Ensuring that your boiler is operating properly is very important to the efficiency, reliability and safety of your boiler. Boilers are a great way to heat your home, but they need to be repaired as soon as issues arise. Boiler repair shouldn’t be ignored or put off for any reason, especially if you’re planning on using your boiler while there’s an issue.
Boiler Repair Checklist
- Safety Valve Re-calculation & Re-certification: The safety valve on a boiler is incredibly important as it is the final line of defence against any sort of catastrophic boiler failure such as over-pressurization. Modern boilers usually have safety checks and controls, but older models need to be checked regularly to ensure they’re functioning properly incase repair or replacement is necessary.
- Fireside Gaskets: Fireside gaskets should be checked regularly and replaced as necessary. Consulting with professional Toronto boiler repair services to ensure this is done correctly is essential to the health of your boiler.
- Boiler Pressure Gauge Re-calculating: Many boilers have pressure gauges that are mounted directly on the boiler itself. These gauges can deteriorate over time and become less accurate. If the gauge is showing more or less pressure than the actual pressure inside the boiler you boiler might not be operating efficiently or safely. A professional boiler technician can ensure your boiler gauge is properly calibrated.
- Flat Glass Replacement: The gauges on your boiler are very simple analog tools that tell you all the information you need to know about your boiler. As they age they can become weak points in your boiler system as the flat glass over the meters can weaken. If the glass cracks or breaks you could be in for significant boiler downtime.
