Isn’t the winter great sleeping weather? I mean is there anything better than snuggling under the warm covers for a good night’s sleep? The fun goes away quickly however when you wake up to a cold house when you get out from under the covers.
Don’t Ignore Your Boiler
That can easily happen when you don’t take care of the gas boiler in your Waterford, MI home. The boiler is the heart of your home’s heating system and as such it needs care and maintenance to keep your house warm and comfortable.
The recommendation is to have an annual inspection and boiler cleaning. It’s the best way to avoid costly boiler repairs. When you ignore maintenance, you could face some unpleasant consequences, including but not limited to:
- Comfort & safety—Let’s face it, Waterford, MI is cold in the winter and heating problems are not an annoyance. Unexpected breakdowns can result in freezing temperatures that can quickly damage your house and create life-threatening problems.
- Efficiency & reliability—Everyone wants to save money. Boiler cleaning and maintenance will increase efficiency and cut monthly bills. This is true even if the boiler is still keeping your home comfortable.
- Decreased longevity—Replacing a boiler is an expensive proposition and makes the cost of regular boiler maintenance look pretty reasonable. Most gas systems will last for decades but ONLY if they are properly maintained. Ignoring boiler maintenance will almost certainly shorten its lifespan, perhaps by years.
