Boiler Tune-Up

Only a licensed, trained professional should perform maintenance on your boiler to ensure your safety and comfort, and to avoid voiding the manufacturer’s warranty. There are a number of performance checks that the homeowner should carry out on a weekly basis, including the following:

  • Ensure the area around the boiler is free of debris, combustible materials, and obstructions.
  • Listen for any unusual noises or vibrations.
  • Inspect the floor beneath and around the unit, watching for signs of water leakage.
  • If your boiler has a display panel, watch for error, or service codes, and call McAllister for immediate service.
  • Keep a close eye on the vent termination, ensuring it is free of debris, ice, or snow.

As part of your annual boiler tune-up, a licensed, experienced member of the McAllister team will perform the following:

  • Inspection and cleaning of the boiler heat exchanger.
  • Inspection of the condensate system, cleaning and flushing when needed.
  • Test the operation and safety of controls.
  • Check the control settings.
  • Inspection and cleaning of the burner assembly, including the flame sensor and igniter.
  • Test the PH levels of water.
  • Test the air inlet and vent terminations to ensure they are unencumbered and clear.
  • Perform an inspection of the heating system to identify any problems.
  • Check all wiring and connections for signs of damage or deterioration.

Benefits of Routine Boiler Maintenance

Boilers are known for their steadfast reliability, ease of use, comfort, and quiet operation. Though they may last for a number of years without any issue, annual maintenance is still a must to ensure you get the most from your investment. Some of the many benefits of routine boiler maintenance, include:

  • Increased lifespan. During regular operation your boiler endures a certain amount of stress, and in the absence of routine maintenance may experience loose connections or corrosion that can shorten the lifespan of your equipment.
  • Decreased energy costs. If parts are worn or dirty, your boiler must work harder to supply your home with heat—driving up energy costs.
  • Greater efficiency. Parts that are operating at optimal levels use energy more efficiently and perform better overall.
  • Lower incidence of repairs. Routine, preventive maintenance can identify a number of issues while they are small and help avoid costly repairs down the road.
  • Warranty validation. Maintain the terms of your warranty with professional maintenance from the experts at McAllister.

Most Frequently Asked Questions

What is the SEER rating?

The SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) is how the efficiency of your heating and cooling equipment is measured. The SEER is the amount of cooling your system will deliver per dollar spent on electricity, as compared to other systems. For example, a 3-ton unit may have a SEER efficiency rating of 13, 14, or 15. The higher the SEER the more efficient the system will be. The SEER rating of any given unit can range anywhere from 13 to 21.

Each split system cooling unit has a nominal SEER rating. This rating can be increased with the upgrade of the same series indoor unit. The SEER rating of a system is derived based on the combination of equipment installed in the home. The outdoor equipment (heat pump or air conditioner), as well as the indoor equipment (evaporator coil and furnace, or air handler), play a vital role in the total rating.

Your heating and cooling systems work incredibly hard to perform their functions for your home everyday. The constant stopping, starting and continual operation can wear down any machine if the proper care and maintenance is delayed. However, by performing regular maintenance, you can maximize the lifecycle of your heating or cooling unit and guard against many common equipment failures. Preventive maintenance inspections performed on a regular basis can uncover leaks, rust, rot, soot, frayed wires and corroded electrical contacts that the naked eye may not notice. You should have maintenance done on your system regularly to ensure maximum efficiency and allow prevent possible problems that may occur in the near future.

To keep your equipment running efficiently and maximize the useful life of your system all equipment needs to have an annual tune-up. At least once a year heat pumps and air conditioners require a professional tune-up. Inspections on boiler and furnace systems should include ductwork, pipes, dampers, valves, the chimney, registers, radiators, pumps, blowers, fuel lines, the gas meter, oil tank and every part of the actual furnace and boiler. Meanwhile, heat pump and air conditioning unit inspections should also include inspections of the fan, compressor, indoor coils, outdoor coils, line kits and refrigerant lines.

Since they are electronic, programmable thermostats are more accurate and efficient than thermostats that contain mercury. With programmable thermostats you can control the temperature in your home at different times of day without ever touching your thermostat. Because everything is automatic, you will never forget to change the setting on your own. A WiFi enabled thermostat allows you to monitor and adjust your home’s heating and cooling system remotely, helping you reduce your heating and cooling costs.

Standard filters work to keep your system and its ductwork clean, but they don’t really improve indoor air quality. To do that you need a media filter. The media filter rests between the main return duct and the blower cabinet and will improve dust and particle removal by seven times that of a standard filter. However, upgrading to a pleated media filter will remove everything from insecticide dust to airborne viruses from the filtered air. Always choose a filter that matches your blower’s capacity. For optimum efficiency and filtration, McAllister… The Service Co. recommends that you replace your disposable filters at least once a month. If you have washable filters, they should be cleaned once a month.
