6 Reasons to Call for Boiler Maintenance
- Plumbing Services
Winter only a month away, and we’re here to help you stay warm. If you own a boiler, you’re already mostly prepared to keep your home heated. However, keeping your boiler inactive over the summer will have caused it to gather a lot of dust and become unreliable. If you want to be sure your boiler will work all winter, learn more about how our boiler maintenance can help you.
Here are six reasons to get boiler maintenance from us before the winter hits:
Extend your boiler’s lifespan
Boilers are expensive pieces of equipment, so keeping yours healthy is a good idea. Regular boiler maintenance can extend your boiler’s lifespan and cut down on repairs and replacements. On average, a well-kept boiler can last about ten to fifteen years.
Stay safe from carbon monoxide and explosions
As well as producing heat for your home, running boilers generate carbon monoxide. To counter this, boilers have exhaust pipes that safely vent the deadly and odorless gas outside. However, worn-down or damaged boilers can leak the gas into your home. Also, poorly-kept boilers are known to explode, so be sure to give your boiler regular maintenance.
Keep your warranty valid
Boilers, like many appliances, have certain warranty stipulations owners have to follow. Most boiler warranties require you to give the boiler periodic maintenance from a professional. Maintaining your warranty’s validity can help you save money if you need to pay for unexpected boiler repairs.
Decrease energy costs
Right behind HVAC systems, boilers have the second-highest annual energy usage in your home. Taking steps to cut down on that usage can help reduce your energy bills. A well-maintained boiler can save you 10% on your energy bills.
Comply with local safety laws
Neglected boilers can be dangerous, so local laws about properly caring for them aren’t uncommon. They’ll often require boiler owners like yourself to have a professional fix up your boiler every once in a while. Staying on top of your boiler’s maintenance will keep you from getting fined for letting your boiler get into bad condition.
Better energy efficiency and reliability
Every appliance will wear down over time, making them less efficient at whatever they do. However, regularly getting professional maintenance can help keep your boiler working its best. Healthier boilers use less energy, which also saves you money, and are less likely to break down.
