Residential Oil and Gas Boiler MaintenanceWhether you have a gas or oil boiler, it's important that it be kept clean and properly tuned to keep it running safely and efficiently all winter long. Annual boiler maintenance will pay for itself in prolonged heating system lifespan and fewer service calls.
An Air Specialties Boiler Tune-Up will find the small problems that could lead unsafe carbon monoxide levels or breakdowns. We do the following:
Clean the Combustion ChamberThe combustion chamber is where fuel mixes with air and is ignited, generating heat. The byproducts of combustion are soot, water vapor and carbon dioxide. If soot is allowed to buildup it can cause the chamber walls to corrode. The chamber is also inspected for holes or corrosion.
Inspect the Flue PipeHoles in the flue pipe can leak carbon monoxide so corroded flue pipe should be replaced.
Replace the Oil FilterA clean oil filter is important for keeping oil-burner nozzle free of contaminants, which could result in a combustion problems that can shut down the system.
Adjust the Burner and Test EfficiencyA combustion analyzer is used to calculate furnace efficiency by measuring gasses in the exhaust flue. The burner's air gates are adjusted as needed for the proper fuel to air mixture. The oil nozzle, which atomizes the fuel just before it ignites, is inspected and replaced if needed.
