In recent decades, the profession of plumber and central heating engineer has fallen apart. In the past, it was a limited set of knowledge and comparable techniques that you needed to practice both professions. Nowadays, every field requires its own specific knowledge.
A heating specialist is now exclusively concerned with central heating boilers and their installation, maintenance, troubleshooting and central heating tuning. Most boilers in consumers' homes have a capacity of 40 kW. But in principle every central heating boiler, including industrial boilers and boilers for large buildings and homeowners' associations, works in the same way.
Our professionals are specialized in properly maintaining central heating boilers and solving central heating boiler problems. Plumbers used to do this job too. Nowadays you hire a certified installer to maintain your boiler. We are also happy to help you if you are looking for a professional for a central heating installation. If you prefer to get started yourself first, read the boiler service and maintenance blog. There you can read what you can do yourself to maintain your boiler.
Central heating boiler maintenance by a technician
What does a technician do during boiler maintenance?
- Cleaning the combustion parts
- Bleeding radiators
- Replace gaskets
- Pressurize system
- Adjust gas/air mixture
- Checking (wear) parts
- Preventively replace parts
- Check for leaks
Cleaning the combustion parts and ensuring the correct gas and air mixture in particular are activities that make the boiler a lot more economical. A boiler maintenance service quickly pays for itself. An average family pays around 800 to 1200 euros per year on its gas bill. A heating expert can put a positive spin on this if he carries out maintenance on your central heating boiler. In addition, regular maintenance extends the life of the boiler and reduces the risk of malfunctions.

Until the temperature outside starts to drop and drops below 10 degrees in the evening. When heating starts, we see a peak in central heating boiler malfunction job requests.
When you start the boilers again after a long time, the following happens: The three-way valve, the pump and other mechanical parts that have been standing still for months start moving again. That is the moment when disruptions occur. The central heating circuit is a separate circuit from the hot water. There is already pressure on the water for the taps as standard. The mechanic doesn't have to do anything about that. But the heating circuit is a different story. A pump is needed for that.
