Understanding Annual Boiler Service

The Importance of Annual Boiler Maintenance

Pro Ace Heating & Cooling Ltd. carries a legacy of great boiler service in Coquitlam. But mention the word “boiler” and many peopleʼs eyes glaze over. Regular folks donʼt want to bother with such mundane aspects of daily life as boilers and HVAC systems but it is important to take a few moments to read up on boiler maintenance.

What is a Furnace vs a Boiler?

Most Coquitlam homes are heated with either a furnace or a boiler. Furnaces heat air and distribute the heated air through the house using ducts. Boilers heat water and provide either hot water or steam for heating. Pro Ace Heating & Cooling Ltd. provides boiler service in all types of settings – both commercial and residential – with locations in Coquitlam and the greater Vancouver Area.

Minimizing heat loss

Expert boiler service is vital to maintain peak HVAC efficiency. Operating your boiler with just the right amount of air will minimize heat loss and improve combustion efficiency. Why waste heat? Thatʼs just money going up the stack. The experts at Pro Ace will ensure that your boiler is using just enough combustion air to burn all the fuel with little excess air. Not that you want to get rid of all excess air. Some is required to ensure complete combustion. The local Vancouver Area experts at Pro Ace Heating & Cooling Ltd. know just what amount is required.

Cleaning the boiler’s heat exchanger, yearly

Boiler service, including cleaning the boiler water side heat exchanger surfaces, translates into energy savings. Boiler service should be done at least once a year to ensure peak efficiency. Pro Ace Heating & Cooling Ltd. provides fast and efficient service to the entire Coquitlam area. Lesson learned.
