Boiler Service or Replacement? That is the question.

The key to running an energy efficient heating system is maintenance.

Whether it be domestic or commercial, boilers should be serviced annually. And if the heating system is older than 15 years, it may be time for a brand new boiler.

At 361 Degrees we have designed and installed a range of heating systems for many commercial buildings, some of which being schools. The heating systems we supply can have a long life span. However, you must be diligent with your service and maintenance schedule to prolong the life of the boilers installed.

For commercial boilers they should be situated in a spacious room, away from clutter to ensure plenty of ventilation. If you notice any leaks, cracks, unusual noises or black sooty marks, it’s advised you have an experienced engineer take a look. Regular maintenance will not only save you money in the long run but could also save lives as a faulty boiler can be fatal.

A faulty boiler can produce carbon monoxide, which is gas that you can’t see, smell or taste. Carbon monoxide can kill, which is why regular check-ups are needed to ensure your safety.

Top Tip

Boilers can seize up if they are not used regularly. That is why it is recommended that a service be scheduled for mid-summer or September to prepare for the winter months ahead.

Education sector

Many schools use the time during the school holidays to schedule a free site survey which 361 Degrees are happy to oblige, at no extra cost. Although we understand there are times when a service or a new heating system needs to occur during term time, and for this we can assemble new boilers off site to decrease the level of disruption.

Our site surveys measure the energy efficiency of your current heating system, upon which our engineers will discuss with you the best options for your school. The solution could be a brand new boiler or a plan to manage and maintain your existing one.

We also apply a quote price promise which means there are no extra costs once the project has been contracted. At 361 Degrees we believe in honesty and integrity, we want to deliver the best solution for your establishment and be only a phone call away if you need us.
