Does Your Boiler Need a Tune-Up? How To Tell.

Winter is in full swing here in the Waterford, Michigan area. It’s definitely not the time to be without heat. Regardless of the type of heating system you have in your home, regular maintenance and boiler tune ups are necessary to keep the equipment operating properly and efficiently. 

Nighttime lows will be well below freezing well into March. It’s not too late for heating maintenance, including your residential boiler. Call Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing today to schedule an appointment


Annual maintenance is recommended by HVAC experts. Most boiler manufacturers also recommend yearly inspections and cleanings to keep warranties valid and to ensure your boiler is always ready when needed. By having a trained technician inspect and clean your boiler, or any heating system, you provide opportunities to find broken or malfunctioning parts and repair them before the boiler is needed.

Being proactive to catch potential issues is always better than having to handle a boiler breakdown in the middle of the night. 


  • The most obvious sign that your boiler needs attention is you have no heat. Call Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing for 24/7 emergency service.
  • If you notice any odd odors or if your carbon monoxide detector is beeping, turn the boiler off and contact Kotz right away. 
  • Under normal conditions, your boiler should operate with little sound. If you hear loud or unusual noises coming from your boiler while it’s running or when it first engages, it’s best to have it professionally checked. 
  • Significant energy costs are a good indicator that your boiler needs maintained. A tuned up boiler will run efficiently and provide the greatest efficiencies. 

Your home is probably the most valuable resource you own, and its purpose is to provide a place of safety and comfort for your family. Within your home, the HVAC system is likely the most expensive and used equipment you have. Take care of your investments and your loved ones by having your boiler cleaned and inspected every year.
