What Causes Boiler Problems?
Boiler problems are caused by a number of factors. Some of these factors are completely out of your control, such as the age of a boiler, but other factors can be prevented with conscientious choices.
Some common causes for boiler problems is the water within. This water is constantly heated, and so it tends to rust the walls of the boiler. Obviously the damage will be more extensive as the boiler gets older. Sometimes with the right combination of age and hot water, cracks can begin to form along the walls. Eventually this can lead to leaks and ruptures of the boiler.
Also, a lack of service for the unit will cause it to deteriorate faster. You must inspect your boiler to see if there are problems. Do not wait for a regular service appointment if you suspect trouble. Allowing problems to fester reduces the lifespan of the boiler.
How Often Should You Maintain Your Unit?
Your boiler must be serviced on a regular basis. You can have the boiler looked at semi-annually or quarterly. A routine service of the boiler includes the service technician checking every part of the boiler for trouble. Small parts can be replaced during the service, and the technician can highlight bigger problems that could be on the horizon.
A boiler in a school needs to be seen when the kids are not in school so it can be tested. Service technicians must go through a battery of tests to make sure your boiler works properly. Boilers in an office building must be serviced after business hours. The workers in the office cannot work comfortably while the boiler is being tested and is offline.

How Long Do Units Usually Last?
Boilers can last anywhere from 8 to 12 years. Usually this will depend on several factors, including the quality of the boiler, how well it’s taken care of and the environment it is in. You can help to extend the life of your boiler with regular service, along with using it in smart ways and not wasting its energy.
The boiler needs to be run on a regular schedule. If you turn on the boiler at the same temperature every day during the winter, the regular use of the boiler will not be overwhelming. Changing the temperature over and over will cause the boiler to be overworked. The boiler tends to break down faster when it’s treated like this.
Boilers must be treated with care so that your building can be heated comfortably every winter. If you invest in regular service and use the system wisely, you can keep your boiler running for far longer.
