Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it important to regularly maintain boilers?2022-10-19T21:06:23-06:00

Ensuring the burners and heat exchangers are in good working order is essential for the safe and efficient operation of your boilers. Over time, products of combustion can build up, obstructing burner ports, the exchanger, and venting. Something else to keep in mind is the quality of the water/glycol in your heating system. If left unchecked, the water may become acidic or turn into sludge which can lead to catastrophic circumstances for your entire heating system.

How often do boilers require repairs?2022-10-19T21:07:21-06:00

A certified technician should perform routine boiler maintenance once a year. It can be easy to forget about routine maintenance, but missing your regular inspections can lead to problems. 180 Plumbing & Heating has a solution to help you maintain your appliances with no extra effort on your part.

When is the best time to get your boiler repaired?2022-10-19T21:11:44-06:00

In Calgary, the optimal time for homeowners and business owners to get their boilers inspected and repaired is before, or at the beginning of the heating season. In Alberta, this is typically from August to October, before the weather turns cold. If you wait until a breakdown to get your boiler serviced, you risk having heating problems at the coldest time of the year.

What are the indicators that a boiler needs repairs?2022-10-19T21:13:13-06:00

There are many signs that indicate your boiler may require servicing. It’s a good idea to check on your appliances as part of a regular routine and monitor for any of these issues that are indicators that it’s time to schedule a repair:

  1. Cold home or business: If your home or business takes a long time to heat up, or stops warming up entirely, it’s time for an inspection right away to get the boiler back in operation.
  2. Leaks: Any water or other chemicals leaking from your boiler is a sure sign that the appliance needs to be tuned up. Improper installations or excessive wear can cause leaks over time, a thorough inspection to determine the cause is recommended. 
  3. Loud Noises: Boilers typically operate relatively quietly. Frequent banging or whirring noises can be a sign that a pump or fan needs to be replaced. Whistling or gurgling noises could indicate that the water pressure is too low, or it might be a sign of kettling. This is when particles become trapped in the boiler and can lead to malfunctions.
  4. Unusual smells: A faint unpleasant scent is a common indicator of a carbon monoxide leak. A carbon monoxide leak compromises your boiler and poses a serious health risk. Anyone inside the building should be evacuated if your boiler is emitting carbon monoxide.
  5. Higher heating bills: Your heating costs may creep up over time with an inefficient boiler. Scheduling a visit with the 180 Plumbing & Heating team is a good place to start. If your boiler is older than 15 years, replacing it with a newer, more energy-efficient boiler will help you reduce your heating expenses.

I hired Desmond to locate and repair a major water leak at our newly purchased townhouse in Palliser. Desmond was punctual, quickly located the problem and sent me an accurate quote for the repair cost. The repair was done perfectly and for the price quoted. He even found time to properly level the toilet and clean out the shower drain at no extra cost. Oustanding service!
