Sharing The Benefits of Boiler and Furnace Maintenance
Just as the summer’s heat begins to fade, property owners in colder climates are almost ready to prep for winter. In order to get the most out of their furnace or boiler this year, homeowners or landlords will need a professional cleaning. A clean furnace maximizes fuel efficiency and it guarantees longer life out of blowers, as well as cleaner air in the home.
When talking to clients and potential clients about boiler and furnace maintenance, always be prepared to explain the benefits of routine maintenance, particularly at the beginning of the season.
- Prolong the life of your equipment, including the boiler or the furnace and the delivery system.
- Substantial cost savings due to reduced energy consumption.
- Improve indoor air quality throughout the year. By removing dust, soot, allergens and mold from a heating system, the resulting air quality in the home is vastly improved. This translates into a substantially improved quality of life, and it can influence long term health.
Indoor air quality is an issue in the United States on the national level. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, research shows that the air inside the homes and buildings of even some of the country’s most industrialized cities can actually be dirtier than the air outside. Most homeowners are concerned with the air quality in their cities, but few realize the potential hazards of poor indoor air quality. Since people in the United States spend most of their time indoors, maintaining a healthy quality of air in the spaces the work and live is of utmost importance.
