The Benefits of Scheduling Regular Maintenance for Your Boiler

The durability of boilers is one that most home appliances should envy. Boilers can last many years without encountering serious difficulties or losing their effectiveness at bringing even, cozy heating to an entire house. Because boilers have few mechanical parts, they do not wear down as fast as other home heating systems.

However, boilers still need regular maintenance: it’s key to making sure that they live up to their reputation for longevity. If you have a boiler in Brevard, NC taking care of your winter needs, you need to make sure that you take care of its needs as well with regular preventive maintenance.

Comfort Central, Inc. helps people care for their boilers with regular maintenance so they will get the following benefits:

  • Long lifespan: At its most basic, maintenance serves to reduce the stress a heating system undergoes during regular operation. A boiler can begin to develop corrosion and loose connections if it does not receive routine maintenance; these sorts of problems can lead to the boiler failing many years before its manufacturer’s expected lifetime.
  • Reduced future repairs: This is where the “preventive” part of “preventive maintenance” comes into play. A technician who gives a boiler a check-up during a maintenance visit will know where to look to catch potential problems needs before they lead to a breakdown. To reduce future repairs we check the efficiency of the system and venting efficiency of the boiler with a combustion analyzer. More often than not buildings that have hot water or steam heat are close to or older than 100 years old.  Often the chimneys will degrade from the inside out. If the vent becomes restricted, the boiler will not burn efficiently and can become a health hazard because the boiler can become plugged with soot and rust. By performing yearly maintenance, we can prevent many problems.
  • Superior efficiency: If a boiler doesn’t receive regular tune-ups to keep all its parts functioning at peak level, the boiler may start to use energy inefficiently, leading to poorer performance and higher energy bills. Keeping the burner area clean, stopping leaks, fixing broken heating elements, and replacing corroded parts will make sure that your boiler is doing its best job all the time.
