3 Tips For Commercial Boiler Repair And Maintenance

Posted on

Your commercial boiler is responsible for making better use of the energy in your business. This is heavy duty work that requires you to seek the knowledge of a professional, learn what you can do to get the best performance and make the proper repairs to keep the boiler operating to its full potential. With this in mind, consider these points below so that your boiler works for you without breaking down. 

Tip #1: Know How To Find The Best Commercial Boiler Repair Contractors

No matter what kind of commercial boiler repair you require, it is essential that you find credible contractors to come out to your property. One of the first places to check is a referral from another business that you have a good rapport with. In many cases, a good referral can help you land the service of a company that is professional and very skilled. You should also research the certifications that the commercial boiler repair contractors hold. For instance, if they are NATE certified, this is a good sign that they are skilled with maintaining commercial boilers, air conditioners and hydroponic systems. By making the best choice on a commercial boiler repair contractor, you can have the peace of mind that your system will be fixed despite any issues you have with it.

Tip #2: Handle The Small Jobs 

Instead of waiting for big problems to arise with your commercial boiler, you should stay on top of the little jobs. For example, have a professional periodically inspect the fluids of your boiler, such as oil and hydraulic oil. Doing this will make sure that the boiler's mechanical processes are carried out. You should also call up a contractor to power flush your boiler, which should only cost you approximately $100 or so, depending on your system.

Tip #3: Preventatively Maintain Your Commercial Boiler With A Service Contract

A service contract will help you to preventatively maintain your boiler. Sit down with a few HVAC contractors to go over what types of maintenance will be covered with a service contract, and how often they will provide service. Paying for this work up front can save you some money as well, since boiler repair visits can easily reach costs between $171 and $524. Take the age of your boiler and the type of repairs in consideration, so that you can make the best decision for you. 

Use these three points to get the best service from your boiler.
