Annual Boiler Tune-Ups throughout Southeast Wisconsin
Some Wisconsin homeowners don’t realize how important it is to have their home’s boiler system inspected and tuned up annually, but it’s crucial to do so to keep your unit functioning at peak performance.
The truth is that boilers lose efficiency as they age. Without regular maintenance appointments, they can end up costing you more on utility bills and eventually cease to work at all. Annual tune-ups can also catch developing problems early on to save you the cost of a boiler repair or replacement.
Capital Heating & Cooling works on all types of boilers, offers multiple Annual Maintenance Plans, and stands behind all our work with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

How Much Does Boiler Maintenance Cost?
Boiler maintenance costs vary depending on the type of unit you have. On average, you can expect to pay a few hundred dollars for a thorough tune-up and inspection by a qualified HVAC professional. Additionally, high-efficiency boiler maintenance tends to be more expensive, but the cost savings on monthly energy bills more than offset the maintenance cost.
During your tune-up, our technicians are specifically trained to identify parts of your boiler that may be close to failure so they can take care of these issues before they cause a system breakdown. The cost of repairs is not included in your tune-up, but if you have a Capital Heating Maintenance Plan, you will receive preferred pricing on repairs and new equipment installation!
Do-It-Yourself Boiler Maintenance Tips for Homeowners in the Greater Milwaukee Area
Due to the very high pressures and water temperatures involved when it comes to boilers, there are only a few things Capital Heating & Cooling approves of doing yourself. The rest should be left to a boiler maintenance expert who specializes in working on high-pressure boiler systems—otherwise, one wrong turn of a valve could be deadly.
Below are some checkpoints addressed during every boiler tune-up, including some things you can do yourself in between routine maintenance or calling for an emergency boiler repair.
What to Do
Why It Matters
Inspect vents & flues
|Blocked air vents prevent your boiler from working efficiently, particularly if you have a gas boiler. If you find a blockage in your vents or flues, clear it to allow air to flow freely.|
Check the pilot light
|If it’s not lit, or if it’s burning yellow or orange, safety systems will prevent the main burner from igniting.|
Look for water leaks
|If you see water on the floor, it’s likely from a leaky boiler heat exchanger. This usually indicates that adjustments or part replacements are needed in your boiler system.|
Clear out the boiler area
|Furniture, boxes, papers, and other items near your unit can melt and represent a fire hazard. Move them away to keep your boiler and home safe.|
Check the circuit breaker
|Has the fuse or circuit-breaker blown or tripped? Even a gas boiler needs electricity to fire up.|
Adjust the thermostat
|If your thermostat has been reset to a very low temperature, it may not be instructing the boiler to ignite and warm your home.|
A damaged boiler should never be used, so if you find anything unusual when performing the tasks above, contact our team of HVAC professionals right away. Our team of professional heating specialists is available 24 hours a day for boiler repair services, so be sure to call them in case of an emergency!

Benefits of Boiler Maintenance Plans for Your Wisconsin Home
When you have a boiler installed, it’s imperative to have annual maintenance performed—in fact, it’s actually required to keep your warranty active. Boiler equipment manufacturers like Burnham, Weil-McClain, Crown, and more require you to have an annual tune-up performed by a licensed and certified HVAC company like Capital Heating & Cooling.
Scheduling regular tune-ups results in tons of benefits for Wisconsin homeowners. For instance, your boiler will last longer, will use less energy and therefore decrease your utility bills, and will be less likely to experience a breakdown that will require costly repairs.
