If suspect that your boiler isn’t working as good as it should, it may be time to contact Anytime Plumbing for boiler service. Your boiler depends on the pipes or radiators that your heating system is equipped with. With this type of system, you get consistent heat because there are no blowers to create any kind of draft. However, you could also have an aging system or a leaking pipe somewhere that is robbing you of your comfort and warmth. Our specialists can do preventative maintenance, make repairs, or install a newer upgraded model when providing our services. Even if they are called for a specific job, they’ll quickly evaluate the current working of the boiler system and let you know if anything else needs attention.

What are some of the more common boiler problems?
Without regular preventative maintenance and boiler service, a boiler will suffer as it ages by accumulating a build-up of mineral deposits that typically consist of either calcium carbonate and/or magnesium carbonate. These mineral deposits can cause leaking pipes because of the pressure they put on them. Furthermore, air in the pipes causes a boiler to operate inefficiently which in turn, increases your monthly utility bills.
All the while, you’re not getting any warmer. Common boiler problems include that we have seen over the years include:
- broken thermostats
- leaking boilers
- leaking pipes
- low boiler water levels
- malfunctioning pilot lights

What is included in our boiler service?
As an integral household component, especially during the winter months, you want to ensure that it’s working properly every time you need it. You wouldn’t drive your vehicle without ever getting it serviced, would you? Then why would you do the same thing with your broiler? Our boiler preventative maintenance plan includes (not in this order):
- analyze the flue gas
- check all ignition components and flame quality
- check all operating pressures
- check for leaks
- check the system pressure
- check to see burners are operating properly and safely

- clean system filter

- perform a second leak check
- perform a visual check

So, how often should you service your boiler? That depends on the manufacturer. But, usually you should have your boiler serviced every 12 months starting one year from the installation date. Otherwise, it could void the manufacturer’s warranty.
