Boiler Service & Maintenance
Keeping your boiler maintained on a regular basis is the best preventative maintenance you can do. BC Furnace is one of the Lower Mainland’s most trusted professional services around because we offer services that are focused on you – our customer.
The terms ‘boiler’ and ‘furnace’ are often used interchangeably, but these two home heating appliances are actually very different. While a furnace is a warm air system that delivers heat throughout the home, a boiler works differently.
A boiler is a hydronic system that uses hot water to heat the home. A hot water system heats the water to around 82 degrees Celsius (180 degrees Fahrenheit). Once that water is heated, a circulator moves it through pipes and finally to a baseboard, radiator or a radiant in-floor tubing system.
Boiler Maintenance Service is Important
No matter what you call it, your boiler needs regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly, efficiently and safely. They have very specific maintenance requirements, and they need the help of a professional to run their best.
Having an inspection performed on an annual basis is one of the smartest things you can do, and it could even save you money. A poorly running boiler is an inefficient heating system, and that inefficiency could substantially increase your winter electric and gas bills.
Choosing a Boiler Service Company
No matter what kind of boiler heats your home or how long it has been in place, it is important to choose a service company with years of experience and the expertise needed to get the job done right the first time.
Boilers are complicated machines, and a company with years of real-world experience can provide better and faster service.
Be Prepared for Any Eventuality
Emergency service is another important thing to look for when seeking service for your boiler. You want to know that the company you choose will be there when you need them, even if your boiler chooses the coldest night of the year to stop working. Finding a company with true 24/7 service is not always easy, but it is important. Even if your boiler is running perfectly now, you never know when an unexpected breakdown will leave you shivering.
