Why Boilers Require Annual Maintenance
A hydronic heating system is a symphony of water, piping, electronics, and science. The challenge with this orchestra of heating is the longer it plays, the more it gets out of tune in the following ways.
A boiler combines natural gas, fire, electricity, water and exhaust in a 24” x 24” ” thin metal box hanging on the wall or sitting on the floor in your basement. With all that’s in play in a hydronic heating system, there is a lot that could go wrong. A boiler that is neglected can become unsafe very quickly. Insuring your boiler is operating safely is a priority during an Austin Plumbing, Heating & Air boiler tune-up.
Leaking Boiler Pipes & Valves = Problems
The network of piping involved in a properly functioning hydronic heating system is quite large. Part of the complete boiler tune we perform is a visual inspection of this piping to ensure it’s working correctly and leak free.
Boiler Controls & Electronics Wear
A boiler system can cycle on and off thousands of times per season. Every time the boiler kicks in there is a relay race of electronic components involved. Each of these switches wear over time and need to be inspected, recalibrated or replaced.
Heat Exchanger Build Up
Over time, sediment and build up accumulates in your boiler’s heat exchanger and needs to be flushed out before it causes larger issues. Monitoring the flow through your boiler is an important step and something we check every year.

Yes. Annual maintenance is required by all boiler manufacturers. Without it, your boiler is at risk of not being covered by warranty.
The majority of boiler no heat calls we run are the direct result of something not being maintained on the boiler. Often it’s the little stuff that we take care of during the tune-up that causes the no heat calls and boiler breakdowns.
Boilers are a sophisticated heating machine and if they get out of tune, their efficiency can drop a ton. During the tune-up we will use a combustion analyzer and fine tune how the boiler is running so you get extreme efficiency.
We work on many older boiler systems. No matter the age of your boiler, it and your hydronic or in-floor heating system can benefit from annual maintenance and a boiler tune-up.
