Fireside Boiler Cleaning
Over time the fireside of the boiler can clog with soot from fuel combustion inside the tubes. If the soot build is not addressed it results in more frequent cycling of motor, blower, and other heating system components which can lead to costly repairs and replacement of these parts. In addition, because soot has five time the insulating value of asbestos, it inhibits the transfer of heat which leads higher fuel consumption. A Department of Energy report on hospital boiler cleaning noted that “As Little as one-eight inch of soot can decrease boiler efficiency by as much as 8 percent.”
