Watch for Boiler Repair Concerns Early in the Fall

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

boiler-residentialWe aren’t quite at the true heating season yet—the time of the year when home heaters turn on to provide warmth. Temperatures are still hovering in the cool-to-warm region. But it’s October, which means fall is here and just over the ridge is winter. If you use a boiler system to heat up your house in winter, you want to ensure that it’s in the best shape possible before the cold weather hits. You can do this by arranging for a heating tune-up and inspection through one of our preventative maintenance comfort plans.

We urge you to avoid this situation, but it can still happen. If it does (and even if you did have routine maintenance this year) look out for some of these early indications that you need to call us for boiler repair in Burlington, VT. The sooner you have the trouble fixed, the less expensive it is likely to be and the less long-term damage it will do to the boiler.

Why HVAC Contractors Recommend Scheduling Fall Heating Maintenance

Monday, October 5th, 2015

This is something you will hear from any HVAC contractor: each fall, you must arrange for a professional technician to come to your home and provide your heating system with an inspection and tune-up. It doesn’t matter if you rely on a heat pump, electric furnace, gas furnace, boiler, or some other type of central heating system. It needs to have this maintenance done before the winter weather arrives.

We’ll explain below a few of the reasons why this is a universal recommendation from professionals.

It helps prevent surprise breakdowns

The #1 reason that you need maintenance for your heater is it will help avoid an unpleasant system breakdown during one of the coldest days of the year. If the heater doesn’t have checks to find repair issues and cleaning and adjustments to relieve stress on it, it will run a higher risk of failing when forced to do a large amount of work. Thanks to maintenance, you probably won’t find yourself in a panic trying to get emergency repairs done.
