When should you have your boiler or heating system serviced?

When it comes to servicing your boiler or heating system, there’s no time like the present! Here in the greater Waltham, Newton, Belmont, and Watertown areas, the nights are getting cooler and fall is definitely in the air. Before long, you’ll be switching on the heat. Now’s the time to schedule a service visit for your boiler or heating system, so it will be ready to keep you warm and comfortable all winter long.

Why do it sooner rather than later? Scheduling your service now means we can get familiar with your boiler or heating system and make sure it’s fully operational and running at its best before you actually need to use it. And because we’ll be there during regular business hours, we can identify and repair any possible problems promptly—saving you from expensive emergency or “no heat” calls in the middle of a freezing winter’s night.

Depending on your specific boiler or heating system, your service visit might include pump inspection or filter replacement. If you have a gas system, we’ll check your gas pressure. No matter which kind of boiler or heating system you have—baseboard, radiator, registers that blow out air—we’ll clean, check, and tune it. And while we’re on the subject of service visits, remember to show your high-efficiency water heater a little love this fall, as well. If you own one of these high-end systems, the manufacturer usually requires a yearly maintenance flush-out and tune-up service.

So don’t wait for winter: schedule that service visit while the days are still long and keep your boiler or heating system running like new!
