Boiler Maintenance Advice

Maintenance of a boiler is not rocket science; Here is some Boiler Maintenance Advice that will help you keep the boiler in pretty good condition. If maintained properly, your boiler can work flawlessly for years! But if you ever need any boiler maintenance, boiler service, boiler installation or anything else boiler related, get in contact with us. Here are some of our top tips for maintaining your boiler:

  1. Boiler Service

To ensure your boiler is working at top condition, you should get your boiler serviced at least once a year. We can help with your boiler service so we can take a glance at your boiler condition. B&R Heating will carry out general inspections to check whether everything is running effectively and will keep you in the loop throughout. This way, there are no hidden costs!

  1. Power Flushing

Power flushing helps in cleansing unwanted elements from the boiler or central heating system. This process includes the removal of rust, sludge, and any other material that grows  in the radiators/central cooling system, with the help of a chemical solution. By doing so, you can significantly enhance your system’s effectiveness & longevity. This is only needed every 5 to 10 years. 

  1. Bleeding The Radiators

Bleeding the radiators improves your radiator’s effectiveness. Radiators sometimes need to release air that’s trapped inside as they can start experiencing cold spots or take forever to heat up. By doing this, you can help avoid any boiler repair whilst increasing boiler efficiency and saving your electricity!

  1. Switching Off Your Boiler

The last and most important thing to do is to turn your boiler off. When the sun goes down and the winter months come, it’s preferred not to switch off boilers. Let the boiler do the job during winter and avoid any frozen pipes. However, you can switch your boiler on for 15 minutes per month during the warmer seasons to prevent issues when the climate falls again.
