Boilers are sturdy heating systems, and they often outlast natural gas heaters by five years or more. But no boiler is sturdy enough to last forever. If you live in your home long enough, you’ll eventually come to a point when the next boiler service in Parksville, BC you need to schedule is a boiler replacement.

You don’t want to replace your boiler before you have to. This begs the question: how can you know when your current boiler has reached its limits and it needs to be replaced? You could just wait for your boiler to completely fail, but that’s a bad idea for many reasons—it leaves you abruptly trapped without heat, the boiler will waste immense amounts of energy in the last year or so, and the boiler could even become hazardous. We want to help you recognize the signs of a boiler ready for replacement before you face serious problems!

A tankless water heater is an excellent addition to many homes. Unlike storage tank water heaters—the kind found in the majority of homes—tankless systems don’t need to run regularly to keep a supply of water heated. This helps them save energy, increase their service lives, and take up less space. Because tankless water heaters heat water as needed, they won’t run out of hot water as long as they were accurately sized and installed. 

Tankless water heaters are precision devices, so they can fall prey to a number of malfunctions, some of which are specific to them. Fast action to have water heater repair in Parksville, BC will keep your tankless system running the way you want it to. 

To help you identify when you have a tankless water heater in trouble, we’ve listed several warning signs to watch for:

Ice appearing on parts of an air conditioning system, usually along the indoor evaporator coil, is a common HVAC problem, and one that people often misunderstand. To someone unfamiliar with how air conditioning works, seeing ice may simply seem like a sign the AC is working extremely well, making the air so cold that it’s creating ice. 

This isn’t what’s happening. Ice should never appear on an air conditioning system, and its presence makes it harder for an AC to do its job. If the air conditioner doesn’t receive repairs, the ice will continue to grow and eventually cause the AC to stop cooling entirely.

Below we’re going to look at why ice might form on your air conditioner and why you need it fixed right away.

As long as you know the basic safety precautions to take with your natural gas furnace, you can avoid such problems. Below we’ve listed the important steps to take to ensure you have a safe winter season of heating with your gas furnace.

This is one of the most important posts we’ll make this year—the reminder to all our customers and customers-to-be to sign up for heating maintenance for their central heater this fall.
