Boiler Operational Safety Check

When we arrive at the home we first talk to the customers and listen to any concerns that they have about the equipment to give us a good idea of how the unit has been working recently.  After that we go through a Twenty Point operational safety check check list:

  • We visually check the equipment for any major safety concerns
  • We look for signs of improper combustion at the burners, heat exchanger and flue pipe
  • We check the pumps and motors and oil them if necessary
  • We check the boiler gauge to be sure its reading the proper temperature and pressure
  • We check the expansion tank
  • We check the auto fill valve
  • We check the safety relief valve
  • We cycle all the zones and thermostats
  • We check the Aquastat
  • We check for gas leaks
  • We check the igniter or pilot
  • We check for the proper ignition of all the burners
  • We check for proper flame composition
  • We check the flue gasses for safe CO, CO2 and O2 levels
  • We check for proper vent drafting
  • We check the return and supply water temperatures
  • We check the limit switches
  • We check for the proper sequence of operation
  • We check the gas control valve
  • We check the ambient CO levels in the house
