What to Do, and What NOT to Do, to Your Boiler

February 8th, 2021

Boilers are durable if anything. They’re some of the most long-lasting and durable systems on the market if that’s what you’re looking for. We recommend them for homeowners that are tired of forced-air heating and want a powerful system that will last them with minor repairs and maintenance over a couple of decades.

That being said, there’s a catch. Boilers are durable as long as you treat them well. Some boilers run into early replacements and extremely expensive repairs needs only after one or two years due to neglect. Sure, we offer boiler service in Westlake, OH for everything that you might need, but wouldn’t it be nice if we helped prevent the need for boiler service?

Today, we’re going to talk about the do’s and don’ts of boiler malfunctions. We’ll cover everything from what you should do to your boiler, to what you should never—under any circumstances—do to your boiler.

One of the hardest parts about being a heater owner is that you need to decide when you’re ready to have the system replaced or repaired. There’s no class in high school or accurate guides available these days that can tell you exactly the information you’re looking for, which is why we’re looking to change that.

We’re going to use a nifty point system to determine whether your heater should be repaired or replaced.
