Boiler Maintenance

         Whether it's heating or hot water, boilers are at the heart of the modern home. Yet most of us forget about our boilers until they start causing us trouble.Need convincing? Here's a list of top reasons why you should make sure your boiler is serviced regularly.
  • Save money on repairs 
    Full-blown boiler problems can often develop from minor faults. An annual service will increase the chance that these are picked up on and fixed before they become a problem, saving you money and future hassle.

Water Heater Maintenance

         Do you enjoy waking up to the satisfying feeling of a hot steamy shower in the morning? There‚Äôs nothing better to start out the day right than that. Not only does the hot water calm down your mind and body, it gives you the kind of jolt a sleepy head needs to get going. However, when all you can get is freezing cold water in the morning for your shower, the jarring effect can give you headaches and put you in a crummy mood from the get go. Did you know that water heaters are very important because they are the source behind the luxury of hot water?


Although you may be quite handy around the house, it's often a good idea not to attempt repairs on your cooling and heating units. Doing so could lead to more costly repairs and affect the validity of your warranty.
