What Is Boiler Maintenance?

Learn About Boiler Maintenance

Boiler maintenance is up there in importance with boiler servicing. There are a lot of aspects of boiler maintenance which can decrease the risk of your boiler breaking or malfunctioning. The last thing you need on a winter evening after work is to find your boiler broken. Here are a few things which can help avoid this situation.

One of the biggest problems which cause your boiler to stop working in the winter months is frozen pipes. Simple boiler maintenance can decrease the risk of this. This includes:

  • Having any potential problem pipes replaced with wider pipes.
  • Move any potential problem pipes to somewhere less likely to freeze.
  • Install insulation around the pipe.

Boilers tend to seize up when they are not used for months. Therefore as part of overall boiler maintenance, we suggest that heating is turned on for 10 – 20 minutes every so often throughout the summer months to prevent this.

It is always a good idea to check your boiler pressure on a regular basis to ensure that it is running efficiently. Your boiler manual should have instructions on how to top this up if need be.

You may find that your boiler and heating system has air locked in it, there is no real boiler maintenance to prevent this. However, we suggest that you regularly check whether your radiators have any cold spots in them. If they do it is highly likely that there is air in your system somewhere. This can easily be resolved by bleeding your radiators.

As part of regular boiler maintenance, it is highly advised that an annual boiler service is completed by a qualified engineer. This will ensure that your boiler and its components are working correctly and to the best of their ability.

Super Service

My boiler broke down and with the current weather I wasn’t in a particular rush to get a new one. I had a quote from a number of companies and Energy care were a lot cheaper than other companies offering the same service.
