6 Reasons to Get Boiler Maintenance Before the Winter
November is just about over and the first snow of the season will be arriving any day now. If your home’s heating appliances haven’t gotten their pre-season maintenance done, now is the time to do it! Owning a boiler or any other heating system means you need to give it regular maintenance every couple of seasons. It’s especially important to service them before the winter so your boiler won’t break down in the middle of the seasons. Having the experts at Pack-Timco maintain your boiler can make your winter much more comfortable.
Here are six reasons to get boiler maintenance from Pack-Timco professionals:
Improved reliability and energy efficiency
Over time, appliances and systems, even inactive ones, will become worn down and less efficient. Inefficient appliances use more energy to provide the same results and are more prone to breaking down. Giving your boiler regular maintenance will keep it running its best and reduce the risk of breakdowns.
Improved boiler lifespan
Any sort of heating system is a major financial investment, and it’s one you won’t want to make frequently. Regular maintenance is a key step to maximizing your boiler’s lifespan. Boilers that get professional maintenance regularly tend to last ten to fifteen years.
Cheaper energy costs
Reducing any system’s running cost is useful, but it’s especially helpful for boilers. The average boiler goes right behind HVAC systems as the biggest annual energy user in most homes. Regular maintenance is capable of keeping your boiler efficient, lowering its running costs. On average, you can cut 10% off your energy bills through regular boiler maintenance.
Obey local safety laws
Since neglected boilers are a safety hazard, you’ll often have local laws about getting regular maintenance. To avoid fines, you’ll need to call a company like ours to ensure your boiler is in good condition.
Maintain the warranty
Because they tend to be more complex, boilers and other systems tend to have warranty stipulations. These are special conditions that can void the warranty if the user breaks them. A common stipulation for boilers requires you get regularly get professional maintenance. Getting the professional maintenance you need can help you pay for repairs in the event of a breakdown.
Protection from gasses and explosions
Boilers provide heat to your home when they run, but they also emit deadly and odorless carbon monoxide. To counter this, boilers have an exhaust pipe that safely vents the gas. Letting your boiler get into bad shape means you risk letting carbon monoxide into your home. Also, it’s not unheard of for defective boilers to explode, so regular maintenance is important.
