Your boiler works very hard to provide heat and hot water for your entire home, and a little maintenance is the key to keeping it running at peak efficiency and effectiveness for years to come. Comfort24-7 knows that home boiler maintenance is very important, and they offer comprehensive service checks to maximize energy efficiency and minimize the risk of future issues. Our goal is to help our friends and neighbors rest easier knowing that their boilers are professionally maintained.
Benefits of Maintenance
For some frugal Chicagoland residents, boiler or furnace maintenance seems like an unnecessary expense. As long as the heater keeps running smoothly, there is no need to have it serviced. In fact, home heating systems are deceptively self-sufficient: They run well enough to get by on their own, but without maintenance, they are prone to expensive issues and consume unnecessarily large amounts of fuel.
Proper steam boiler maintenance helps homeowners save money in two ways. First, boilers that are properly maintained run more efficiently than those that are not, which reduces monthly utility costs. Second, a well-maintained boiler is less prone to issues, which means there is less risk of needing a potentially expensive repair. In other words, an annual service agreement is a winning investment in the short and long term.
Besides saving money, proper maintenance helps the environment by reducing fuel consumption and thus lowering the home’s carbon footprint. Finally, the peace of mind that comes from knowing your home heating equipment is properly maintained has real value, especially in the middle of a cold Chicagoland winter.
Boiler Maintenance Checklist
