Boilers need regular service to maintain optimal functioning, just like furnaces and other heating appliances. People call us regularly to ask us when they should service their boiler. If you’ve been wondering if yours is due for a maintenance visit, here’s what you need to know.
In general, it’s a good idea to service your boiler each year. This will help you avoid breakdowns and will help keep you and your family safe all winter long. It will also ensure that you are as warm as possible during the winter because your boiler will be working at maximum efficiency.
Service in the Spring
We recommend servicing your boiler in the spring or early summer. Once you’re done using it for heating over the winter, give us a call and we’ll come service it so it’s ready for the next winter. This gives you optimal access to our technicians because they won’t be as busy as they are at the beginning of winter, when many people choose to service their boilers. This also means that you won’t have to be cold while we assess your boiler and fix any problems we find.
Service When You Move
If you’ve just moved into a new house and you don’t know when the boiler was last serviced, get it serviced ASAP. This ensures optimal heating and lets you know if there are any problems you need to be aware of. It’s also a great idea to service a boiler before you move out of the home, then give the new residents the records so they know it happened.
