Top boiler maintenance tips

Installing a new boiler in your home is a significant investment that will have a significant impact on the functionality of your home. After all, your heating system will keep your home warm and comfortable at all times, while also supplying you with a steady supply of hot water for drinking, washing dishes, and showering. With these considerations in mind, it is critical to safeguard your investment and maintain your boiler as efficiently as possible. Here are some pointers you can use even if you don't have access to an accredited engineer.

1. Get an annual boiler service

Let's start with the basics: one of the greatest methods to safeguard your boiler is to schedule a yearly servicing with a reputable company (ideally the company that installed the unit in the first place). The key advantage of this is that it allows you to spot minor flaws and difficulties before they become too serious, which can then be remedied with less hassle and for a modest amount of money. Another thing to consider is that having your boiler serviced annually may be a requirement of your manufacturer's warranty. In this case, annual service protects your investment by preventing you from having to pay for repairs during the life of your boiler.

2. Make use of a Power Flushing Service 

You might also utilise a power flushing service to get the most out of your boiler and keep it in good working order for a long time. While a power flush may only be required every five years or so, this operation uses specialised cleaning agents to eliminate remnants of sludge, rust, and debris from your heating system. This must be done by a qualified heating engineer, and it can provide several benefits like increased efficiency, improved performance, and the ability to maintain hotter water temperatures.

3. Bleed your radiators 

On occasion, you may notice cold spots on your radiators. This is a common problem, and it may signal that air has become trapped in your heating system. This is readily remedied by bleeding your radiator, which involves releasing trapped air and extra fluid until the heat returns. This should not only increase performance and convection heat projection, but also lower pressure in your boiler.
