If you’re one of many Canadians who use a boiler to heat their home and their domestic water instead of a traditional furnace and water heater, we’re sure you’re well aware of the benefits of using a boiler. Boilers offer more even heating throughout the home, as well as energy efficiency. Part of loving your boiler and reaping the benefits from it is taking care of it as well…this includes professional maintenance to ensure that your boiler is working in tip top shape. This is when to call for professional maintenance for your boiler.
What Can I Do Myself?
Of course, there are things you can do for your boiler at home to help keep it working smoothly. Practices like keeping the outside of your boiler dust-free, keeping the area around it clean, and using your hot water responsibly, but for the most part, we recommend that you leave the professional work to the professionals when working with your boiler. Professional boiler maintenance is not work that you can do at home unless you’re a certified and trained HVAC technician.
When Should I Call The Experts?
If you notice that you’re having trouble with your boiler, you should absolutely call the experts before the issue worsens. Common issues involving household boilers include leaks, blocked air vents, and water level adjustments. If you find any kind of problem or out-of-the-normal behaviour from your boiler, calling a professional immediately is necessary for saving time and money on repairs.
When Should I Book Maintenance?
We’ve talked about what you can do to help your boiler, and what to do if you’re seeing problems with the system, but you can save financially by booking annual professional maintenance. We recommend that you book professional maintenance for your boiler once a year as you would for a traditional furnace to ensure that it’s working properly and has no underlying issues that may arise in the near future. Professional boiler maintenance is a quick and necessary procedure that will ultimately save you money and heartache in the long run. If you haven’t booked boiler maintenance this year, this is your reminder to call Spring Home and set it up!
