How to maintain heating systems effectively


Regular maintenance of your heating and hot water system helps you maximise its efficiency, improve workplace safety and extend the lifespan of your system.

Heating system maintenance

Professional servicing and maintenance checks on your heating system should cover:

  • combustion efficiency
  • running repairs
  • limescale checks
  • advice to owners
  • replacing worn or defective parts, such as boilers, water heaters, pumps and air heaters

You can carry out regular simple maintenance checks, such as:

  • setting outlet louvres correctly for warm-air systems
  • cleaning reflectors for radiant heaters
  • keeping air vents clean
  • checking for leaks

You should also monitor gas flues for efficiency, temperature and chimney conditions.
