Boiler Maintenance Tips

Boiler maintenance is vital for ensuring efficient and reliable heating in homes and businesses. Regular upkeep involves cleaning key components such as burners, heat exchangers, and flue passages to optimize heat transfer and combustion efficiency. Technicians also inspect and adjust controls, valves, and safety devices to ensure proper operation and prevent potential hazards. Additionally, water levels, pressure, and temperature are monitored and adjusted as needed to maintain optimal boiler performance. Routine maintenance not only extends the lifespan of boilers but also improves energy efficiency, reduces heating costs, and minimizes the risk of breakdowns, ensuring consistent warmth and comfort throughout the heating season.

While we understand that finances might be tight at the moment and boiler service may not be high on your list of priorities, we strongly recommend investing in it. Skipping annual maintenance not only shortens the lifespan of your boiler but also poses significant safety risks to you and your home. Without regular visits from an HVAC expert, your boiler will consume more energy, lose efficiency, and become increasingly susceptible to catastrophic failure.

Unchecked, your system can accumulate excess heat and pressure, essentially turning into a ticking time bomb. Moreover, if safety concerns aren’t enough to persuade you, there are warranty considerations to keep in mind. Many manufacturers stipulate proof of annual boiler maintenance as a prerequisite for warranty coverage. So, to avoid the potential expense of a major boiler repair, it’s wise to enroll in our yearly service program by giving us a call at (517) 879-2049.

We touched on the risks of neglecting boiler maintenance earlier, but now let’s focus on the positive outcomes of regular servicing by the HVAC specialists at Aspen One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning:

  • Early Problem Detection: What may start as a minor issue like a loose bolt or rivet can quickly escalate into a costly repair. During our comprehensive inspection, we meticulously check all components for signs of wear and tear, allowing us to address potential problems before they escalate into major issues.
  • Extended Boiler Lifespan: The relatively modest expense of routine boiler maintenance pales in comparison to the hefty cost of purchasing a new boiler. By enhancing system efficiency and minimizing wear and tear, regular maintenance can prolong your boiler’s lifespan by months or even years, affording you more time to budget for a replacement.
  • Enhanced Safety: Annual boiler maintenance not only safeguards your family against the dangers associated with neglecting upkeep but also reduces the risk of carbon monoxide exposure and system breakdowns. Schedule your annual boiler service with Aspen One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning to enjoy peace of mind.
  • Reduced Heating Expenses: Think of a boiler without regular maintenance as trying to run with ankle weights—it hampers performance. Through annual servicing, you provide your boiler with the care it needs to operate optimally. Many of our clients experience savings of 10 percent or more on their heating costs annually thanks to this single service.

Ensuring the safety and efficiency of your heating system in Jackson involves a comprehensive annual boiler maintenance check by our HVAC technician. During this service, we will:

  • Inspect around and under your boiler for leaking water
  • Make sure the area around the boiler is unobstructed
  • Check temperature and pressure readings
  • Check for error and service codes
  • Test pH levels of the water
  • Inspect and flush the condensate system
  • Examine and clean the burner, flame sensors, and ignitor
  • Inspect your vents for signs of blockage, corrosion, and deterioration
  • Verify control systems and safety devices are functioning as intended
  • Make sure the vent termination is unobstructed
  • Inspect the combustion air opening for blockages
  • Listen for unusual noises or vibrations from equipment

Home Maintenance Plans To Keep Your HVAC Equipment Running Strong

Frequently Asked Questions

Would you ask this question about oil changes? Probably not… As complex pieces of machinery, your air conditioner and furnace are not that different from your car. They need regular maintenance to function efficiently and routine inspections can ensure your equipment stays running strong and issue free year round. Annual maintenance inspections will catch small problems before they become major issues and will give you the peace of mind that you have done all you can to protect your investment on your home heating and cooling systems.

You’ll typically pay $80 to $200 for an A/C or furnace tune-up in Jackson. The amount depends on a variety of items including the number and size of your air conditioning units. Accessibility can also be a factor. While this may seem like a decent chunk of change, it’s a lot cheaper than paying for AC repair or replacement in Jackson. For savings opportunities, we suggest checking out our Comfort Club.

You hear your air conditioner buzzing along, but the number on the thermostat keeps climbing. When you check a nearby vent, you find the air from it is temperate at best. The lack of cold air has three likely causes:

  • Condenser Issues: Condensers in Jackson are typically located outside the home. They can sometimes get blocked by plants and other debris. Seasonal tree shedding is notorious. Clean it off. Your equipment should also be kept at least three feet from other objects.
  • Dirty Filters: You’re meant to change your furnace filter on a monthly basis. This is true even during AC season. Have you been doing that? If not, go check your filter. For anything darker than light grey, replace it with a new one. After changing the filter, give the unit time to adjust.
  • Evaporator Coil Issues: Filled with refrigerant, your evaporator coil is responsible for pulling the heat out of the air. If you see ice on it, the coil is likely the cause of your HVAC problems.

If these changes don’t help, give us a call at (517) 879-2049.

A lot of clients ask us this question. They want to know how much a new system or repair will cost before we evaluate your situation. Because of the numerous factors involved in heating and cooling systems, it’s nearly impossible to accurately provide estimates until we are on site and able to diagnose the problem. Once our technicians have been able to properly diagnose your issue, they will provide you with an itemized list of what needs to be repaired and will provide you with a final price to repair your HVAC issue.

With your typical HVAC system counting for roughly half of your energy consumption, you should always be looking for ways to cut down on energy consumption. If your electric or heating bills are giving you the blues, consider:

  • Upgrading Your System: Though this may seem like a counterintuitive way to save money, this move often pays for itself. Newer units not only cost less to run but also tend to be more environmentally friendly.
  • Opt for an Energy Efficient Cooling System: Going for an ENERGY STAR unit can save you hundreds of dollars each year according to data from the US Department of Energy. Rebates are often available to make new installations more affordable.
  • Landscape Around Your Unit: Make sure that the area around your air conditioner is clear of brush and debris. Plants should be kept two to three feet away from the equipment. You should also turn off the unit every so often to hose down the sides. These obstacles can make it more difficult for your unit to perform at an acceptable level.
  • Keep Your Curtains Closed: To limit summer cooling costs in Jackson, make sure to keep your curtains and windows closed. The less heat introduced into your rooms, the more efficiently your air conditioner can do its job.

Below are a few quick tips to help you navigate no heat issues at your home before calling a technician to diagnose your issue:

  • Is power getting to your furnace or heater? Is a fuse or circuit breaker tripped? Make sure your power switch is in the ON position.
  • When was the last time you swapped out your filter? If it’s been a while, try installing a new filter first. This can solve a lot of heating problems.
  • Verify your thermostat is set to “heat” and not “cool”. If you notice the display is dim, try swapping out the batteries on the back of the unit.
  • Is there snow or other debris blocking your outdoor vent? If so, remove the obstruction. This will allow your system to work more effectively.

If you still don’t have heat, give us a call right away at (517) 879-2049 and we will get a technician to your home ASAP to diagnose and repair your heating issue.
