With the right care, All-Star Plumbing and Heating can help you keep your boiler running for years to come. We provide high-quality and reliable heating system services to get you through those cold Alaskan winters.
We rarely give much thought to our heating system... Until it fails. Instead, we simply expect a continuous supply of heat and hot water, almost as if by magic.
When a boiler does break down, though, the resulting chaos can cause us to wonder how we ever took such an essential item in our home for granted. Boiler breakdowns are almost always an expensive nuisance, and the vast majority of these issues occur during winter -- right when Alaskans need heat the most!
Common problems that can occur include baseboard radiators not getting hot; boilers improperly switching off; condensate pipes freezing; decreases in necessary pressure; messy, dripping fluids; pilot lights going out; and strange sounds like banging and rumbling.
An improperly-sized boiler can also lead to heating issues down the road. In years past, many homes were fitted with oversized boilers that are now out-of-date, resulting in higher energy costs and unreliable heating.
The good news, though, is that this considerable strain to your heating system and your loved ones is usually avoidable with a little planning and preventative maintenance. And, when issues do arise, All-Star is here to help.
Contact All-Star Plumbing and Heating for all your boiler needs. Our extremely knowledgeable plumbers can help you find the right heating system that fits your needs, at a price that fits your budget.
The lifespan of your boiler largely depends on how well it has been maintained. With regular inspections and tune-ups, you can expect your unit can last up to 15 years.
A boiler that isn’t properly maintained could fail completely, and will almost certainly run less efficiently and cause an increase in your energy bills. Remember: Not maintaining your home is not free. The inevitable problems always cost more in the long run, and decrease the value of your home along the way.
All-Star Plumbing and Heating recommends annual tune ups, regular cleaning, and periodic combustion analysis testing to make sure your unit is burning efficiently to keep it working at its best.
