Boiler Maintenance - What To Know

Regular boiler maintenance can help avert costly repairs, helping you save on overall costs. Maintenance is advised to avert accidents and boost household safety. This will also boost the efficiency of your boiler and extend its life span. But boiler maintenance can be confusing and difficult, so we are here to give you some guidance to keeping a well-maintained boiler. 

What is Boiler maintenance?

Boiler maintenance is a must if you hope to have your boiler efficient at all times. Boilers give a vital service in hot water supply and household warming. They add to the comfort level of the home. Too often, repairs become necessary when the boiler malfunctions.

How do you maintain a boiler?

Maintaining a boiler can be difficult and there are many different problems that can occur, so below we have given some insight into how to maintain a few different parts of a boiler:

Air Vents and Flues
Blocked air vents hamper the boiler from working efficiently. This particularly applies to gas boilers. Dirt can form in vents or flues and cause a blockage. To prevent this, it requires a regular inspection of vents and flues. If any blockage has occurred, clear it of any residue to allow free passage of air.

Water Level
It is vital that you check the boiler water level every fortnight or so. Should the boiler operate without water, this can easily damage it beyond repair and as a result can cause an accident that could endanger the lives of tenant in the property.

To avoid any problems be sure that the pilot light is on as you check the water level. If the water level is below minimum, you need to check the plumbing and correct any faults. Sometimes, all that is required is a few minor adjustments in the set-up.

These may occur during normal usage of the boiler. A gas or fuel may leak through the valves. This usually indicates some adjustments are necessary in the system. If you detect damaged or worn out parts, this calls for repair or replacement.
