carried out in September so that it works smoothly in the winter.

2. Mitigating concerns and solving the problem areas

An erroneous radiator, a faulty valve, a visible leak and heating issues can lead to significant problems. These issues should be addressed head-on thus avoiding a bigger problem in the future.

3. Calibration of the radiators

The system needs to be balanced appropriately, and this can be done by checking on the heaters whether they’re heating and cooling times are optimum and equidistant.

4. Optimise boiler pressure

Always keep a check on the boiler pressure gauge so that the weight doesn’t drop and the scaling of the closed system is carried out with care. Alternatively, the water level should be checked in confluence every fortnight.

5. Check for ventilation

The ventilation requirements present in the training manual should be followed strictly to ensure complete accessibility and usage. The boiler shouldn’t be kept stuck to a wall, and an ample space or area should be left behind.

6. De-scaling and flushing

The air vents and pipes should be kept free from the limestone deposits due to hard water and the grime or dust if any should be washed out by flushing it out with water and the gaskets need to be refilled and replaced to ensure a clean interior. Routine lubrication is also a must.

7. Ask for professional help

Care and maintenance of the device only work when professional intervention occurs. Please make sure that the repairman is registered and carries proper identification proof along with the registration of the registered company documents.
