6 Reasons to Call for a Boiler Inspection


With only a few months until winter starts, it’s time to start thinking about your boiler’s health. You likely haven’t been using your boiler much since March, and that downtime often isn’t healthy for machines. This means there’s the chance your boiler won’t run it’s best when you need it. To ensure your boiler will be healthy this winter, give the experts at Vander Hyde a call so we can perform a boiler inspection. Boiler failure is a serious topic, and we want to make sure you won’t have to deal with losing your heat this winter.

Here are six reasons to have us help you with a boiler inspection:

Stay safe

Running boilers generate carbon monoxide, but it gets safely vented through an exhaust pipe that leads outside your house. However, a boiler that isn’t well-maintained might have holes in the exhaust pipe, allowing the deadly gas to get into your home. Also, boilers have a reputation for failing explosively, so keeping them healthy should be a top priority.

Ensure efficiency

Boilers have a lot of parts, and some of them can wear out faster than others. It’s always important to ensure that every part is working their best. By doing so, you can keep your boiler using less energy to heat your home.

Extend the boiler’s life

Boilers can be one of the more expensive purchases for your home, and you’ll want to keep your big investment running for as long as you can. Regular inspections and professional maintenance can keep your boiler running for as long as it can. By doing this, you can get the most out of your purchase.

Save money on energy

When it comes to annual energy usage, boilers are second only to HVAC systems in how much energy gets used. However, keeping your boiler as efficient as it can cut down on how much it costs to run. By keeping it well-maintained, you can save up to 10% on its energy usage. Also, a well-maintained boiler is less likely to break down, which would cost you money to fix or replace.

Maintain warranties

We can’t speak for every boiler manufacturer, but some of the warranties for their boilers require you to give it regular service and inspections. If you don’t follow the requirements, the warranty will be void and you won’t get any money to help you with repairs or replacements.

Legally required

Some parts of the country have laws about how often you get boiler inspections. Not following these laws means you’ll not only have a badly-maintained boiler, but you’ll also have to pay fines. Following local inspection laws will keep you out of legal trouble and ensure your boiler works fine.
