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.

  • Look for a company with access to a huge inventory of parts, including parts for older units and smaller manufacturers. Having a large inventory of parts will also make emergency service easier and ensure that the parts you need are in stock when you need them.
  • It is also important to remember that the company is only as good as its employees. Look for a firm with a strong track record of success and dedicated employees with the proper professional accreditation and the relevant training needed to service all kinds of boilers.
  • The track record of the service company is a vital consideration no matter what kind of boiler you own. A company with more than 30 years of experience is likely to be a better choice than a firm that just started operating last year.

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.

You can set your mind at ease and prepare yourself for emergencies by choosing our Worry-free Plan. For a small annual fee, you can guarantee yourself emergency 24/7 service whenever and wherever you need it. Even if your boiler is running perfectly now, you never know when an unexpected breakdown will leave you shivering.
