6 Benefits of Getting Boiler Maintenance
With winter only a month away, we’ve been helping homeowners prepare for the cold. Over the past month or so, we’ve shut down AC units and fixed up furnaces. However, even boiler owners can benefit from our services! Like furnaces, boilers gather a lot of dust over the summer and can become unreliable. Getting boiler maintenance from our heating specialists is the best way to ensure you’ll stay comfortable this winter.
Here are six reasons to call us to get boiler maintenance before the Massachusetts storms hit:
Extend your boiler’s lifespan
Buying a boiler can cost a lot, so you’ll want it to last as long as possible. Getting your boiler maintenance from Papalia Home Services can let you get the most out of your boiler. On average, a well-kept boiler can last about ten to fifteen years.
Avoid carbon monoxide and explosions
Boilers produce heat, but they release carbon monoxide as a byproduct. That’s why boilers have exhaust pipes that safely vent the deadly and odorless gas outside. However, worn-down boilers can release carbon monoxide into your home, most often through a damaged exhaust pipe. Also, poorly-kept boilers are known to explode, so caring for yours is important!
Maintain your warranty’s validity
Like many warranties, boiler warranties have certain warranty stipulations owners have to follow. A common one for boilers is to give them 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. Cutting back on that heavy usage by making your boiler more efficient can save you plenty of money. A well-maintained boiler can save you 10% on your energy bills.
Comply with local safety laws
Neglected boilers are dangerous, so you’ll often see local laws about caring for them. They’ll often require boiler owners like yourself to have a professional fix up your boiler every once in a while. It’s bad enough having a boiler in bad condition, but getting fines for it will only make things worse.
Better energy efficiency and reliability
Any appliance, boilers included, will wear down over time. Fortunately, regular maintenance can help keep your boiler in the best condition possible. Healthier boilers use less energy and avoid breaking down, both of which can cost you money.
