The winter season is about to end. After the winter season is finished, the indoor heating system of the majority of users will also enter the maintenance period. In this regard,  Heating Repairs warmly reminds the majority of heating system users and citizens to take appropriate maintenance measures to extend the service life of indoor heating facilities.

After Winter, how to maintain the heating facilities in the home?

1. Pipes in the old heating system need to be renovated:

Due to the long service life of pipes in the old district heating network, the pipe network is severely damaged, and some pipes are subject to sewage erosion all year round. In recent years, pipe ruptures have occurred frequently during heating. In the case of pipe ruptures, the property company will have to stop heating. Maintenance, which results in long-term and large-scale heating shutdown, seriously affects the heating quality of residential heat users, and even leads to personal and property losses. The impact is terrible. Therefore, after the end of the heating period, the thermal users of the old community should actively dock with the staff of the community property company and the owner committee to plan and strive to advance the second grid reconstruction project of the community in summer to ensure the heating quality in winter so that every A thermal user spends a warm and comfortable winter in the coming heating period

2. Do the water supply and return pipe valves in the home be closed after finishing winters?

Once the winter is over, the user should close the main valves of the water supply and return pipes in the home in time to prevent leakage during the next year’s water test and pressure test in the community.

3. Geothermal heating users need to do maintenance

Geothermal users should ask professional maintenance personnel to disassemble the decontamination device on the water separator, clean the filter screen, and, if necessary, perform comprehensive cleaning of the geothermal pipeline. Under normal circumstances, the geothermal cleaning cycle is 2 to 3 years.

4. Don’t disassemble the radiator and drain water without permission

In the past years, the heating season ended, and residents often discharged surplus water from heating radiators or dismantled heating pipes. However, the heating water is specially treated. It has been kept in the system to effectively isolate the air from corrosion of the radiators and pipes, which can prolong the service life of the heaters and pipes. Therefore, it is best not to disassemble the heating users after heating is stopped. Radiator, do not let the water in radiators and pipes.

5. Inspect the pipe joints for looseness or water leakage

For most users, they should try their best to keep the original state after winter is over and check for water leakage before the start of the next heating season. However, residents need to pay attention to check whether the various joints are loose. If there is water leakage, please contact professionals for repair.
