Boiler systems for heating the home have been a go-to choice for heating systems in my family. When I was a kid, my parents relied on this seasoned boiler that was in our basement for decades, as it quietly churned and provided humid heat for the entire family to enjoy throughout the bitter Winter weather. Now as an adult on my own, I have a boiler in my basement as well – something that’s been faithfully heating my home through each chilly season for the past decade! While I know better than to doubt my trusty seasoned boiler, there have been times where my doubts nearly cost myself and others a whole lot more than I bargained for due to thinking the boiler was done for! Last winter, I started seeing concerns where my home had trouble staying warm for long. I thought that might be due to a need for the furnace to get tuned up, but then I began to wonder if the boiler was just overdue for a replacement altogether. I began shopping around for a new, modern and more efficient boiler (which is not a cheap investment, by the way), and I decided that it couldn’t hurt to reach out to a local heating and a/c repair business for a consultation before I make that decision. Several mornings later, one of the business’s Heating and A/C specialists came to my beach home to inspect my boiler and the remainder of my Heating and A/C system, just to make sure everything else was operating as it should. During his inspection, the Heating and A/C repair worker found that my thermostat was actually off by more than twelve degrees! I didn’t realize how significant of an issue this actually was until the Heating and A/C worker corrected the thermostat, and suddenly my home was considerably more comfortable and warm.
