Along with forced-air furnaces, boiler systems are a common form of heating in our neck of the woods. They utilize heated water or steam to warm your home, piped through radiators and similar devices to provide comfort and healthy conditions during the coldest parts of the year. Boiler systems are effective and reliable, but they run into problems from time to time just like any other system, and when they do, you need a reliable repair service to turn to. (Never attempt to repair or even diagnose problems with your boiler system. It requires proper training and formal licensing to do so.)
There are a number of heating repair services in the area that you can turn to in the event of trouble with your system, but you want to make sure you choose the one that gives you the best value for your money. That can be harder to determine, and at the end of the day, only you can make the best choice for your home and your system. There are a few details you can look for, however, that can make the choice easier. They tend to indicate a particularly reliable service for your boiler.
They Offer Boiler-Specific Services
Boilers differ from forced-air furnaces and other kinds of heating on a number of levels. That means they require specific knowledge and experience to deal with, which can’t simply be “transposed” from other kinds of system. Look for a company that specializes in boiler repairs and says so on their site. That means you get a technician with experience in your specific problem, which means they can get it resolved much more quickly and effectively. It also means you can call that same contractor again if you have any other issues in the future.
They Have Strong Affiliations
Affiliations are a good way to determine the quality of a given service, and any half-decent heating repair operation will offer endorsement from satisfied customers testifying to the quality of their work. A top-notch company, however, will offer other affiliations that speak to their professionalism. One of them is the Better Business Bureau, which is always an excellent gauge of a given company’s qualities, and organizations like Angie’s List. Perhaps most importantly, look for the purple seal of NATE certification. North American Technician Excellence is an objective third party dedicated to the rigorous evaluation of heating and air conditioning service providers. Only the very top companies earn their endorsement.
They Have Emergency Services
Not every problem takes place during regular office hours, and you can’t always wait if your boiler breaks down in the middle of the night or during the weekend. A quality repair service will offer emergency repair calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week, which ensures that your system gets fixed quickly no matter when the issue hits.
