Are you one of the many homeowners in our area who relies on
a boiler for your heating needs instead of the traditional furnace? This is
definitely a great choice, especially if you have limited room in your living
space for ductwork, since a boiler operates by circulating hot water through
concealed pipes to terminal points like radiators or baseboard heaters, where
the heat then radiates into the rooms.
Most households that utilize these powerful systems
appreciate the comfort and energy savings that they bring. They also like how
rarely these boilers need repair. Since boilers contain fewer moving parts than
furnaces or heat pumps do, they wear down a lot slower, and don’t require as
many repairs as traditional furnaces do throughout their useful lifespan.
However, it’s important that you don’t let this slower aging
and fewer repair needs trick you into thinking you boiler system doesn’t need
maintenance. Because yes, it does need maintenance!
