How to Maintain Your Home Heating Boiler

If you have a home heating boiler, it is important to maintain it properly. If boilers aren’t maintained, they can leak and lead to damage. The best way to maintain your boiler is to have a contract with a trusted fuel and boiler company, like Parkside Fuel and Burner Service. Even if your boiler is looked at often by a professional, there are still things you can do to check it and make sure there are no issues.

One thing you can do is examine the boiler’s smoke pipe leading to the chimney. If you see any cracks or holes, there is a possibility of a leak. It is a good idea to periodically check to make sure the controls on the boiler are at the correct levels. This ensures that the system is working efficiently and avoids wasting energy and money.

Depending on what type of heating system you have, there are a few different ways to maintain them. If you have a forced air system, check for cracks or holes is in the duct connections. If you find any, seal them off. For hot water systems, check the pressure tank to make sure it is filled with air and not water, and clean the surface of the boiler.
