Preventive Maintenance for Gas Boilers

Technician adjusting a button

In order to extend the life of your gas boiler, it is important to remember to carry out regular maintenance checks. In this article, Plomberie Chauffage Normand, an expert in plumbing and heating solutions in Montreal, explains everything about preventive maintenance services for gas heating systems.


When is It Necessary to Do the Maintenance of Your Boiler?

According to the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ), it is recommended that maintenance be carried out on a gas boiler at least once a year. If your boiler is only used to heat your home, it's important to perform maintenance before the start of winter. This is because lack of use in summer can generate humidity inside the system and damage it.


Maintenance Tasks You Can Do Yourself

Here are some maintenance tasks that you can put into practice to keep your gas heating system running smoothly:


·       Pay attention to the temperature settings, especially in the case of prolonged absences.


·       Check your heating system's external venting circuit carefully to make sure there are no blockages caused by accumulations of leaves, stones, or other natural debris.


Professional Boiler Maintenance Services

Your plumber or heating engineer can help you do preventive maintenance on your boiler. During his inspection, he will check and clean the various components of the system, optimize the necessary adjustments, and evaluate the energy performance, the pollutant particle emissions, and the carbon monoxide level.


Once these steps have been completed, he will then give you a certificate which will include a summary of his observations, as well as his recommendations concerning the optimal use of your boiler.


Here are the different components that a plumber or heating engineer reviews during a preventive maintenance exercise:


·       The heating element

·       The burner

·       The pilot light

·       The pump

·       Internal regulatory bodies

·       The temperature limiter

·       The safety valve

·       The backflow preventer

·       The overflow protection device

·       The gas flow control

·       The domestic hot water temperature

·       The expansion tank

·       The gas and water circuits

·       The carbon monoxide control
