If your home or business has a boiler-based heating system, you won’t believe the difference a boiler cleaning can make!
How can you tell it’s time to have your residential, commercial or industrial boilers cleaned?
- It’s been longer than 2 years since your last boiler cleaning
- You notice the boiler is running more often than normal
- You have to constantly turn up your hot water heat thermostat because it’s not holding temperature comfortably
Over time, any system with a gas flame—like boilers—can get what we call “carboned up,” leaving it prone to a dangerous flame rollout.
If you see flames rolling or coming out the front of your boiler, you need to have your system cleaned as soon as possible, then inspected by your plumber.
Clean boilers not only run more efficiently (and save you energy costs), but also prolong the life of their system!
As with any gas appliance, we recommend having a carbon monoxide detector nearby and changing the batteries regularly.
DID YOU KNOW?
Most boilers don’t actually boil water! A boiler is a radiant heat system that distributes hot water through tubes or pipes throughout your house. As the hot water moves, it releases heat to the surrounding areas, then gets sent back to the boiler to repeat the process.
What we clean
When we stop by for your boiler cleaning, we’ll clean up the heat exchanger, burner tubes and the exhaust flue before we go.
