Why You Shouldn't Put off Your Annual AC Inspection
Boiler installation is one of the demanding home improvement projects you'll undertake. Investing in a new boiler is a welcome relief if you depend on it to heat water or your home.
You must engage a skilled and gas-certified plumber from the get-go. Whether you install a combi or an electric boiler, you must know the following boiler installation steps involved.
Boiler installation starts with a site visit. A gas safe plumber inspects your space and evaluates the installation design.
With good furnace maintenance, your furnace will last 15 to 20 years or longer. At some point, you may begin to consider whether it is worth repairing your existing furnace, or if it is time to replace the one you have. Furnace maintenance should be done at the beginning of the heating season to make sure it is clean and ready for the work ahead. Beyond annual maintenance, you should have a technician come to inspect your furnace whenever you notice changes to how your furnace is functioning.
I almost always have my air conditioner inspected every spring before I start using it in the summer. However, last year I decided to skip the inspection. Everything had been OK for the last couple of years, so I assumed that it would be fine this year as well. Why not save a few dollars and skip the annual check up, just this once?
Of course, this was the year that my air conditioner decided to break down. It ran for a few days, but it never really seemed to get cool enough to bring the indoor temperature down. Then it started making a loud noise, right before shutting off completely. By that time, the AC repair company was swamped like it always is when the weather is warm, and I had to wait days for an appointment. Next year, I will definitely be getting that yearly inspection first.
