Atmospheric Boilers – Dangerous – TSSA Mandatory Annual Testing

by

If you own a boiler that vents up your chimney and is equipped with a draft hood, you must have it inspected by a licensed Gas Technician. The TSSA just renewed its mandatory annual testing requirement for this boiler. Even if your boiler was inspected last year, it must me re-inspected and a tag must be affixed to the boiler showing that it was tested. This year the TSSA added a worst case scenario depressurization test to the mandatory testing. The required test would cost from $300-$600 dollars. I would get rid of this potentially dangerous boiler and replace it with a Direct Vent Condensing Boiler.

See the TSSA Advisory below including a letter to homeowners describing the problem and a sample of the Tag that must be affixed to your boiler.
