Caring for your system

Tubman Heating provides an audit service to ensure your boiler or burner is working safely and efficiently within your heating system. An inspection by our technicians may also reveal sub-optimal performance, leading to poor quality heating and rocketing energy bills.

This might be for capital expenditure planning purposes, changed production needs, contingency planning, risk profile or changes to operational requirements.  An audit is also a great idea when new management takes over a facility.


A Tubman Heating system audits covers:

  • Suitability and performance of equipment
  • Overall condition of the heating system
  • Checks of: Fuel type, boilers, burners, tanks, pipework, valves, pumps, radiators, and control systems
  • Service history of the heating system

We then deliver a written report and sometimes schedule a meeting to discuss our findings. If we find assets that are in immediate need of repair or replacement we will include recommendations in the report. Armed with hard facts from a Tubman Heating audit, you’ll be well placed to address any issues.

New Zealand Steam Boiler Surveys

Everything it takes to keep your steam boiler working

Under the New Zealand Boiler Code, steam boilers must be serviced every quarter and undergo an annual survey to ensure safe operation.

Tubman Heating is ready, willing, and able to assist! We perform these activities regularly – either on-demand or as part of an ongoing service agreement. We can help you to operate and maintain your steam boiler to ensure optimum efficiency, safe operation and to maximise the lifespan of your asset.

As pressure vessels, steam boilers are subject to the approved Code of Practice for design, safe operation, maintenance, and servicing. It’s more than just a matter of legal compliance – there’s a real danger to life and limb if a boiler or burner malfunctions. 


An independent inspection by Tubman Heating includes:

  • Checking emissions & safety devices
  • Inspection of tube-plating for cracks
  • Re-certification of pressure gauges
  • Servicing of burners
  • Bringing the boiler up to operating pressure
  • Configuring air/fuel ratio 
  • Cleaning fire-side of boiler (if required)
  • Testing, replacement, or refurbishment of safety valves / alarms / sight glasses
  • Reviewing water-test history, water-side conditions, and maintenance records
