Your hydronic boiler is a very important part of your home’s water system. It works hard to heat water to a high but not boiling temperature to then disperse it throughout your home through pipes. Just like any other system, your boiler system must receive periodic maintenance to keep it working properly. Without a working boiler, your home won’t have hot water.
Following are some reasons why it’s important to receive boiler maintenance services:
If your boiler isn’t working at peak efficiency or there’s an issue with it, it will have to work harder to heat up water, which then means you’ll be spending more per month on fuel and utilities. Anytime a system has to work harder, it will end up costing you more. Receiving maintenance ensures your boiler is always working as efficiently as it should, saving you more each month.
A boiler is a pretty big investment for your home, so you want it to last as long as possible. Receiving regular maintenance from a trusted professional keeps issues at bay and ensures it can last as long as possible. Without regular maintenance, your boiler unit will certainly not last as long, causing the need for you to invest in a new one sooner rather than later.
Can Help Prevent Failure
While receiving boiler maintenance can confirm that everything’s looking as it should, it can also catch problems before they become worse or even irreversible. If there’s a problem with your boiler and you don’t have yearly maintenance, you might not notice the problem until it’s much worse, and there’s a higher chance you may need to invest in a new boiler. Preventative maintenance gives your boiler the highest odds of lasting as long as possible.
Keeps Your Family Safe
If they’re not maintained safely, boilers have the potential to become a hazard. They release carbon monoxide through an exhaust pipe, which is located outside your home. During maintenance checks, a professional will check to ensure there are no leaks or cracks in the pipe, and that any carbon monoxide is exiting the home through the pipe and not creeping inside your home. Without these maintenance checks, you’re at risk for a potentially dangerous situation.
Validating the Warranty
Most boilers have warranties with strict rules that must be followed in order for them to be valid. Receiving maintenance is a pretty common one, meaning that if it doesn’t receive periodic maintenance checks, the warranty may be invalidated. This can mean you wouldn’t be able to save money on repairs, when you otherwise would’ve been able to if the warranty was valid.
