Should I perform annual maintenance on our heating boiler?


When should I have my Boiler system serviced?

If you want peace of mind that you’ll be warm and cozy all winter long, we recommend annual Boiler tune-ups. The best time of year to schedule Boiler maintenance is in the fall or early winter before you need to turn on your Boiler. You may not be able to prevent heating system breakdowns completely, but you can help avoid them, save money, and maintain your manufacturer’s warranty with professional maintenance from High Performance Heating & Cooling.

Being without heat during the winter can be a miserable experience, especially when you have to wait for service because everyone else in town is having the same problem.

Early, regular maintenance provides dependable comfort and warmth to families:

Reduce Repairs. Up to 70% of Boiler repairs can be prevented with proper annual maintenance. Neglecting to perform regular maintenance can lead to costly repairs, breakdowns, and other unexpected malfunctions. ...

Annual Boiler Tune-Ups throughout Southeast Wisconsin

Some Wisconsin homeowners don’t realize how important it is to have their home’s boiler system inspected and tuned up annually, but it's crucial to do so to keep your unit functioning at peak performance.

The truth is that boilers lose efficiency as they age. Without regular maintenance appointments, they can end up costing you more on utility bills and eventually cease to work at all. Annual tune-ups can also catch developing problems early on to save you the cost of a boiler repair or replacement.

Capital Heating & Cooling works on all types of boilers, offers multiple Annual Maintenance Plans, and stands behind all our work with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Contact our HVAC system maintenance experts to schedule a complete boiler tune up in Milwaukee, Waukesha, or Racine county today.

Our Boiler Repair & Maintenance Services

Having annual maintenance performed at the start of the heating season is one of the most important things you can do for your boiler—especially as your system starts to get older. Steam heating systems like boilers can be the most durable and reliable heating systems around, but only if you have them routinely maintained.

You should regularly check the safety valve, the pressure level gauge, and the water level gauge, but for safety reasons, other boiler maintenance services should be left to the professionals....

If you use a boiler to heat your home, chances are you haven’t given it much thought since last year. But with fall arriving and winter not far behind, it’s time to consider fall boiler maintenance and make sure your heating system is up to the task of keeping your house warm during the cold weather ahead.

Inspect Your Boiler Before You Run It

Before you turn on your boiler for the first time this fall, give it a quick inspection. Use a flashlight if necessary, and look for water leaks, cracks and other damage. If you don’t see any issues, you can fire up the boiler to see how it runs. Watch the operation of the boiler to see if any water leaks out or steam escapes. If you see any issues, shut the boiler down and contact a technician.

Check Boiler Pressure

Most boilers have a pressure gauge that you should check when you run it for the first time of the season. The ideal pressure is different for every boiler, so have your owner’s manual handy so you...

Inspection of the boiler should begin with providing the service technician with boiler documentation, i.e. the warranty card and previous protocols. If you have noticed a disturbing change or irregularities in the operation of the boiler during the heating season – inform the service technician.

The main activity performed during inspection of the gas boiler is cleaning the water filters and the gas filter. If the boiler is not producing hot water of the desired parameters – the culprit is usually the filter at the cold water supply. A clogged gas filter, on the other hand, can be the cause of inefficient operation of the device. The heat exchanger requires most attention – its condition is reflected in the efficiency of the device. During operation, the exchanger is in contact with hot exhaust gases and acidic condensate; sediment, sintered fuel...

Unlike conventional systems, combi boilers do not store domestic hot water. They heat water from the cold water directly even as you use them. With the new combi boilers, you do not have a hot water cylinder, loft tank, or pipework. Combis are like standard unvented boilers but they have a second heating circuit, which is what gives you instant hot water when you need it. If fed directly from the main water supply to the heat exchanger, the combi boiler can have an unlimited hot water supply as long as the boiler is firing. Combi units manage to extract a larger amount of heat from the flue gases that escape from the flue system, which increases the combi’s...

Boilers and radiators are not often installed in new homes, but many older residences still feature this type of heating system. Furthermore, because this type of heating works well in multi-residence situations and larger buildings, steam heating and hot-water heating are still common in many apartment buildings, multi-family dwellings, and older business buildings.

Steam Heating Systems: Pros

Steam and hot-water heating systems have several benefits that aren’t often discussed. They have few moving parts, making them more reliable and durable if maintained than newer, more complicated heating systems. They also provide clean and dust-free heat, a huge plus for homeowners who react negatively to the dust and other allergens that can be stirred up by forced air and other modern heating systems.

Finally, they fit the bill when it comes to staying true to older structures and historic homes, making it easy to see why some homeowners choose to overlook,...

Heating boiler antifreeze procedure:

This article describes how to add anti-freeze to a heating boiler and to the hot water or hydronic heating system piping, baseboards, convectors, radiators, etc. to protect the system from freeze damage. We describe the actual procedure for adding anti-freeze to the system, and we answer questions about how much anti-freeze to add and what type of anti-freeze to use.

This article also discusses the risk of poisoning the building water supply piping if you use the wrong type of boiler antifreeze, and we explain the effects of using anti-freeze in a heating system on the thermal conductivity of water and on building heating system efficiency and operating cost.

A steam explosion launched this boiler out of the building and into the parking lot.

According to the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors, low water conditions are the cause for 50% of all boiler related accidents. Low water conditions exist when water falls below a certain level recommended by the manufacturer for safe boiler operation. If water drops below the furnace level, the metal overheats and can rupture the furnace and tube sheet causing a steam explosion. The rapidly expanding steam has the potential to launch a boiler out of the building, as seen in the picture above.

Low water occurrences often result from a malfunction in the Low Water Cutoff (LWCO) control device, which fails to recognize a low water condition and shut off the fuel to the boiler.

Clogged Boiler Low Water Cutoff (LWCO)

In the picture to the left, notice the sludge that has accumulated in the LWCO. This sludge can develop quite rapidly, rendering this...
