The Brunt of the Furnace and Boiler
Have you ever wondered what would happen if your furnace or boiler just stopped working on a 10 degree below zero Saturday night? It seems it would be unlike most other problems in that it could be the gift that keeps on giving. By that I mean: 1) Can I get hold of anyone on a frigid Saturday night to repair my system? 2) Are any required parts available? 3) What happens if I need a new furnace or boiler, and how much does it cost? And 4) How long will I be without heat? The unwanted problems and chaos it would produce boggles the mind.
Fortunately for us, we can make the decision to care for our heating systems so we never have to suffer the “undesirable life changes” they can produce. With nearly 80% of breakdowns and furnace/boiler failures being caused by dirt, rust and scale that have built up in hard to see areas, it makes sense to have a professional take a look at it.
How to Keep Your Furnace and Boiler Happy & Healthy
The first (and one of the most important things) is to make sure you have your furnace/boiler cleaned once a year. This simple step will greatly increase its efficiency and reliability while preventing major problems down the road.
Next, a trained, licensed professional needs to test your heating system to make sure it is working properly. Any problems that are caught and repaired at this step will save you money because you are fixing would-be problems before any really expensive damage is done.
And last, but most definitely not least, the technician will ensure that your boiler is properly vented so you are not in danger of breathing in carbon monoxide. This deadly gas is odorless and colorless so it poses a real threat to you and your family and ventilation should be taken seriously.
