Three Signs You Need Service for Your Commercial Boiler
If you have an office space that’s heated with a commercial boiler, congratulations –you’ve got a powerful way to heat your workplace that doesn’t blow around dust, allergens, or pollutants and requires minimal maintenance to perform at its best.
But minimal maintenance doesn’t mean no maintenance.
Although boilers are known for being heavy-duty workhorses, they are still machines –and like any machine, they need periodic professional care to run properly. In fact, The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors requires commercial boilers to undergo at least one inspection per year by a licensed boiler contractor – sometimes two, depending on the system.
If you haven’t had your commercial boiler serviced yet this year, time is running out – schedule a service visit today. If you have had boiler maintenance in 2019 but notice any of these signs, it could be time for another visit from a commercial heating expert:
- A drop in temperature – If your property remains cold despite the boiler switched on, you could have a boiler problem. Check your radiators and pipes while your boiler is on, and check other areas of the building to see if the problem is consistent throughout your location.
- A spike in fuel bills – Fuel prices rise, but typically not so quickly that you notice them immediately. If you see a big jump in your heating bill, it could be caused by the inefficient operation of a malfunctioning boiler.
- Unusual noises – Whirring, clunking, dinging, and other sounds are usually warning signs of a problem that will get worse if not addressed.
