It’s hard to think about facility heating when we’re in shorts and t-shirts, but your winter comfort depends on your summer planning.
Particularly now (summer 2023), lead times on boilers are 12 (condensing boilers) to 30 (steam boilers) weeks out. This means you could find yourself out in the cold – literally – if your boiler needs replacing. Even boiler parts are experiencing longer-than-usual lead times. And, according to the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors, most boiler incidents are caused by poor maintenance practices, operator error, and defective low water cutoffs. This means routine maintenance is essential to keeping your boiler operating safely and efficiently.
Obviously 😉, we think the best solution is to call in a professional, but here are some tips compliments of the CM3 Maintenance Team and the U.S. Department of Energy, if you’re doing your own boiler maintenance.
