There is nothing worse than having your house out of order while waiting for plumbing service.
Homeowners and property managers are often faced with surprise plumbing problems. But there are steps homeowners can take proactively to extend the lifespan of their boilers and hot water tanks to prevent being taken by surprise down the road.
Tri-City Plumbing & Heating offers various quality-plumbing services, from new home and business installations to renovations.
The Port Coquitlam-based company also offers regular boiler and hot water tank services, which, if done annually, ensures hot water tanks and boilers are in good working condition, limiting wear over time.
Not sure if you should be getting your hot water tank and boiler regularly serviced? Here are the top reasons why regular service should be at the top of mind:
Catch problems early
A regular boiler and hot water tank inspection ensures that homeowners are aware of problems that may be developing with their equipment. This preventive maintenance ensures issues are identified early and dealt with promptly, keeping catastrophic issues with the boiler and water heater out of sight.
Regular checks and maintenance will help keep your heating equipment running correctly. Fixing small issues promptly means they’re less likely to become worse down the road. You’ll save money in the long run, too, since a healthy and maintained boiler and water heater lasts longer than ones that haven’t been serviced. Stretch out the time between replacements with regular maintenance.
Save on heating bills
Investing in regular maintenance can ultimately be a money saver. A boiler that doesn’t run efficiently costs money in increased power usage and heating bills.
Consistent service cuts down energy bills and ensures your heating equipment is running efficiently. A qualified technician will perform the necessary inspections to ensure your equipment has no issues and is running as efficiently as possible.
While the boiler’s age and make will affect how efficient it can work, clients say they notice a huge difference once it has been serviced for efficiency.
Stay under warranty
Good warranties can be a lifesaver. Need a new part? Equipment breaking down? If you’re under warranty, often some repairs may be covered.
Be sure to read your warranty’s fine print? Some warranties will require that equipment is subject to regular annual maintenance.
It’s a good idea to check your warranty’s conditions and ensure that you are staying compliant through annual servicing. The last thing you want is for a breakdown to happen only to find out your warranty is no longer valid.
Keep your family safe
Regularly servicing your boiler and hot water heater is about so much more than saving money — it can also save lives.
In addition to checking for issues and efficiencies, technicians perform several safety checks when servicing water heaters and boilers.
These safety inspections are crucial. Every year, people in British Columbia die or become seriously ill from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning.
A safety inspection will ensure that your boiler is not just running efficiently but also safely. You’ll sleep easy knowing that your family is safe.
