Why Clean Your Boiler?
- Clean boilers have higher efficiency and in effect cost less to maintain and operate.
- Clean boilers use less fuel.
- Cleanings give technicians a chance to catch any foreseeable issues and also give the customer and update on the condition of their boiler.
- In the long run, cleaning your boiler saves you money and allows you to catch issues that may be unforeseen.
How We Do Cleanings
Technicians arrive to the job site prepared with a thorough checklist and the notable skill and knowledge to complete the cleaning. Before even beginning the cleaning, they check the boiler/furnace for any leaks, corrosion, or soot. Any irregularities are noted and addressed in a timely manner.
The technicians then take the smoke pipe down and take the jacket off the boiler to brush and vacuum the passageways inside the boiler. After, they brush and vacuum the smoke pipe and inspect for any holes. If found, holes are repaired. Once finished with any repairs to the smoke pipe, technicians go to the burner and pull out the nozzle and electrode assembly to clean out any soot buildup in the chamber. When finished, technicians change the nozzle and check to see if the electrodes need to be replaced. If an electrode change is unnecessary, the technician will adjust the electrodes to increase efficiency. If it is required that the technician change the electrodes, an additional fee will be added to the bill.
Next, the technician then checks the coupling and tests the different parts in the burner for operation. When everything is tested to the satisfaction of the technician, the reassemble the parts and check to make sure all parts operate better than when they arrived.
Lastly, the technician will check the efficiency, clean up their tools, and wipe down the boiler. The technician will collect payment for the bill by cash, check, or credit card. Payment is due at the time of service. All technicians double check their work and update the customer on the efficiency and overall condition of their boiler.
