Hoerner Guide to Home Boiler Cleaning and Inspection

When & How to do a Home Boiler Cleaning in Toronto


\Boiler Cleaning ScheduleMany Toronto homes are heated by radiators that provide circulating hot water - a boiler cleaning schedule can make it run more efficient. In order to keep the unit functioning as it should, it is important to maintain it regularly. If your radiator doesn't work as it should, you will find that it doesn't heat up your home as much as it used to, and some rooms may be cooler than others. Radiators that don't work as they should will waste heat by circulating the hot water back to the boiler without delivering heat to the home. Instead of turning the thermostat up higher than necessary, and adding unnecessary costs to your heating bill, consider maintenance instead.

How Radiators Work

Once heated by the boiler, water is circulated through the piping system to the radiators of your home. The indoor air is warmed through convection and radiation. In order for the radiator to work efficiently, air must be allowed to flow freely around and under each radiator. Over time, radiators may stop working because of faulty valves or air in piping systems. This will impede the efficiency of your radiator and can even stop the central heating system from working at all. Getting on a boiler cleaning schedule will create better efficiency with the operation of the entire system.. 


Schedule a Home Boiler Cleaning With Hoerner

Hoerner Heating and Plumbing recommends regular home boiler cleaning services and boiler maintenance. Don't wait for the freeze before scheduling your maintenance call - do it now. The best time for a boiler cleaning is in May or June, and no later than Fall.  Why? Hoerner Heating & Plumbing will do a combustion analysis, if the outdoor temperature is hot, the boiler combustion analysis may not test properly. But waiting too long is not good either - you don't want to hit the winter rush without your heating system in good working order.


We recommend that homeowners call for boiler cleaning during spring, when the temperature is below 15 degrees Celsius. Ideally, boiler cleaning should be done during May or June. When the temperature is below 15 degrees Celcius, we can do an accurate combustion analysis.


We recommend Home Boiler Cleanings, or at least an inspection once a year before the heating season commences. Ideally, your boiler should be cleaned once a year.
