The Maintenance Process
Routine maintenance is especially important during the winter season. There are many components to your gas boiler, so we’ll make sure that they are all working correctly. Make sure start to practice this procedure once the weather starts to take a dip:
Examine Your Electrical Controls:
Keep a close eye on all electrical connections. Make sure all wiring is intact and that there are no loose connections. Monitor the electrical wires to make sure that there is no overheating. This can melt your wires and potentially lead to more serious problems down the road. If this is the case, you made need to replace some burner controls.
Inspect the Inner Workings of The Burner:
Make a routine inspection on the burner system itself. Remove the burner so you can make enough room for a complete inspection. This gives you a chance to make adjustments to the combustion control panel.
Check All Flue Passages and Vent Pipes:
The flue passage will show you if the boiler is burning properly and the vent pipe is responsible for producing comfortable air flow. Keep a sharp eye on the flue gas and clean out any clutter that may clog into the passageway. Make sure to dry out the vent pipes, because if there’s too much moisture, then that means the system is running too cold.
Monitor Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, and Carbon Monoxide Levels:
An adequate amount of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide is needed to keep your boiler system running well. You should have no more than 10% carbon dioxide and less than 20 parts per million carbon monoxide in your flue gas intake.
Enjoy the Results:
Practicing this maintenance protocol will improve the quality of life on your boiler. Routine cleanings, wire replacement, and water and gas replenishment will help your boiler produce comfortable levels of heat for your building.
