Hot Water Boilers/Heaters
We rarely look at our hot water heaters. They’re usually in the basement or some dank, dark corner. When you feel the need to check on your boiler, there’s usually a problem or an indication of one. To the untrained eye, a sick boiler can appear healthy. However, your hot water heater will exhibit a few signs to let you know that it’s time to call in the professionals. At that point you may be asking yourself, “Is there a quality HVAC contractor near me?” Affirmative! Andover HVAC, Heating and Cooling is happy to answer your call.
We won’t advocate for unnecessary replacements. Our company has built a respectable reputation for itself by establishing long lasting relationships with people in this community. Therefore, we won’t sell you what you don’t need. Take control of your household by performing a cursory boiler assessment. Determine the date your hot water heater was manufactured by reading the label on the device. Most boilers have a five to ten- year warranty. Now, if your boiler was made in 2008, installed in 2010 and has a five-year warranty, it’s time to replace it. Your hot water heater is seven years old and you’re overdue.
Lately, when you get in the shower, you notice that the hot water doesn’t last as long as it used to. You turn on the hot water in the kitchen and it doesn’t get hot. This inconvenience prompts you to head down to the basement to check out your boiler. When you get there you notice there is a puddle of water accumulating and corrosion around the hardware. You listen, and hear all types of clanking, hissing and banging. You need a new hot water heater and you know it. It’s not the end of the world; Andover HVAC, Heating and Cooling will guide you through the process.
Extending the Life of your Boiler
Most American households spend about $500 annually on water and sewage bills. Perhaps $500 doesn’t sound like a lot, but when spread out over ten years, you’ve spent $5000. The number can escalate if your hot water heater is not operating at its peak. To extend the life span of your boiler, allow us to conduct a free evaluation. If necessary, we will replace the anode rod. That simple act can buy you a couple more years. Changing the burner is vital, after all, it does heat the water in the tank. Switching out the cold water dip tube is another option.
Residential and Commercial
The sheer bodies in a space determines the type of system you need and can be a key indicator of how your heating and cooling system is being stressed. More bodies mean more body heat, which ultimately means that your air conditioner must work harder. It makes sense that the #1 HVAC contractor in town is versed in commercial and residential repairs and installations. We have great communication skills and can speak in laymen’s terms to heads of households and talk shop with building engineers. Whatever is necessary to get the job done, is what we’re prepared to do.
