The Importance of Boiler Maintenance

The Importance of Boiler Maintenance

Boiler maintenance is essential for any homeowner, especially before the winter rolls around. Tune-up appointments ensure that your boiler is running safely and effectively when you need it most. A well-maintained boiler can save you money on your energy bills, extend the life of your system, and reduce the risk of costly repairs. When you need boiler tuning up & maintenance in Kirkland, call North Sound Boilers & Radiant right away. 

What To Expect 

One of the best things you can do to maintain your boiler is to schedule regular tune-ups. During a tune-up appointment, a professional technician will inspect and clean your system, check all safety devices, and make any necessary adjustments. This will help you identify and fix any potential issues before they become major problems.

Common Boiler Issues 

Some common issues that can arise with boilers include:

Dirty or clogged burners

If the burners in your boiler are dirty or clogged, it can cause the system to work harder, promoting excessive wear and tear. Regular maintenance can help prevent this issue.


Boilers can develop leaks over time, which can lead to costly repairs. A tune-up can help detect and fix any leaks before they become a bigger problem.

Failed ignition

If the ignition in your boiler is not working properly, it can cause the system to shut down and require repairs. Your technician will be able to catch this during a tune-up visit. 

Low water pressure

If the water pressure in your boiler is too low, it can cause the system to shut down or run less efficiently. 

Additional Benefits of Boiler Maintenance 

In addition to these common issues, regular maintenance can also help improve the overall condition of your boiler. A well-maintained system will use less energy, which can result in lower monthly costs. 

Schedule an Appointment 

To ensure that your boiler is running smoothly and efficiently, it is important to schedule regular tune-ups and maintenance. Don’t wait until there is a problem to take action. By proactively maintaining your boiler, you can save money, extend the life of your system, and avoid costly repairs.

We Love Our Customers!

Professional, responsive, informed, courteous. HIGHLY recommend
We were very pleased with the work David did on our boiler system. He was extremely knowledgeable about our boiler and radiators and that gave me confidence the repair would be done properly, which it was. He is very pleasant to work with and responds promptly to any inquiries which is unusual these days. His pricing was reasonable and fair and there was no attempt to talk me into more services than were necessary. It was a true pleasure to work with North Sound and we plan to have all our future maintenance/repair work with them. I highly recommend this company and David, I do not think you could find a better company and person for your heating needs.
We had a woefully undersized and antiquated system that was costing a fortune to maintain. We contacted David with North Sound Boilers and the next day we developed a very well-thought out plan. David is a self-professed radiant system nerd and is happy to speak boilers until the sun goes down. We learned much, had a quick turn-around and are reaping the benefits of a brilliant new system which addresses all our heating issues. Competitively-priced, timely, honest and communicative - what more can you ask for? If you're looking for a company which prides itself in its professionalism and work, look no further. Highly recommended!
David has a very good understanding of boilers and radiant floor heating systems work, and how to repair them.
David was awesome, prompt and professional. Removed our old boiler and installed new tankless combi boiler in minimal time. The whole time he was working, he was very open with everything he was doing, took time to answer questions and concerns, and he was very neat. No mess to clean up after he left and no unforeseen charges when he was done.
David from Northsound Boilers couldn’t have been nicer. On time, knew everything there was to know about my 30 year old boiler heating system. Diagnosed and repaired the system quickly, neatly and properly. Had it up and running in no time. It ran so well he advised us to hold off on further updates and stay in contact through the winter. He could have easily proceeded to further update the system with an expensive repair. I feel like we struck gold with David. An HONEST MAN!! Couldn’t be happier.
I was referred to David to install a combustion blower for my gas water heater which had failed. I was impressed with his professionalism and quality of service, from picking up the phone personally on my very first call to confirming the appointment the evening prior. He performed the repair impeccably and provided general orientation as to the maintenance of the water heater and hydronic heating system. Highly recommended.
We hired North Sound Boilers and Radiant to install a radiant heating system in our new home. We’re very happy with their service. The system is extremely efficient. Dave was great to work with. He listened to our needs and kept us within budget. We definitely recommend this company.
David came quick to solve my water heater failure. The day after my call he showed up to fix the problem and the next day we had hot water for the weekend. Plus he corrected other issues with my hydroponics floor heating two weeks later. Use this company, you will not be disappointed.
