Preventative Maintenance for Cincinnati Boilers


Furnaces aren’t the only type of heating system which requires seasonal preventative maintenance. Be sure your residential boiler in Cincinnati receives professional care to improve performance and longevity this winter. Commercial boilers should also undergo preventative maintenance.

Preventative Maintenance for Boilers

Boiler cleaning

One important step our technicians take when maintaining a boiler system is to clean the boiler. Burners, flues, heating elements, and other components are cleaned of dust, soot, and other debris which have settled on the system. Boiler cleaning helps the system effectively burn heating fuel, and that combustion byproducts will be vented outdoors properly during heating cycles.

Carbon monoxide testing

Your boiler system will be tested for carbon monoxide, which results from the burning of heating fuel. If carbon monoxide isn’t vented out of the home properly, or components aren’t operating effectively, this dangerous combustion byproduct can back up into the home, which can be deadly. Preventative maintenance makes sure carbon monoxide levels are safe and components are operating properly.

Care for boiler components

Our NATE-certified boiler technicians inspect the entire system to make sure all components are working correctly. They visually check all components and listen for concerning noises which can indicate a problem with system performance.

Moving parts such as valves and switches are lubricated to ensure peak performance. If problems are detected within the boiler system, they can be professionally repaired so that the system will operate correctly when it’s time to heat your Cincinnati home.

During your boiler preventative maintenance visit, the technician will also change the system’s filter, if needed. Boiler filters should be changed every one to two months during heating season.
