Boiler FAQ: What Does Boiler Maintenance Involve?

If you ask any home heating professional what the most important action you can take to preserve the integrity of your boiler is, they will likely say scheduling regular boiler maintenance. When it comes to getting the best, most efficient and reliable performance from your boiler there is just no substitute for high-quality maintenance service. Many homeowners in Naperville still fail to schedule routine maintenance. We at DuAll Heating & Cooling want to try and change that. Here is some information about what boiler maintenance actually involves. We hope that you are convinced of its importance.

When you schedule professional boiler maintenance in Naperville, your entire home heating system is evaluated, tuned up and, if necessary, repaired. A thorough visual inspection will be completed. All joint fittings and connections will be checked for signs of leaks. All gaskets on the doors will be replaced as necessary.

The front and rear doors of your furnace will be opened and surfaces will be cleaned when needed. The doors will then be sealed and closed. Water cut off controls will be removed, inspected and replaced as needed. Your boiler will be flushed to remove any sediment and buildup within the boiler.

Your burner will be inspected and cleaned, and you pilot electrode will be adjusted or, if necessary replaced. The motor, its contacts and moving parts will also be inspected, cleaned and repaired if needed. A number of safety checks will be performed and the results recorded.

As you can probably tell, boiler maintenance is not a job that can be successfully completed by anyone other than a qualified professional. There are simply too many tasks that must be completed to ensure the safe, efficient and effective operation of your boiler. From the lubrication of all moving parts to the cleaning of the system and everything in between, your boiler maintenance needs the expertise that only a professional can provide.
