Frequently Asked Questions:
What is a boiler, and, what is its purpose in my home?
A boiler is a vessel used to heat water thru extreme pressure. At the completion of this process the liquid is now converted to heated vapors, now ready to be used in various processes to heat your home and utilities. Your boiler works simultaneously with your hot water tank- which allows a constant supply of hot water to be dispersed accordingly throughout your home.
Does my heating unit require maintenance services?
Absolutely yes! It is Imperative that you (the homeowner) work with a QUALIFIED gas technician throughout the heating season to maintain your heating unit. Here is an idea of things that should be visually inspected on a monthly basis (during the season) - Deterioration of the visible controls, wiring and sheet metal components, Water leaks, Carbon ("soot") in or near the burner compartment area.
Why is Maintenance so important?
Poor Maintenance or installation of your heating unit can result in Carbon Monoxide leakage throughout your home.
What is Carbon Monoxide and how does it affect me?
Carbon Monoxide is formed by the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels- (Gas which in most cases provides the fuel in order for your boiler to function). Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, POISONOUS gas. Throughout each heating season many families have fell victim to this HAZARDOUS gas due to improper maintenance of their heating unit. It happens thousands of times – ILLNESS or even DEATH from CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING
All Boilers Installed by Heatspan Come Equipped with Safety Shut off Switches… If Carbon Monoxide Fumes Are Leaking Out Of the Boiler into Your Home your Boiler Will Automatically Shutdown
What are some preventative measures I can take to avoid this from happening in my home?
Scheduling frequent maintenance as we said previously is very important. Also you (the homeowner) should always be aware of the “boiler room” conditions. Keep the area around the boiler free of objects which are flammable or which could obstruct the flow of air into and around the boiler. Do not store or use sources of hydrocarbons such as bleaches, fabric softeners, paints, cleaners, or cat boxes near the boiler. Traces of these chemicals can be drawn into the boiler, causing severe corrosion damage to the boiler. Visually inspect boiler controls, any sight of mud, sludge, or grease in water sight glass is an indication of services needed IMMEDIATLEY.
