You need to service your boiler every 1 to 2 years in most states, especially since many boilers run on natural gas that can leak from pipes that aren't well-maintained.

A complete boiler inspection should check all the following:

  • Full combustion analysis to assess the boiler's efficiency
  • Carbon-monoxide leak tests
  • Testing all electrical connections and thermostat wiring
  • Examining all burners, valves, and exhaust vents
  • Checking the radiators and all connected piping
