The only way you wouldn’t have noticed the leaves falling and the weather getting cooler is if you haven’t left your home for a while. As much as we all try to avoid it, winter is almost here and instead of trying to avoid it we need to prepare for it. Many older Toronto homes have boiler systems that use radiators to heat the house and all of its spaces. Whether they’re new or old these boilers need autumn boiler maintenance.
Scheduling a professional autumn boiler maintenance appointment will give you and your family peace of mind that your home will be warm and toasty for the entire winter and spring. While keeping your house warm is a primary purpose of your boiler, there certainly are benefits of keeping it well maintained with autumn boiler maintenance:
When your boiler isn’t properly maintained it has to work harder than necessary in order to keep your home warm during cold winter days. Energy efficiency is important to maintain in all of your HVAC appliances, especially your boiler. Leaks, sediment build up in the tank, dirty burners, corrosion and other issues can all have a negative impact on boiler efficiency. When your boiler is running efficiently, it uses less energy, which means it costs you less to operate it. Overall, autumn boiler maintenance saves you money on your monthly heating bills.

Longer Equipment Lifespan
An autumn boiler maintenance appointment allows a Air Tech Toronto technician to go through a long checklist of things that need to be addressed on any make or model of boiler. They will tune up, clean and test your boiler to ensure that all moving parts and functions are working properly.

Professional autumn boiler maintenance basically means your equipment will last longer and run better, compared to equipment that’s not maintained.
