Does your home receive its heat through air blowing out a vent, or does it come via hot water being pumped through pipes? If you answered the latter, you won’t believe the difference a boiler cleaning can make!
Over time, any system that has a gas flame 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, it is imperative to have your system cleaned as soon as possible, then inspected by your plumber.
Residential, commercial and industrial boilers alike should be cleaned every 2 to 3 years. You’ll know it’s time if your boiler is running more often than normal, or if you have to constantly turn up your hot water heat thermostat because it’s not holding temperature comfortably. 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.
