Boiler Maintenance in Colorado Springs, CO by Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning

It’s a common occurrence for a family to move into a new home and discover that the boiler already installed years ago is still working well—and will continue to provide cozy heating for the new family for years to come. Boilers have that sort of longevity and durability. But anyone who moves into a house and finds an older boiler that is still in excellent shape can guarantee that the boiler has received regular maintenance to keep it in that condition.

Whether the boiler in your home is the one that came with it, or one you had installed, it must have annual maintenance. Without these yearly inspections and tune–ups, the heater will begin to deteriorate, leading to numerous repairs, elevated energy bills, and a shortened system lifespan. You can schedule boiler maintenance with Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning that will make sure your boiler lasts through many winters keeping your household warm.

Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning provides professional boiler maintenance in Colorado Springs, CO and the surrounding areas.

Why Boiler Maintenance Is So Important

All heating systems, such as furnaces and heat pumps, require regular pre–season maintenance in order to prevent age from getting an early grip on them, leading to a mechanical decline and inefficient performance. Although boilers contain fewer mechanical components than furnaces and heat pumps, they still must receive maintenance to help them work at their best and avoid unnecessary repairs. Only with these inspections and tune–ups can a boiler manage to reach (or exceed) its manufacturer’s estimated lifespan.

With boilers, a specific issue that maintenance addresses is the effect of water on the system. Leaks can start to occur in places that you may not notice, or scale may begin to develop along the inside of the tank leading to overheating. A maintenance technician will identify these trouble spots and take care of them.

Another common maintenance concern for boilers is when sediment accumulates inside the tank. Occasionally, the boiler will need flushing during maintenance to clean out the water tank and restore the boiler.

Whether you have an electric–powered or gas–powered boiler, it needs to have its power source checked to make sure that it works correctly and is not in danger of failing in the near future. Gas boilers require special attention to make certain that there is adequate gas pressure, the burner is clean, and there are no possibly hazardous leaks.

Even if maintenance catches no potential repair issues, it will still take care of the important cleaning and tune–ups that will help the boiler continue to work at the highest efficiency possible. A boiler that receives annual maintenance will retain 95% of its energy efficiency throughout its lifetime, while one that doesn’t receive maintenance will lose 5% or more of its efficiency every year.
