Boilers are a great way to heat your home, but they need to be properly maintained in order to work the way they’re supposed to. There are 3 main reasons to schedule annual boiler maintenance with Novel Care:
- Boiler Efficiency
- Boiler Reliability
- Boiler Safety
Boiler Maintenance: Efficiency
The efficiency of your boiler might not be something you start to think about until a few years go by and your boiler starts aging. When this happens you might notice your energy bills increase, as your boiler uses more gas and electricity to heat you home.
With regular boiler maintenance, you can maintain the efficiency of your boiler. Simply book an annual boiler maintenance appointment with Novel Care and we’ll visit once a year and do our version of a tune up on your boiler. This ensures that its using as little energy as possible to heat your home. This will save you money every month on your energy bills.
Boiler Maintenance: Reliability
If your boiler is constantly breaking down it might be because it’s old, but it also might be because it needs maintenance. An annual boiler maintenance appointment with Novel Care will ensure that your boiler is ready for the cold months of winter that are ultimately coming. Once those days arrive your boiler will face an increased load, and any small issues will have added stress placed on them which can turn them into big problems. Ultimately, a breakdown can occur and you and your family might be left waiting in the cold for a boiler repair technician.
Boiler Maintenance : Safety
The safety of your boiler isn’t something you should worry about on a daily basis, but it’s important to keep your boiler running properly to ensure its safe. Gas boilers are very common in older homes throughout southern Ontario and while they can be very efficient sources of radiant heat, they can be quite dangerous if they breakdown. Upon breaking down the first thing you should do is turn off the gas source to your boiler. This ensures that carbon monoxide can’t build up while your boiler isn’t working. Once you’ve turned off the gas to your boiler the next steps should be to call your insurance provider and Novel Care to arrange repairs.
