In the combustion industry, safety standards are king. It’s paramount to keep your combustion equipment, burners, furnaces, and the like working like clockwork, with annual testing, inspection, and repair. At Metro Services, Inc., we work hard to provide support and solutions for NFPA compliance, safety surveys, and equipment maintenance. Below are our top 3 key reasons why you should stay on top of the testing of burners and other equipment.

1) Maximize Efficiency, Decrease Downtime

A well-thought out preventative maintenance plan contributes to a properly functioning factory by decreasing potential downtime. When you stay on top of inspections, testing, and adjusting elements when necessary, you consequently alleviate the potential for issues that can be costly, interruptive, and even dangerous.

2) Safety

Preventative maintenance also serves to keep your staff and facility safe from potential harm. Of course you have to operate under the NFPA article 86 guidelines, and our team can help you effectively navigate what that should look like for your specific business.

3) The Environment

Combustion equipment that operates efficiently isn’t only great for your bottomline; it’s also better for the environment, in that less fuel is required, and fuel is converted to BTUs more efficiently for even more savings.
