Boiler maintenance professionals use large high-volume vacuum systems to remove ash and other debris from the boiler parts. They may also use high pressure water blasting equipment to descale or remove mineral buildup and contaminates from the boiler walls. Small boilers do not require as much equipment as they may be cleaned quickly with a hand brush. Whatever services are needed, a qualified Gas Registered boiler engineer from our network of experts will be able to do the job.
Paying no attention to a boiler until it malfunctions can result in excessive costs for replacing parts or even replacing the entire boiler. An annual checkup by a boiler maintenance professional can not only prevent expensive repairs or replacement costs, but can actually save money year round by making the boiler operate more efficiently. Going year after year without having regular maintenance performed on a boiler will cause it to be less energy efficient. Problems like buildup of corrosion will compound each year resulting in higher overall energy costs. In contrast, regular yearly maintenance can reduce monthly utility bills and extend the life of the boiler by as much as 5 to 10 years.
A boiler’s flue is a metal tube that comes from the top of the boiler and connects to the wall. The purpose of the flue is to carry waste gas away from the boiler and to the air outside. A poorly maintained flue that has developed holes or loose joints could begin to leak carbon monoxide which would endanger anyone in the vicinity. The flue is one of the most important components of a boiler and it is vital that it be in good working condition at all times.
While it is possible for basic boiler-related tasks such as understanding how your unit works, checking its pressure and bleeding your home’s radiators to be done as DIY tasks, it is not recommended that more intricate tasks be tackled in this manner. In fact, if your boiler starts to make unusual noises or its pressure isn’t remaining constant, it is recommended that you enlist the help of Scottish Borders Gas Safe boiler engineers as soon as possible. This will help prevent further damage from being done to the unit and possibly even extend its lifespan as well.
Annual boiler safety inspections are crucial for the health and safety of people living in a home or office building. Boiler maintenance Scottish Borders experts look for tiny cracks in the heat exchanger which can also allow carbon monoxide to seep into a home or building and sicken or kill the inhabitants. At least 50 deaths in the UK each year can be attributed to faulty boilers. This is why it is so important to have a Gas Safe registered engineer perform boiler maintenance services on an annual basis.
