There should be a pressure gauge on your boiler check this when you start the boiler for the season. Also take a look at it at least once every month whenever the boiler is in operation. Your boiler manual should tell you what the pressure should be if the boiler pressure is different you may need boiler maintenance. It is a good idea to check your boiler every month when it is in operation. All you’ll need to do is check the pressure and look at the boiler itself. Look for leaks, and damage just like you would when you check the boiler in the fall. If you see any leaks, damage or cracks, shut the boiler down and call for maintenance.
Keep the Boiler Clear
Always keep the area around the boiler clear when it is in operation. Never store anything that could melt or catch fire close to the boiler because of the fire hazard. Make sure furniture, papers, appliances, paint, aerosol cans, gasoline and other such items are kept as far back from the boiler as possible. You should keep the boiler clear so you can get a good look at it when you’re inspecting it. In particular you should be able to get to the gauge and the pilot light. You’ll want to be able to get to the boiler quickly in case there is an emergency.
