The Health and Safety Measures of Boiler Maintenance

At DMC Plumbing and Heating, we provide Boiler Repair in Langley and around the Lower Mainland, and although a lot of homeowners aren’t aware of this little known fact, having your boiler serviced on an annual basis is an ideal practice.

Having your boiler maintained and serviced can save your money, but it can also ensure you, your family or your employees are not at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning.

Understanding Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is odorless, colourless and can be fatal. It is found in fumes within items such as fireplaces, gas ranges, furnaces and boilers – among other things.

The symptoms include headache, dizziness, upset stomach, vomiting, weakness, chest pain, and confusion, and often might seem like you have the flu. Alternately, it can simply put you to sleep and put you at risk for passing away without ever knowing you have been exposed to CO.

This is a really good reason to have your boiler maintained, along with ensuring you have a CO detector in your home.

Boiler Maintenance – Quality Assurance and Efficiency

Having your boiler maintained also will ensure your boiler is efficient, potentially reducing your fuel costs by up to 10%, which could result in substantial accumulative annual savings.

Checklist for Boiler Servicing

  • Stripping and cleaning boiler heat exchange
  • General visual inspection for wear
  • Replacing nozzle and filter as needed

Whether you check your boiler at the end of the winter season or before it begins, choosing a time to have it annually inspected can save you money, and ensure the health of everyone in your home or business is not at risk.
