Annual Boiler Tunes in Fairbanks, Alaska

Boilers are an essential piece of equipment for any home in a cold climate, especially in Alaska. To keep your boiler in top shape and fully functional, you should be getting regular annual tune-ups. This routine maintenance helps clean and check all boiler components to verify your system is working properly and is safe to use in your home.

We do everything that we can for our customers to make sure that they get the most out of their boiler or furnace and aren’t paying too much for repairs. Part of that is encouraging preventative maintenance. With annual boiler tunes, you will need fewer emergency repair services, and your boiler will last a lot longer than if you never have it serviced.

Prospector Plumbing and Heating is the best choice for boiler tune-ups in Fairbanks, AK.

What Is a Boiler Tune?

Simply put, a boiler tune is a “tune-up” where a professional boiler technician will come to inspect your boiler and perform some maintenance on it. A boiler tune usually involves an inspection, cleaning, and repairs, if needed.

During a boiler tune, the plumber will check that everything with your boiler is functioning and ensure that your home is ready for the next winter season. These boiler tunes are the best way to clean, maintain, and understand the quality and status of your boiler.

Annual boiler tunes are the best way to make sure you are properly maintaining your home heating system. These regular preventative maintenance services help to make sure your heating system is tuned up and working efficiently.


What We Do During an Annual Boiler Tune

We recommend getting your boiler tuned once per year, either right after or right before the winter season. We don’t recommend having your boiler tuned in the middle of the winter when it needs to work hard to heat your home. Yearly boiler tunes allow your home to be perfectly warm and comfortable for the entire winter with no interruptions for additional inspections or repairs.
During an annual boiler tune, our technicians check every aspect of the boiler to make sure it is working, clean every component, and make any immediate repairs. During the tune-up, we:
During the tune-up, our plumbers carefully clean each component, and if any parts seem to be close to needing a repair, the technician repairs them on site. Once our annual boiler tune is complete, you can be confident that you will be comfortable at home for the following winter.

Importance of Annual Boiler Tunes

As we have said, annual boiler tunes are an essential part of preventative maintenance for your home heating system. Regular maintenance and cleaning through annual tunes help to prolong the life of your boiler and increase efficiency.

Without annual tunes and boiler maintenance, you run the risk of your boiler breaking during the winter months. This issue is not only uncomfortable and a pain to deal with, but it can be dangerous if the cold winter temperatures of Fairbanks, AK, reach the inside of your home.

Since boilers and furnaces are heated with gas, the technician must check all connections to ensure there isn’t a gas leak. Gas leakage is the most significant safety concern when dealing with boilers and furnaces. Additionally, gas connections that aren’t entirely secured may lead to inefficient heating.

Apart from keeping you and your family safe, annual boiler tunes from Prospector Plumbing and Heating have many other positive effects. Annual boiler tunes help to:

Annual boiler tunes are a fast, painless way to make your life easier. The cost of an annual boiler tune is much less than what you would spend if you needed an emergency repair in the middle of winter. Plus, you can schedule it on your own time. Our annual boiler tunes help you get through the winter without even thinking or worrying about your boiler.

Service provided was boiler tuneup and maintenance. Professional quality service all around. Jared, our technician, was courteous and very detailed with his work. He also took his time to discuss and explain things and offered options. Company is responsive, with courteous communication. One thing to note is, you’re gonna pay for what you get. Service, parts and labor are very pricey!

Save your wallet and don’t use this company. I’ve used this company in the past, and they were great and fair, but my last repair was an absolute horrible experience.I had a problem with the furnace at my rental property not producing heat, so I called this company. They showed up promptly and their tech assessed the problem, and told me I needed to have certain parts replaced. Now I wasn’t at my rental property at the time to confirm the issue, I simply relied on their technician’s advice.Hours later, the tech had his parts and did the repair… only to realize what he thought was the problem, was not in fact the problem, MY NEST THERMOSTAT WAS DEAD THE WHOLE TIME! The tech then realized that was something he should’ve checked from the beginning and apologized for his inaccurate diagnostic, and left. I then had to charge my Nest thermostat and my furnace started producing heat!!!Now this company is attempting to charge me $952, FOR MY THERMOSTAT BEING DEAD! The tech that came to my home is clearly incompetent, as if he knew how to do his job correctly, the thermostat (of which was located directly above his head at the furnace) would have been checked before anything else.Now the manager is being completely unreasonable with adjusting my invoice to reflect what work SHOULD HAVE been done (a call out fee and parts) and also will not give me a breakdown of the charges for the work performed, just a total, and is continuously harassing myself and my husband for full payment.This should company understand that what they are doing is not right, and they need to make it right. Do yourself a favor and call a company that actually cares about their customers and has technicians that actually do their job correctly from the beginning.

I would recommend Prospector Plumbing and Heating. I cannot begin to describe how amazing this company is! My boiler completely shut off and blew soot EVERYWHERE in my house. The technician Ryland Ellis was prompt, polite, extremely helpful, and very patient with my many questions. He even cleaned up the boiler room and helped me remove the door to the room to ensure proper air flow at all times. Then after applying my member discount he worked with me to come up with an affordable invoice solution! I would highly recommend this company to anyone who needs them! Thank you so much Prospector Plumbing and Heating and Ryland!!! 12/10!

Tony came out to service our boiler and we had him fix our dreaded drippy kitchen sink, and fix a previous repair in our shower. The last tech switched the hot and cold nozzle which was annoying when we had guests, or gave the kids a bath for that matter. They would be waiting around for hot water that wasn’t coming because it had to be on the cold setting. He explained the membership thoroughly and answered all our questions where as in the past the techs would rush through the membership talk which made it not appealing. He also gave us 3 options on fixing our sink, where as the previous tech had told us we would have to replace the entire faucet, which would be our last resort. Tony was the best, we will be requesting him by name from this point forward. He deserves a raise too! Thanks again Tony, so so happy my sink is fixed and it’s not a constant fight when I try to turn off the water!!

I had the pleasure of working with Nick as my technician. You can tell this team is working hard as winter approaches. Despite having been hunkered down in crawl spaces all day, Nick had a great attitude about addressing our boiler in yet another crawl space. He was friendly, and communicated extremely well what was happening with the heating system. He provided his recommendation but also offered other options at different price points. I felt very informed when making my decision!

Edit*****After leaving what I felt was a fair and honest review about my experience, I was contacted by their customer support team who was genuinely interested in hearing my side and seeing what they could do better as a company. He was very professional, and went above and beyond to make sure that my total experience with the company met my expectations.*****Their tech, Ryland, gave my system 2000 a tuneup. He was knowledgeable and professional and made sure he answered all my questions.I did have some snags with the company that were unexpected. I had selected Prospector Plumbing due to their high rating despite their comparatively high price. We set up an appointment for the 8-10:00 timeframe, and I drove home from work to start waiting at 8:00. After not hearing anything by 10:20, I called their receptionist, who said they would reach out to the driver. When they called back, they said they were at least another hour out, and I decided to reschedule the appointment. They were apologetic and offered a 5% discount on my service.On the morning of my second appointment, I got a text at 8:40 introducing my driver and saying he was on the way. He arrived at 9:00 and started on the boiler. He did a thorough job, and I had no problems with his work.When it came time to pay for the $600 annual plan (cheaper than the stand-alone tuneup cost), the tech said the 5% off wouldn’t apply. When they offered the discount, there was no mention that it wouldn’t apply to the annual plan. Since the annual plan is cheaper than a stand-alone tuneup, it is expected that people just get the annual plan, which is what the receptionist had recommended. This would have made a difference whether I just went with another company or gave them another chance with a second appointment.Ryland, if you’re reading this, I would totally hire you to come back and work on my boiler again, but my experience with the “company” side was less than I expected for the price point.

Good service in uncommon in Fairbanks.We have been happy with Prospector for work on our propane range, home boiler, and garage Toyo boiler. Morgan and Andrew did excellent work.We have lived in Fairbanks for over 30 years and Prospector Plumbing had refreshingly excellent service, excellent communication, and a good value fixing our shower leak. (Excellent service is rare in Fairbanks) Also used them for boiler tuneup ($380). Most recently our boiler shutdown due to recirculating pump failure. As promised, they were on site the next morning to fix the problem.We had another Fairbanks company quote much higher for our toyo boiler repairs.
Ryland did a very good and quick job with my plumbing needs. Thanx.

Plumber Kevin came to my home to work on the lift station pump and did an outstanding job! He explained everything thouroughly and gave estimates before the work any work was done. He got the job done in a timely manner! It was a costly repair, but one that needed to be done. Prospector was the only plumbing company in Fairbanks that responded in a timely fashion. All of the other companies wanted me to wait from four to three months to fix the problem and Prospector realized the urgency and got the job done in just a few hours. I highly recommend them.

Working with Prospector Plumbing has been one of the absolute best business transactions I’ve ever had in my life.When we moved up from the lower 48 we didn’t know a thing about boiler heating systems or heating oil. I read a lot about them on Google to gain some understanding but they’re totally foreign to our family. The boiler in our house we bought was older and had been “piece mailed” together a few times and we knew it was one of the first major things we would handle after getting settled. We did a lot of research on the natural gas vs oil topic and ultimately chose to convert the entire house to natural gas.We called a few companies out to get a feel for the companies, get quotes, ask questions, etc. It’s not that the other companies weren’t nice or knowledgeable but there is a very obvious difference in the level of care and passion that Nick and Prospector Plumbing bring to the table. Like a night and day difference. We had some locals tells us we should work with a different company because they would “be cheaper” but no matter how you do it, this was a HUGE project that wasn’t going to be “cheap”.Once we met Nick it was a done deal. We knew we were converting to natural gas and we knew we wanted to put every appliance we could on natural gas — we figured it made the most sense to get all the work done up front and hopefully reduce the electric bill some, minimize our carbon footprint, and in the long run save a ton on heating oil. Like I said, a huge project.Considering the cost of this project was like buying a new car or small truck I had about billion questions and Nick never lost his patience with us and was more than willing to educate us and answer ALL of the questions. Nick must have come to our house 5 or 6 times to rework quotes every time we had questions, other thoughts, and provided us about every possible way to complete the project, and even suggested several ways we could save money if we wanted to not do certain things. The transparency and honesty was refreshing.Nick Ely is an absolute fantastic human being and is worth his weight gold to Prospector and I hope they realize the value he brings to the company and what an asset he is.To summarize, the work in total took about 10 working days (which is what we had estimated), the quality and craftsmanship of the work is phenomenal and we are truly appreciative off all the hard work that was put in and will be a lifelong customer to Prospector because of the great service we had. I would 11/10 recommend anyone to use this company services!The only thing we regret was not taking the time to paint the garage while everything was removed ha!

Ryland was on time, efficient and professional. He had everything he needed and went to work right away. Extremely courteous, answered questions about the system and took only a few moments to diagnose the issue. He went over an itemized bill, and performed work only after authorization was given. Excellent service can’t say enough great things about Ryland and prospectors as a business. In fact I’m on their annual service plan now.

Every aspect of my interaction with Prospector Plumbing was outstandingly good.Natalie on the phone was clear and helpful. She was able to schedule me within a day during a busy time.Morgan is the best boiler technician I’ve ever had in the 33 years in this house. He was able to troubleshoot the problem and fix it in a workmanlike fashion. He explain what he did clearly and patiently. He answered questions I had about other parts of the piping and hardware in the boiler room.This is the first time that I have employed Prospector, and I expect that they will be my primary outfit for boiler and plumbing problems in the future.

Our water pump failed. It was so old that they no longer make parts to fix it. Prospector came out the same day and installed a new style pump that is quieter and low maintenance. Yes it was expensive, but we really needed to have the water back and reliable. You pay for what you get and we got great service!

We are new to the area and with our new house needed some help with a couple of issues and with understanding the system. Andrew came out and was on time, thorough, professional and the follow up we received from the office was considerate and caring.We will be using Prospector in the future when the need arises. Great to find a company that has quality performance and a follow through attitude. Refreshing!

Nick Ely just installed a new boiler and water pump for me. The quality of the install is amazing. Every part of the of the new set up was laid out way better than what was in my little room before. He took the time to explain every option I had and answer all my questions. I can’t say enough good things about Nick.Everyone at the office is friendly and helpful as well, so Prospector is the only plumbing and heating service for me.

I can not say enough about the service I have just received from Prospector Heating And Plumbing. Andrew and his helper were on time and very courteous and professional. I had my old pressure tank removed from my yukie crawlspace and a whole new setup in my garage. Which this was a major plumbing project. They were able to get my old system working long enough for me to get a shower which was awesome since my pressure tank went down on Friday. Their work was awesome. I don’t think even took a lunch break. They finished at about 515 pm. I now have more water pressure and my new pressure tank work perfect. This company get a five star rating for customer service from the receptionist to the plumbers. I don’t have to worry about going down in the dark hole ie crawlspace again. Plus they took my old pressure tank out and took it to the dump for me.
