Why should I schedule regular checkups for my boiler?

The first thought that comes to mind when someone asks me this question is that you do not want to pay an emergency service call in the dead of winter when your boiler goes out and your family is freezing. By not scheduling regular checkup and maintenance for your boilers, you are simple tempting fate that you and your family will stay warm in our frigid Chicagoland winters and that your boiler will make it until next spring.

Advantages of Boiler Maintenance

In addition to the biggest advantage, keeping you and your family warm this winter, there are other advantages of regular boiler maintenance that every homeowner should know.

  • Maintains safety – Because carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless and tasteless gas, having your boiler regularly inspected and maintained reduces your risk of being injured from a carbon monoxide leak in the system. There are several components in your boiler that prevents carbon monoxide from reaching dangerous levels. It is important to inspect and service these components, as well as the other parts of the boiler, to ensure that you and your family are not only warm but that you are safe.
  • Improves efficiency – A serviced and maintained boiler operates much more efficiently than an old boiler that is never serviced. By keeping your current boiler serviced, you not only save money on energy bills each month because you have a more efficient boiler but you also save money because your boiler will last longer and you will not need to purchase a new boiler. During the service, the technician will soot and debris that can cause your boiler to not operate at its top operating efficiency. This cost you money each month in the form of higher utility bills. Regular maintenance prevents these problems from happening before they occur.
  • Catch simple problems before they become costly repairs – Having your boiler regularly inspected and maintained means that small problems that are easily fixed are not allowed to continue undetected and unrepaired until they turn into a very frustrating and costly repair for the homeowner.
  • You need a reliable boiler to keep your family warm during the cold winter months in Chicago. Maintenance will identify problems such as leaks and other early warning signs of pending component failures. Our experienced boiler technicians can quickly diagnose the problem and make the necessary repairs to keep your boiler working efficiently and effectively year round.
