Scale build up. Your boiler’s worst nightmare
When neglected scale can build up within the hydronics system. This scale acts as an insulator and restricts heat transfer. This results in reduced efficiency and forces your boiler to run longer and harder to heat your home.
Another major problem is that oxygen can enter the system and start corroding your piping and water valves. This can lead to seized water valves or worse yet, burst pipes.
That’s why we stress the importance of getting your boiler maintained to greatly increase its lifespan and prevent maintenance-sensitive components from breaking or rotting out.
