6 Benefits of Boiler Maintenance in Massachusetts
Here at MillTown, we’ve helped you prepare for the winter by shutting down your AC. We’ve also told you why it’s so important to get your furnace tuned-up for the winter. Now it’s time to get those boilers ready! Like furnaces, boilers are home heating systems, and they can get worn down after several months of inactivity. New England winters can be fierce, so you want to be sure your boiler can take the cold. Learn more about how getting boiler maintenance for your Massachusetts home can keep you comfortable and save you money.
Here are six ways that getting boiler maintenance for your Massachusetts home can prepare you for the winter:
Follow local safety laws
When poorly-maintained, boilers can be one of the more dangerous heating systems you can buy. That’s why you’ll often see local laws that require boiler-owners to get regular maintenance and inspections from licensed technicians. These laws act as a financial incentive to keep your boiler healthy, as they come with fines if you don’t follow them.
Decreased energy costs
Boilers are one of the most power-hungry appliances you can buy. In terms of annual energy usage, the only thing that can beat boilers is HVAC systems. However, a boiler’s high energy usage can be cut down. If you give your boiler regular maintenance, you can reduce your energy bills by 10%.
Keep you and your home safe
Running your boiler generates heat, but it also creates carbon monoxide, which is highly dangerous. That’s why boilers have exhaust pipes to safely vent the deadly and odorless gas outside. However, not getting enough maintenance can cause the exhaust pipe to become damaged, allowing carbon monoxide into your home. Also, failing boilers are known to explode, so make sure you keep yours well-maintained.
Higher energy efficiency and reliability
Boilers are complex machines, and that complexity can cause some parts to wear out faster than others. When you call us for boiler maintenance, we check on all of its parts and ensure your boiler is in working condition. Regular maintenance work can save you money by making your boiler more reliable and energy-efficient.
Extend your boiler’s life
Boilers cost a lot of money, so you don’t want yours dying out quickly. Regular boiler maintenance visits can extend its lifespan and help you get the most out of your investment. Well-maintained boilers can usually last ten to fifteen years.
Keep your warranty valid
Boiler manufacturers often have stipulations in their product’s warranties that have to be followed if you want to be covered for repairs and replacements. One of these is to give their products regular maintenance work. Regular maintenance can help save you money by keeping your warranty valid.
