You may decide a boiler is right for your home if you want to enjoy several benefits that furnaces and heat pumps can’t provide. For example, as long as you have your boiler maintained properly, the fact that these heaters have very few moving parts helps them last for decades.
Since they don’t rely on forced air to heat your home, boilers also promote a clean, dust-free home, making them ideal for family members who have allergies. These heaters also don’t require ductwork to be installed, making them a more cost effecting heating solution if your home lacks this feature.
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. When your trusty boiler reaches its final days, it’s time to consider replacing it. Researching a replacement in advance helps ensure you find just the right upgrade for your home and budget. Be sure to work with local Montgomery County heating professionals to help you find an efficient, properly sized boiler.
It shouldn’t happen very often, but occasionally you may find the need to have your boiler repaired. Whether you’re concerned about a strange noise, increasing energy costs or comfort problems in your home, don’t hesitate to schedule a repair as soon as you notice something wrong. The sooner you act, the sooner a skilled professional can perform the necessary work to restore your boiler to good working order.
The most important part of owning a boiler is to schedule routine maintenance at the start of the heating season. This becomes especially important the longer you own your boiler. Keeping up with yearly maintenance helps keep your energy bills down, prolongs the life of your boiler, and prevents expensive mid-season breakdowns.
There are a few maintenance tasks you can take care of yourself, such as checking the safety valve, water gauge and pressure level gauge. Other tasks are more complicated but equally important. For the sake of safety and your boiler’s longevity, it’s important to hire a professional every year to round out your boiler’s maintenance needs.
