Boiler Maintenance

Having a fully working boiler that provides you with hot water and heating is essential. Having your boiler serviced on an annual basis will make sure that your boiler is running properly, and any small issues are dealt with before they become bigger problems.  Many companies tend to focus solely on immediate issues that arise – repairing or replacing parts when something goes wrong and reacting to urgent matters. While reactive maintenance is necessary in certain situations, transitioning to preventive maintenance is a strategy that will save both time and money, as well as help operations to run more smoothly.

Cost

Emergency repairs are more costly than performing preventive maintenance on your boiler. Damages to your facility and equipment can be a result of an improperly maintained boiler and pipes. Your final repair bill would be higher compared to the cost of simply maintaining your boiler.

Dangers

If your boiler, and therefore your heating system, run off gas or oil, any fault that it develops has the potential to give off carbon monoxide. Known as the silent killer, carbon monoxide is both odorless and tasteless which make it very difficult to detect. It only takes a very short time for carbon monoxide to take its hold and inhaling the gas can result in either a coma or death. Faulty heating is linked to the deaths of around 50 people each year caused by carbon monoxide poisoning.

Electrical & Mechanical Preventive Maintenance

Your boiler shouldn’t be the only piece of equipment that receives maintenance on a regular basis. Many electrical & mechanical systems require maintenance to keep your facility running. Preventive maintenance is not about fixing problems. Its focus is on preventing those problems from happening in the first place. It includes activities such as cleaning, lubrication, adjustments, repairs, and parts replacement. Each of these activities is performed to keep equipment running in top condition and to prevent downtime and reactive fixes.

Electrical Preventive Maintenance

Two weeks ago, we discussed the importance of preventive maintenance. Preventive Maintenance is also extremely necessary for electrical equipment. A great deal can go wrong if an electrical system is not adequately maintained. As electrical loads cycle between high and low demand, thermal expansion and contraction cause connections to loosen. Electrical panels that are never cleaned accumulate dust and dirt that deposit on these connections. The loose and dirty connections provide a high resistance path that are directly responsible for more than 30 percent of electrical failures. Another 17 percent of electrical failures are attributed to live electrical components being exposed to moisture. With a comprehensive electrical preventive maintenance program, both conditions — which account for almost half of all electrical losses — can be corrected.

With the failure rate of electrical equipment being 3 times higher for components that are not included in a scheduled preventive maintenance program, the benefits are hard to argue. We can plan maintenance in coordination with scheduled shutdowns to reduce downtime. Our electrical team is continuously trained and keep up to date on electrical codes and regulations.

We pride ourselves on removing the barriers that come with hiring multiple contractors. With all our trades under one roof, we control every aspect of your next project, saving you time and money.
