Our weather is starting to warm up, but it’s still cold enough that homes will need to depend on their heating systems for a bit longer—and we all know that March and early April can toss surprise cold snaps at us. Still, this is the time of year when we recommend that homeowners take stock of their heating system if it’s started to show signs of problems.
In this post, we’ll look at boilers. Boilers can last longer than forced-air heaters (furnaces, heat pumps), but they still won’t last forever, no matter how much we’d like that. If you have started to run into problems with your boiler—such as poor performance, reduced heating, strange noises, higher energy bills—at the end of the winter, you’ll want to consider whether the heater needs repairs or if it’s time to replace it entirely. We offer complete boiler service in Port Alberni, BC and throughout Courtenay, BC and the surrounding areas, so we can shed some light on this conundrum and help you make the best choice for your home comfort future.
