Why Should I Have My Boiler Serviced?
The number one reason to have your boiler serviced is to help it run more efficiently. Higher efficiency means you’ll save money on your heating oil bill in the colder months. It can also help you avoid the time drain and unexpected repair costs that come with a breakdown. Your boiler needs regular maintenance and servicing to make sure that it is working efficiently and safely.
How Do I Know If My Boiler Needs to Be Serviced?
There are a few telltale signs that your boiler needs to be serviced ASAP:
- No heat or inadequate heat in your home
- The pilot light is out
- Low water levels inside your boiler
- Finding evidence of leaks in and around your boiler
- Your thermostat isn’t working
What Does a Boiler Service Involve?
A typical boiler service will involve one of our technicians visiting your home to examine your boiler to check if it is working correctly, safely, and efficiently. They will want to examine your boiler for any signs of corrosion or leaking around the inside and outside of your system. They will also be looking for carbon monoxide leaks, worn out components like oil nozzles and ignition electrodes, build-up of soot and residues, and more. Once your boiler has been serviced, the technician will discuss any issues with you, and provide you with an action plan. If you’re concerned about your family’s safety, or you simply want to save some money where you can, servicing your boiler at least annually is a great idea. Be sure to check your home insurance as well, as most boiler warranties and some home insurance policies require you to ensure your boiler is safe through regular maintenance.
