When was the last time you checked your boiler?
As Alberta descends into winter every year, there’s absolutely nothing worst than a hot water heating system on the fritz. Most hot water heating system can be classified either as a tank (Please view this article to learn more about tanks) or a boiler and both require maintenance every few months to ensure they
remain in tip-top condition before bigger issues arise such as the heating system failing completely.
What are the tell-tale signs of a boiler requiring a check-up?
- Deterioration of chimney and vent (Is the connection between the vent and boiler unit in good condition?)
- Is there a leak in the heat exchanger?
- Has the circulating pump broken down? Has it been lubricated? Without it, there will be no hot water until it’s fixed or replaced
- Has the boiler been drained or flushed? (This is essential to ensure that the system remains rust-free and to prevent the build-up of debris that can affect the performance of your heating system)
