One of the reasons that boilers continue to stay popular as a method for home heating is that they can last for many years without needing major repair work, and their lifespans are longer than most other home heating systems. A well-cared for boiler can keep a whole generation of people in a home cozy.
However, well-cared for is something we must stress. Boilers need routine maintenance just like other heating systems and major appliances in a home. You should expect to schedule pre-season maintenance for your boiler during the fall every year, and you must rely on professionals to handle the work.
Reasons you need to schedule boiler maintenance this fall… and every fall
- Avoid needless repairs: Boilers have few mechanical parts, but they will still need repairs on occasion, usually because of leaks or issues from an overheating tank. Regular maintenance will reduce these repair issues to a minimum, since one of the major jobs of maintenance is to locate places where wear on a boiler could lead to repair problems, and then fix them before they can become actual problems.
- Ensure a long service life: A boiler that fails after only a few years is a large waste of money. You want your boiler to enjoy a long life so that you get your money’s worth from your investment in heating. But a boiler can only hope to reach its maximum service life with regular maintenance that removes the stress from it and slows down the decay from age.
- Maintain energy efficiency: A boiler that starts to age rapidly will also become more expensive to run. Leaks, ineffective burners, bad circulator pumps, corrosion, sediment-filled tanks… all of these will make the boiler strain harder to provide you with warmth, and consequently lead to elevated bills. Don’t throw away the valuable energy-efficient performance of your boiler! Make sure it receives its annual maintenance visit.
