Is YOUR Boiler In Need Of A Deep Clean?
Today, the National Boiler Codes specify that all commercial boilers must be checked by a licensed boiler contractor at least once each year. That’s a good start, but the truth is that as the market has pushed the need for higher efficiency equipment — such as condensing, fully-modulating systems — boilers and burners may require two or more maintenance checks each year.
Before we even start with the boiler maintenance process, make sure that as you put a maintenance plan in place you carefully record baseline conditions. Keep a detailed record of all conditions and the work you do. The trail of information is too often neglected, lengthening the time it take to perform system diagnostics. Basic record-keeping is essential.
Commercial boilers are essential to the functioning of many businesses. By regulating building temperatures, they keep your workers in comfortable, safe conditions.

Commercial Boiler Maintenance: Cleaning
The dirtier your boiler is, the less efficient it’s going to be.
This means you’ll be using more power to get the same amount of heat from your boiler.
At the same time, because the boiler has to work harder, it’s going to have a shorter lifespan.
To prevent this, you should get the boiler cleaned at least once a year.
Inspect Your Commercial Boiler Regularly
Paying attention to your boiler’s operation allows you to catch problems before they become costly.
Is your boiler leaking? If so, you’ll want to call someone to figure out where the leak is coming from.
Potential culprits include the air piping, flue gas vent piping, relief valve discharge piping, boiler relief valve, or hydronic piping.
Has There Been A Change In Performance?
If it’s going outside its temperature range, or if its efficiency has been decreasing, this will let you know that you need to call a contractor.
There are more obvious signs, too, that you don’t want to ignore: if your boiler is giving you an error code, or if it’s started making new noises, you’ll want to call in a professional to determine the source of the problem.
