Preparing Your Natural Gas System for Winter
Summer heat makes the thought of a cold Brooklyn or Manhattan winter distant, but being proactive now will keep your natural gas heating system ready for action. Having your heating system professionally serviced now can make the difference between a warm home or a frigid and costly winter.
It’s important to have an inspection of your gas system on an annual basis by professionals like your Brooklyn neighbors at Petri Plumbing. It’s not a job for amateurs. Regular maintenance and inspection of your lines, appliances, and furnaces/boilers will help prevent dangerous leaks and keep the system running efficiently. You can also take steps to winterize your home by using caulk and weather-strip to seal your windows against drafts and insulating your water heater. A properly insulated house saves money in the long-run.
The experts at Petri Plumbing can also inspect your home hot water heating systems. We can identify any trouble spots with a system before it’s too late and offer advice on the most cost-effective repair or replacement options.
Older home boilers only run at 50 to 60 percent efficiency, so it might be time to consider replacing yours with a more energy efficient model. The lower utility bills that result can pay for the investment within a few years.
Our services include gas pipe leak repair and installation, fixture installations, gas system inspections, boiler repair, and water heater installation. You can also take advantage of our free emergency valve tagging service to ensure that each shut-off valve in your home is properly labeled, making it easier to find the right one when needed.
Waiting until it’s freezing to find out your natural gas system isn’t working properly makes for a miserable winter in Brooklyn. Call the natural gas experts at Petri Plumbing at 718-717-1089 today to schedule an inspection.
