Avoid an emergency service call
During boiler startup, it’s common there will be glitches to be worked out. While issues are typically minor to troubleshoot, you can prevent costly surprises by being proactive. The earlier the better, if issues do arise, you can afford yourself time to order parts and schedule repairs. Moreover, you can avoid emergency boiler rental and the costs associated with it.
Are you switching to dual fuels?
If you are switching from natural gas to tap into your fuel oil, make sure your alternate fuel source is operating reliability. If your alternate fuel has been sitting for some time, the quality of your fuel oil may not be ideal for proper boiler operation. Call your energy supplier to request that your fuel source be tested for proper quality.
Corrosion can occur
For seasonal boilers, even the best boiler water treatment program must be supplemented to prevent corrosion during the boiler’s non-operating months. Increased oxygen levels can cause pitting in steel tube sheets and boiler tubes. IEC can replace or repair any pitted tubes and verify the integrity of the boiler.
Here are a few tips to keep your boilers in optimal operating condition:
- Use and maintain boiler logs – download our sample logs
- Walk around your boiler and check for obvious problems like leaks
- Check all safety controls and valves for proper operation, especially the main and auxiliary low-water cutoff
