What is a boiler?
A boiler is an appliance used to heat a building through the use of hot water or steam. Different boilers run on different fuels such as heating oil, propane or natural gas. Boilers turn water into steam, which is passed through pipes until it reaches baseboard radiators, floor systems, or fan coil units where they then heat the surrounding air.
A boiler should be regularly inspected to ensure they are working at optimum efficiency. Only experienced experts who have received specific training on boilers should work on these pressure vessels.

How often do boilers require maintenance?
Boilers, both residential and commercial, require annual maintenance to work efficiently. However, each make and model requires a different periodic maintenance schedule. We suggest that boilers be checked on an annual basis before cold weather sets in. Contact Plumbers 911 for all your boiler maintenance needs.
