Is your New Hampshire home heated by a boiler? If so, there are many advantages to it.
Boilers are closed-loop systems that use water to generate heat, and that heat is circulated around your home as water or steam. Water and steam can carry heat more effectively than forced-air heating, meaning the temperature is more consistent throughout your home. This kind of heat is also less drying for skin, furniture, and fabrics.
You may be wondering how to best take care of it so that it keeps running at its peak performance and energy efficiency. Johnny Prescott is here to help, with expert boiler maintenance, repair, and installation services. We also have some tips you can follow to make sure your boiler is running well when we’re not there.
Like your car, your boiler is a big investment. You wouldn’t drive your car for years without oil and filter changes, tire rotations, tune-ups, and other routine maintenance, would you? We hope not!
An annual boiler maintenance tune-up by the experienced, skilled service technicians at Johnny Prescott keeps your boiler operating well and at its best possible energy efficiency, saving you money on energy costs. We clean and lubricate parts, and also conduct a thorough inspection to detect and fix problems before they get worse. This helps to protect you from mid-winter breakdowns and potentially big repair bills.
Many boiler manufacturers include in their warranties a requirement for regular professional maintenance. Our tune-ups can help keep your boiler’s warranty in effect.
The actual tune-up for your boiler is not a do-it-yourself project, no matter how many online videos you watch. You likely do not have the training or tools to do the job right. Getting it wrong could end up costing you more than if you’d simply let Johnny Prescott do the job right the first time.
