Boiler Maintenance

Boiler Maintenance Service in Muncie, Indiana

Many individuals assume boiler maintenance and a boiler tune-up accomplish the same things. However, these tasks differ in several ways. A failure to maintain the unit while having it tuned up or vice versa could lead to the early breakdown of the boiler. What is involved in a maintenance visit, and why should a licensed technician complete this work? 

Summers Plumbing Heating and Cooling offers residential boiler service, including maintenance and tune-ups. Regardless of what a customer needs for their HVAC system, our technicians can help. We have been serving customers in the area for over 40 years and will happily do the same for you.

Maintenance Visits

When a technician visits the home to perform this maintenance, they check and clean all components of the unit to ensure the boiler operates properly. They inspect the burners, pilot, and castings as part of the service, along with the safeties and wire connections. 

The boiler technician checks the PSI and makes adjustments as needed. The expansion tank and drain undergo an inspection, and the contractor checks the pump condition and amperage. If the unit requires oil, they add it. They finish up by inspecting the valves and dampers before testing the thermostat. 

Our technicians may carry out other tasks based on what they find when performing this maintenance. If they find any problems, they will alert the owner. The owner can then have the repairs completed to know their boiler is operating efficiently and safely. 

The Benefits of Residential Boiler Maintenance 

Maintenance helps ensure the efficiency of the system. When one or more internal components of the boiler don’t work together as intended, the system won’t operate at peak efficiency. Maintaining the boiler helps keep heating bills in check. A dirty system can interfere with proper airflow, so the cleaning tasks taken on by the HVAC technician are critical. Any dirt or debris buildup in the system means the boiler must work harder. This can reduce the lifespan of the unit. 

Furthermore, cleaning the unit reduces the risk of costly repairs. A person gets more from their investment when they make boiler maintenance tasks a priority. 

Manufacturers often require owners to have their boilers professionally maintained at least once a year. Failing to follow through on this requirement could lead to the manufacturer voiding the warranty on the unit. Don’t allow this to happen. Contact us today to set up a boiler service. 

Finally, if a homeowner doesn’t maintain the boiler properly, it could put the family at risk. As the technician inspects the unit while conducting this maintenance, they find any potential problems early.  When the boiler doesn’t vent carbon monoxide properly, everyone in the home is at risk. This invisible gas can make people ill and even lead to death. Regular maintenance of the unit reduces the risk of this happening. 

Why is Boiler Maintenance of Great Importance?

The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors wished to know what led to most boiler incidents. They conducted a study to find the answer to this question.  They learned that poor maintenance practices brought about many of these incidents. Some incidents led to bodily injuries and building damage. Nobody wants this to happen. 

Regular maintenance ensures the system is reliable, efficient, and safe. Homeowners should carry out certain maintenance tasks between visits from a licensed technician. The following is a partial list of these tasks:

  • Ensure the boiler and the surrounding area remain clean and free of debris
  • Check the burner and boiler control covers to make certain they are in place
  • Inspect the unit for leaks and have them repaired promptly

Talk with the maintenance technician to see if they have other recommendations. As they have inspected the system, they know what the system needs and share this information with the homeowner. In addition, they help the customer determine when to schedule the next boiler tune-up.
