High Mark Plumbing is ready to help with your boiler service in Calgary. As winter approaches, now is a good time to check your boiler to make sure that it is performing correctly. Modern boilers that are connected to heat pumps are remarkably efficient, delivering the radiant heat that is so much more satisfying than forced air heat.
There are several things to check on your boiler before winter becomes established. One of the big ones is to look for leaks. That might include water pipe leaks where the cold water comes into the boiler, or it might include steam leaks as the heated vapor leaves the boiler and enters the delivery pipes. Steam leaks can cause walls to decay, wallpaper to fall off, and wood to warp. If we can catch those leaks early, we can help minimize any damage. Other areas included in a boiler service are to flush out the tank, check for mineral deposits or acid erosion of the interior, as well as to check valves, safety plugs and the thermostat. Depending upon the type of boiler, it is a good idea to check on the system for heating the water and evaluate whether it is working correctly.

Better safe than sorry, there are some repairs that just won’t wait for Monday – and we can help with that.
