Spring Boiler Maintenance Tips

Spring Boiler Maintenance Tips

Boilers are among essential components in any home. Poorly maintained boilers lead to energy wastage and make the system inefficient. Therefore, maintenance is a critical occurrence that each homeowner must prioritize for their boilers to serve efficiently.

Significance of Boiler Maintenance in The Greater Toronto Area

Maintaining your boiler comes with several advantages. For starters, it improves the lifespan as it reduces the chances of a breakdown. With proper maintenance schedules, your boiler will continue to serve without technical issues. If not properly maintained, the system consumes more power, leading to accelerated bills. Maintenance procedures keep the boiler clean and free from dust buildup. Contact A-Plus Quality today for boiler maintenance in Toronto and surrounding areas. 

Maintenance Tips for Residential Boilers

Observe regular servicing no matter how perfect your boiler appears, schedule an annual maintenance appointment. You may not identify issues physically, which is why you should not wait for the system to fail. An expert assesses the system for possible problems during the process of boiler maintenance in the Greater Toronto Area. Regular maintenance allows early detection of issues, stopping them from damaging the entire system. That way, homeowners avoid the cost of buying a new boiler and the installation budget.

Monitor the Boiler Pressure More Often

One of the safety precautions that homeowners should never overlook is checking the boiler pressure time-to-time. Monitor the gauge to know when you need to refill it. When the levels go below one bar, pressurize the system to avoid mechanical issues.

Keep the Radiators Balanced

Balancing the radiators improves performance and prevents an uneven supply of hot water in your home. Contacting a certified technician in the Greater Toronto Area from A-Plus Quality HVAC Services may be necessary if you have challenges in balancing your radiators.

Check for Blockages

Inspect your boiler regularly to remove any blockages. The system requires proper air circulation to operate effectively, and this is not achievable with clutter blocking the way. Avoid covering the air vents or blocking the outside chimneys with any object.

While becoming a homeowner features loads of responsibilities, never forget to maintain your residential boiler. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for an A-Plus Quality technician to have your boiler maintained in the Greater Toronto Area and surrounding regions.

Client Testimonials

  • First experience was on New Year's Day, 2020, when furnace stopped. Called A-Plus and they had a rep (Jack) out quickly. He did some troubleshooting. He wasn't giving BS. Gave me options on repairing or replacing. Non-biased, no pressure. I chose replace and it was done the next day. Good experience all around. Second experience was early March, 2021 when a harsh chemical smell emanating from the furnace room, and pushed through the HVAC venting, permeated the house. Very concerning. Was late night, called A-Plus, immediately answered and suggested some safety moves for the evening. Booked a visit for the morning. Jack again came and assessed the issue and advised where the smell came from (outside). Again, very professional, quick, no BS, good guy. Completely satisfied with the service after often being given the BS treatment from other service providers for the house. Would definitely recommend.

FAQ

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!
