What Is Boiler Maintenance?
Why It’s Important
Massachusetts residents know they have to take winter seriously and prepare for it. Part of those preparations includes making sure your heating system is in good working order. Receiving regular boiler maintenance is an important item on every homeowner’s to-do list. And you don’t want to wait until the coldest days of winter hit to get maintenance for your boiler. Do it now. By taking care of your boiler now, you’ll have peace of mind all winter and avoid a no-heat emergency. Plus it will be easier to schedule your maintenance visit now. The colder it gets the busier we get.
Boiler Service Plans
Enrolling in a service plan for your HVAC equipment is like investing in health insurance. It creates an opportunity to find small problems and address them before they become more serious and expensive to resolve. It also keeps your heating system running at maximum efficiency and covers you if something does go wrong.
Scott Williams offers a Silver Platter heating oil service plan. It’s the gold standard when it comes to protection for your heating system. Our service plan will prevent surprise problems (and most HVAC breakdowns are preventable). Our service plan will also extend the life of your equipment and keep it running as efficiently as possible. That means you’ll use as little fuel as possible and save money on your energy bills.
Silver Platter Heating Oil Service Plan
Since the majority of heating equipment breakdowns could have been prevented with regular yearly professional maintenance, Scott Williams makes an annual tune-up the foundation of our service plans.
What is boiler maintenance? What does it involve? Here’s what we do as part of our Silver Platter heating oil service plan, which includes a 12-point tune-up for your heating system:
- Adjust all electrodes as needed
- Check draft
- Clean the oil burner
- Inspect all controls and switches
- Inspect the pump strainer
- Lubricate all pumps and fan motors
- Lubricate the burner motor
- Perform a combustion test
- Replace the air filter
- Replace the nozzle
- Replace the oil filter
- Vacuum the system and flue pipe
As a Silver Platter customer, in addition to receiving annual boiler maintenance, you’re also eligible for 24-hour emergency service 365 days of the year should you ever need repairs. And labor and material costs are covered for a wide range of repairs under our Silver Platter plan.
You shouldn’t skip on the maintenance for your boiler. A heating system that doesn’t receive regular professional maintenance can lose up to 5% of its efficiency every year. If your heating system becomes less efficient, not only will it do less good of a job keeping your household comfortably warm all winter, but it will consume more fuel than it needs to and drive your energy costs up. Fuel costs tend to increase during the winter months, so an efficient heating system will save you a significant amount of money and an inefficient heating system will cause a noticeable increase in your fuel costs.
