Buildup of soot and scale will reduce your boiler’s efficiency and could lead to system failure. This residue can coat the heat transfer surfaces and tubes of your boiler, causing interference with combustion and water treatment.

Replacing Worn Parts

By conducting a thorough inspection of your boiler, we can determine if certain parts need to be replaced. Parts such as pressure gauges, burners and thermostats can be replaced to make your boiler last for years to come. We also recommend insulating pipes, valves and fittings to reduce heat loss.


Over time, total dissolved solids cause scale, making it imperative to keep the solids in your boiler below a certain limit. With a blowdown, the water from your boiler is drained to remove some of those dissolved solids down and remedy this issue. Having this service done on a consistent basis can help efficiency.

In addition to those three practices, we also recommend that you have your thermostat programmed correctly, check for leaks and clear your vents.
