Winter is Coming; Is Your Home Ready?

BROOKLYN, N.Y., Sept. 14, 2017 — The service professionals at Petri Plumbing & Heating, Inc., a leading plumbing and heating company with an A+ rating from the BBB, are experts at boiler tune-ups and replacements and are offering demonstrations on how to get started preparing for this winter.

“Most people don’t understand that their boiler has been sitting dormant for months. Once October hits, if your boiler isn’t properly functioning, you could have a serious problem on your hands,” said Michael Petri, owner of Petri Plumbing & Heating, Inc. “I cannot stress enough the importance of taking care of your boiler this fall before the cold weather hits. A simple maintenance check-up can really prove worthwhile.”

Boilers are one of the oldest heating technologies available. Older boilers have lower efficiency ratings than newer models. The contrast is staggering as old units run at roughly 60 percent efficiency while new units run at close to 99 percent efficiency.

A boiler replacement offers an array of benefits. New models are smaller in size, which can save homeowners energy, cut down on bill costs and reduce the pollution output in the environment. A new boiler can also provide a quieter operating system and improve comfort in the home.

Boilers can use a variety of fuels like wood, coal, propane, natural gas or oil. The most popular choices are natural gas and oil boilers as they are the most effective and efficient at heating. Fuel efficiency plays a large role in determining the outcome of an energy bill. Using newer eco-friendly equipment can further save on energy costs.

Like other machines and appliances, boilers go through rigorous wear and tear over time. Scheduling a routine inspection can reduce further complications or prevent total system breakdowns. Regular servicing also ensures your warranty stays valid.

“We keep our customers’ best interest in mind and always make sure they are getting the best deal and the best service. We want them to have complete satisfaction knowing we use the latest, most efficient technology to give them comfort in their homes,” Petri said.
