Why You Should Replace Your Boiler With South West

A solid, reliable boiler is something most homeowners take for granted until it breaks down, that is. And while there is no convenient time for a boiler breakdown, as a South West customer, you can count on us to help you maintain, repair, and install your boiler. Fortunately, boilers are some of the sturdiest examples of HVAC equipment, so there are often plenty of warning signs that your boiler needs attention. Here are some solid reasons to get your boiler serviced, repaired, or even replaced:

  • Safety: Regardless of their age, boilers are very safe appliances. But if an older boiler does not receive a fresh combustion air supply, that could pose a health hazard. On the other hand, these risks are largely eliminated with a more advanced boiler, because all of its equipment is enclosed within its cabinet.
  • Efficiency: Today’s advanced efficiency models, can be up to 35% more efficient than older boilers. This will lead to much lower heating costs in the long term. An advanced system can pay for itself in as little as two years based on the money saved in fuel costs.
  • Reliability: Boilers typically become less reliable with age and must be repaired more regularly. In many cases, the older the boiler, the harder it can be to find spare parts – thus adding to the cost of repairs.

    Improving Efficiency Through Regular Maintenance

    Poorly maintained boilers can suffer performance-wise, leading to higher energy bills due to wasted energy. You could save 10% on your bills – hundreds of dollars annually – through minor adjustments performed on your boiler system.

    Monitoring Critical Controls

    Your safety valves and water gauge glass are two of the most critical components of your boiler system that ought to be checked regularly. As the name indicates, your safety valves are your boiler’s most crucial safety feature because it alleviates pressure if all other systems fail. Every steam and hot-water boiler must have at least one valve that provides the sufficient relieving capacity to meet or exceed maximum boiler output.

    If the water gauge glass is not properly cleaned and maintained, it will show an appropriate water level when the boiler is low on water.
