You may think that just because it is summer, there is no reason to think about the boiler that will keep your home warm over the winter months. Summer, however, is one of the best times to get things inspected and in working order for the colder months that lie ahead. You should have your boiler serviced annually, no matter what. This will ensure that it is running efficiently and avoid any potential problems that may arise at an inopportune time. It may also serve to validate your manufacturer’s warranty.
Boiler Service Is a Safety Issue
Your boiler is an appliance that burns fuel in your home. Whenever you use such an appliance, you run the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if the tasteless, colorless, and odorless gas is invading your living space. Boiler maintenance by a professional company can help to ensure that your system is working at its optimal efficiency, and not poisoning your home with this dangerous gas.
Is it Necessary to Do it Now?
It is not completely necessary to schedule your boiler service during the warmer months of the year, but it is a great time to get the chore out of the way. Once cold weather arrives, unserviced boilers and heating systems often experience a breakdown, and technicians are booked up with service and repair appointments. It just makes more sense to prepare ahead of time. This will potentially save you from a freezing cold home, cold showers, and expensive emergency repairs once winter arrives.
If you haven’t had your boiler serviced lately, call a professional now, before the colder weather arrives. The professionals at D. Rohde Heating, Plumbing & AC are ready to set up an appointment to ensure your boiler is ready to heat your home throughout the winter. Call us today at (845) 453-9072.
