Getting Your Brooklyn Heating and Cooling Systems Ready for 2018
The heating and cooling systems in your Brooklyn home don’t maintain themselves. They need a little TLC to continue keeping your home comfortable in both cold and hot weather. With the turn of the year just a couple of weeks away, the experts at Petri Plumbing recommend taking some easy steps to keep your HVAC system running at full capacity during 2018.
Gas line inspection
If your home uses gas heat, it’s vitally important to have your heating system inspected annually for damaged or leaking gas lines. If you need to install or move a gas appliance, seek help from licensed professionals.
Natural gas is a great and economical way to heat your home, but it still requires care and caution. If you ever smell rotten eggs, leave your house or apartment immediately. Afterward, call 911 and the gas company to report the leak before contacting us for professional gas line repair services.
Your boiler will benefit from an annual inspection to catch small problems before they turn into big problems. Our plumbing experts can also advise you about replacing your boiler if it is at the end of its useful lifespan. If it’s more than 15 years old, routine maintenance can keep it running longer, but you’ll still be burning through money. Older boilers only run at 50 to 60 percent efficiency. This means you can pay for a new boiler within a few years out of the heating bill cost savings.

It may be chilly now, but keep in mind that your HVAC system will be better off if it is inspected and tuned-up prior to a steamy Brooklyn summer. Don’t forget that Petri Plumbing now offers full HVAC installation, maintenance and repair services such as:
