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

Monday, 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.

Monday, January 11th, 2021

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. If you score low enough on the point scale, then your heater is probably fine for a targeted repair and routine maintenance every year. If it scores high enough, then you might make a more cost-effective decision by investing in heater replacement in Westlake, OH.

Ultimately, the choice is yours. But who says we can’t be along with you every step of the way to ensure you make the best choice?

Get Your Heater Ready for Winter

Monday, October 5th, 2020

Heaters aren’t exactly built to last forever. Sure, in the best of cases they produce affordable, comfortable heat for our homes season after season, but that can only last so long.

Do you need to schedule heater maintenance this fall? Do you need to call us for heater repair in Westlake, OH?

Monday, June 15th, 2020

Heat pumps are exceptional pieces of technology, but if you think you can install your heat pump on your own then you’re gravely mistaken.
