Now Is The Time for a Home Boiler Check

The change in seasons is a great time to perform regular boiler home checks.

When it comes to maintenance, the seasons can help dictate when it’s time to ensure your boiler is working correctly. The colder months coming up can be a great time to check up on how your boiler is working. Here are some essential tips to keep in mind to ensure your home boiler properly working as the temperatures drop. 

Check For Any Leaks

A boiler that has leaks or requires any potential additional water could be nearing the end of its life cycle. As soon as you replace your unit, the chance of your home flooding because of a broken boiler decreases, which will save you significant expenses in the long run. 

Look Out For Discoloration

It’s important to note that yellow flames on gas burners and black soot on any oil boilers will indicate that the fuel isn’t properly burning and is creating carbon monoxide inside your home. This makes it even more important for homeowners to have a carbon monoxide detector in their home to alert them of this potential issue. 

Regular Maintenance

When was the last time you checked your home boiler? It’s probably not the first thing you check when conducting any home maintenance. However, noticing when your boiler is ready for a replacement can make a huge difference to the enjoyment you have within your home. 

The Age of the Home Boiler

Along with proper maintenance, understanding that boilers have a set life span can make it easier to know when it’s time to replace your boiler system. If a boiler requires frequent repairs, it might be a sign that a replacement is now the more cost-effective solution.

Bottom Line

There are a lot of factors that go into deciding whether a new boiler is needed. It all comes down to proper maintenance. Regular check-ins can protect your home from any damage that could result from a malfunctioning boiler.
