SAVE ON BOILER REPAIRS
If you have regular service on your boiler to make sure that it’s working correctly, you can save a lot of money on repairs that may occur. Regular boiler maintenance keeps your repair costs down by catching problems early before they become very costly. Issues left unrepaired could cause significant damage or lead to malfunctions which will cost a lot more money later.
There are many safety tests that our technicians perform while they are servicing your boiler. It’s imperative that these inspections happen regularly because they can ultimately save lives. In 2015, a total of 393 deaths resulting from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning. 36% of the deaths occurred in December, January, or February when most boilers and heating systems are active.
REDUCE YOUR BILLS
When boilers are serviced regularly they are less likely to break down, will run more efficiently and in turn will be much safer. Regular boiler service will reduce your energy bills and ensure that the boiler and its main components have a longer life. Another way to reduce your bills would be to switch to an efficient thermostat, adjust your building controls, or adjust your boiler setpoint. These measures will reduce the energy your existing boiler consumes by up to 40%.
ENSURES INSURANCE COVERAGE
Most boiler warranties and insurance policies require that you are taking the appropriate measures to ensure the boiler is safe to use. With boilers being a large expense and potential liability, annual boiler service will ensure that you are following your insurance policy requirements. If you’re unfamiliar with your insurance policy, it’s best to check with your agency so they may advise you on any additional steps you need to take to have coverage. We can help clean and prepare your boiler for your annual inspection and address any issues we find. If your inspector does have any findings, we will work with you to address the issue quickly and cost-effectively to get your boiler back on line.
STAY UNDER WARRANTY
Warranties are a lifesaver when it comes to replacing parts and whole pieces of equipment. But, there are also some rules you need to abide by. If your boiler or burner is under warranty, this most likely will only apply if you have your boiler serviced on an annual basis. Just more incentive to keep everything in tip-top shape!
But, what happens if you don’t keep this up? Your warranty is null and void. Meaning, if it does break down, you won’t be able to claim the money for repairs. So, what can you do to ensure that you’re following the rules and getting the most bang for your buck? Check the warranty conditions on your boiler and note if it requires any types of services or inspections.
CATCH PROBLEMS EARLY
When you ensure that your boiler is serviced annually, you also allow your engineer to be able to identify any problems and address them before they do any major damage (talk about preventative maintenance!). Any issues you encounter, no matter how small, will only get worse as time progresses and the elements are able to erode away at your equipment.
IT COULD BE THE LAW
Are you a landlord or business owner? In order to keep your residents and patrons safe, you may be required by law or your insurance company to service and evaluate your boiler annually. You may be legally obligated to get a gas safety test (CSD-1 or NFPA 85 test) every year. This should include all gas equipment – not just boilers.To Do: Look over appliances (stoves, water heaters, etc.) every year and between tenants that way everything is always up to date.
