Industrial boilers are an essential part of any commercial building, no matter if it is full of offices or apartments. While you are most likely aware of the importance of facility and preventive maintenance when it comes to your boiler, it can be easy to overlook the fundamentals. Keep these boiler maintenance tips in mind to make sure that your boiler continues running its best for years to come.
- Check fuel and electricity – even though it may sound obvious, checking the gas level and electricity of your boiler is essential. Your boiler should have the correct level of power and fuel at all times. Checking the integrity of the electrical wiring is just as important, since wear and tear on wires poses one of the greatest safety threats to both the unit and the entire building.
- Water pressure level inspections – all commercial boilers have a pressure gauge, which should always be working well enough to read easily. Both high and low pressure reading can mean trouble. Make sure that all maintenance employees double check any areas where leaking occurs, which may mean that the boiler needs to be re-pressurized.
- Warning sign issues – any warning signs should be dealt with as soon as possible. Any rattling or clanging noises, soot or debris emissions, or strange odors can be a warning sign of a much more serious issue. If any employee finds something out of the ordinary with the boiler, make sure that it is fixed as soon as possible to prevent a much more serious issue from developing.
- Inspect the thermostat and timer – an issue with the timer or thermostat can mean that the boiler is not able to properly distribute temperatures evenly, which can cause an increase in energy consumption. Checking the thermostat and timer regularly can help to ensure efficient boiler function.
