The service of heating systems, like the maintenance of a car, should in no case be ignored for several reasons:

  • safety – this is especially true for gas systems, but it is also relevant in the case of others – malfunctions in the heating system can lead to many unpleasant, and often even dangerous consequences.

  • warranty – each manufacturer provides certain conditions for regular service maintenance for their equipment. If the deadlines are violated, the warranty for the device stops working.

When to carry out maintenance of heating systems, as well as what problems can occur if timely service is ignored, we describe further.

Types of service

Seasonal service

​Seasonal service means maintenance of the system before and after the heating season. It implies carrying out general diagnostics, switching operating modes, standard checking of components, replacing small consumables, system charging, checking expansion tanks, etc.

Full service

​It is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, it involves the overhaul of all elements of the system, the planned replacement of worn-out components, the cleaning of lines and heat exchangers (if necessary).

TROX double slot inline diffuser

Double-slot diffusers from the TROX brand are designed for high-quality air distribution throughout the room. They combine visual aesthetics and high technical potential. Air currents are given in different directions, evenly scattering and avoiding any drafts. Outwardly, only laconic lines on the ceiling remain visible.

Duct air conditioner Daikin FDXM 35F

A low-pressure internal duct unit Daikin FDXM 35F is installed in the ceiling space of the bathroom - it works to cool the bedroom. It is accessed through hatches. The capacity of the air conditioner is enough to service rooms up to 35 m2, which is optimal for a given room. The lowering of the ceiling in a technical room was 300 mm.

Indirect heating boiler Drazice

Vertical indirect heating boiler Drazice OKSE 200 l is designed to provide apartment residents with hot water. The inner surface of the tank is covered with high-quality enamel without nickel, which ensures a long operation of the water heater, and there is also an anti-corrosion coating. The temperature inside can be kept between 7 and 77 ℃. The water heating indicator always shows the current temperature on the front of the tank. There is a fast heating function. This is an excellent solution for an apartment, allowing you not to depend on seasonal blackouts and other inconveniences.

Electric boiler Vaillant Ecoblock

What is included in the maintenance of the heating system?

Maintenance of the heating system in a private house includes:

  • inspection and testing of the heat source (electric boiler, solid fuel boiler or heat pump), as well as all its elements (according to technical specifications and manufacturer's recommendations);

  • checking the pressure in the expansion tank;

  • assessment of the operation of the DHW tank and its elements;

  • cleaning of components (bleed valves, mud collectors, etc.) and replacement - if necessary;

  • flushing of pipes;

  • switching of the heating boiler or heat pump to the "summer" / "winter" mode of operation - at the request of the client.

Turning to us, you get a comprehensive service for the entire system with detailed information about the results of the check in the service book of the facility.

When is the best time to service your heating system?

The heating system should be serviced at least once a year. A seasonal inspection is also recommended. In spring, it means switching the boiler (if it has a hot water circuit) or heat pump to summer mode - only for supplying hot water, and in autumn - activating the winter mode - heating water for the heating system and hot water supply.

Repair of individual elements of the system and flushing of pipes is desirable to carry out as part of regular maintenance, and a comprehensive inspection can be carried out when preparing the system for the heating season, that is, in the autumn - this is the best option.

How to maintain heating system of a private house?

Engineering communications are a whole range of equipment, the correct functioning of which depends on the availability of heat, hot water and other benefits in your home. It is strictly not recommended to intervene into their work without special knowledge. That is why qualified specialists should handle the maintenance of heating systems in private homes in Kyiv and other cities and towns.

However, there is a list of what you can do - visually inspect the system, evaluate the operation of automation, clean the in-floor convector (while the engine must be reliably protected!), if necessary, clean the mechanical filters.

Repairing equipment on your own or changing components is highly discouraged. If you service the system yourself, you lose the warranty from the manufacturer, and risk your safety.

Entrust the maintenance of heating to Alter Air specialists - we will carry out high-quality diagnostics of the system, check the performance of all its elements, inspect each radiator and in-floor convector, check the pipes and flush them.

After carrying out service work, we provide the owners of residential buildings with a report on the status of all elements of the system and draw up a schedule for subsequent visits.

Why it is better to contact professionals 

Alter Air specialists have been performing the entire range of work on the design, installation, and maintenance of heating systems for 13 years.

Long-term expertise allows us to provide our customers with high-quality service of heating systems within the framework of warranty and post-warranty service, as well as in emergencies when problems with equipment are detected.

We record the results of regular maintenance in a service book, which every owner of a private house should have. It contains all the information on the condition of the system and its individual elements, information about the defects and breakdowns found, as well as data on their elimination or replacement of equipment.

Thanks to our professionals, you can be sure of the safety and serviceability of your heating system, as well as insured against the risks of emergencies.
