Ever wanted to know what is involved in a commercial boiler service?
Let’s break it down for you!
Commercial boilers are designed to provide heating and hot water to large facilities at an accelerated rate. This means that commercial boilers are more often than not, much larger and complicated than the typical domestic boilers you’d see in your household.
What does a commercial boiler service include?
Our Gas Safe registered engineers will ensure that your commercial boiler servicing will be carried out to the set guidelines and standards expected.
Firstly, the most important thing the engineer checks with your commercial boiler is that it’s running properly and safely. They will also check to see if it is running at full efficiency and doesn’t show any signs that could indicate the possibility of it breaking down in the near future.
Another factor the engineer will assess the boiler for, are any potential risks to the building and its occupants. This could be gas leaks, flooding potential, carbon monoxide levels and more.
One relatively unknown fact is that while full inspections are required by law to be carried out by a registered professional, you yourself can carry out certain checks before needing to call in an engineer.
These checks include:
• Looking for potential cracks, leaks, and odd noises
• Comparing the boiler pressure readings to that of an average commercial boiler
• Making sure the boiler is clean to prevent blockage or debris build-up
• Checking the flame is blue (For gas boilers)
• Bleeding radiators to release trapped air in the system
• Insulating the pipes to prevent them from freezing in the colder months.
These tips will help to keep your commercial boiler running smoothly, but it is still recommended to get it annually checked by a registered engineer, even if things look fine, there could be underlying issues, so it’s better to have that peace of mind.
