It’s winter and your commercial boiler systems are operating at full capacity. To stay in great working order throughout the season, they need to be maintained, inspected and repaired when necessary. Here’s the essential commercial boiler maintenance checklist from commercial HVAC contractors in NJ.

Increase the Lifespan of Commercial Boiler Systems Through Regular Maintenance

States and municipalities require boiler inspections as part of health and safety regulations, but it’s important for facilities managers to do more than the minimum to keep this equipment in good working condition. In addition to legally mandated requirements, there should be a regular, comprehensive equipment inspection and testing program, including an annual inspection of all fire and water-side surfaces, inspection of refractory surfaces, and removal of scale, corrosion and mud.

These inspections and maintenance protocols are a cost-effective means to extending the lifespan of this equipment, minimizing repairs and saving on energy costs.

A Basic Commercial Boiler Systems Checklist

To help maintain your equipment and minimize downtime, you should:

  • Examine the boiler system for code compliance once a year
  • Test the operation of the boiler’s control system over a range of loads
  • Inspect and test all safety valves, interlocks and systems to ensure they are working properly
  • Test all shutoff valves once a year and check for leaks/improper closure issues
  • Check the interior surfaces of the boiler for localized overheating, erosion, and corrosion.
  • Check the fuel system regularly for leaks
  • Check the water treatment system to ensure water quality consistency
  • Maintain your boiler log and monitor data for slow-occurring issues

For large-scale boiler systems, depending on the load they serve, these inspections may have to be done more frequently – even on a daily basis.
