Boiler Tips

Home boilers are essential heating systems that provide warmth and comfort in residential properties. They heat water, which is then circulated through pipes to radiators, baseboard heaters, or radiant floor systems, distributing heat evenly throughout the home. Boilers can also supply hot water for domestic use, such as showers, faucets, and appliances. They come in various types, including gas, oil, and electric boilers, catering to different fuel sources and heating needs. Modern boilers prioritize energy efficiency, with high-efficiency models boasting advanced features like condensing technology and modulating burners to optimize performance and reduce energy consumption. Proper maintenance and timely repairs ensure reliable operation and prolonged lifespan, contributing to a cozy and comfortable home environment.

Boilers operate uniquely, functioning akin to specialized water heaters. Unlike conventional heating systems that disperse warmth through air, boilers utilize hot water circulated via pipes. This warmed liquid courses through your home, imparting heat via radiators and interconnected devices. Upon cooling, the water cycles back to the boiler’s tank for reheating, initiating the process anew. Often termed water-based or hydronic systems, boilers commonly rely on natural gas to power their heating elements. Here’s a simplified breakdown of boiler operations:

  1. The home’s thermostat signals the boiler to activate.
  2. The boiler’s heating element warms water within its tank.
  3. Once the water reaches the desired temperature or converts into steam, the next phase commences.
  4. The boiler propels the steam or water through your radiators or baseboard radiant elements.
  5. The water cycles back to the boiler for reheating.
  6. The thermostat detects when your home achieves the desired temperature and instructs the boiler to shut off.

When it comes to your hydronic heating system, ensuring it’s in capable hands is crucial for both your investment and your comfort. But with numerous boiler experts in Michigan and the surrounding areas, selecting the right contractor can be challenging. Here are five essential qualities to look for when choosing a boiler contractor:

  1. Current Insurance and Licensing: Ensure the contractor meets Michigan’s HVAC requirements by checking for a valid license number on their website. If not listed, request it. Adequate insurance coverage is also vital to protect against property damage or injuries.

  2. Glowing Reviews: Research online reviews to gauge customer satisfaction and professionalism. Personal recommendations from acquaintances in Jackson can also provide valuable insights. Pay attention to how the contractor responds to negative feedback, as it reflects their commitment to resolving issues.

  3. Experience and Expertise: Prioritize contractors with extensive experience and a track record of expert boiler repair and installation. Inquire about their technicians’ years of experience and ensure they possess the necessary expertise for your specific needs.

  4. Warranties and Guarantees: Confirm that the contractor offers warranties and guarantees to safeguard against potential issues with new installations or repairs. Your satisfaction should be a top priority for the contractor.

  5. Special Offers and Rebates: Explore the contractor’s special offers page for potential discounts and inquire about assistance with submitting rebates for efficiency upgrades.

Home Maintenance Plans To Keep Your HVAC Equipment Running Strong

Frequently Asked Questions

Would you ask this question about oil changes? Probably not… As complex pieces of machinery, your air conditioner and furnace are not that different from your car. They need regular maintenance to function efficiently and routine inspections can ensure your equipment stays running strong and issue free year round. Annual maintenance inspections will catch small problems before they become major issues and will give you the peace of mind that you have done all you can to protect your investment on your home heating and cooling systems.

You’ll typically pay $80 to $200 for an A/C or furnace tune-up in Jackson. The amount depends on a variety of items including the number and size of your air conditioning units. Accessibility can also be a factor. While this may seem like a decent chunk of change, it’s a lot cheaper than paying for AC repair or replacement in Jackson. For savings opportunities, we suggest checking out our Comfort Club.

You hear your air conditioner buzzing along, but the number on the thermostat keeps climbing. When you check a nearby vent, you find the air from it is temperate at best. The lack of cold air has three likely causes:

  • Condenser Issues: Condensers in Jackson are typically located outside the home. They can sometimes get blocked by plants and other debris. Seasonal tree shedding is notorious. Clean it off. Your equipment should also be kept at least three feet from other objects.
  • Dirty Filters: You’re meant to change your furnace filter on a monthly basis. This is true even during AC season. Have you been doing that? If not, go check your filter. For anything darker than light grey, replace it with a new one. After changing the filter, give the unit time to adjust.
  • Evaporator Coil Issues: Filled with refrigerant, your evaporator coil is responsible for pulling the heat out of the air. If you see ice on it, the coil is likely the cause of your HVAC problems.

If these changes don’t help, give us a call at (517) 879-2049.

A lot of clients ask us this question. They want to know how much a new system or repair will cost before we evaluate your situation. Because of the numerous factors involved in heating and cooling systems, it’s nearly impossible to accurately provide estimates until we are on site and able to diagnose the problem. Once our technicians have been able to properly diagnose your issue, they will provide you with an itemized list of what needs to be repaired and will provide you with a final price to repair your HVAC issue.

With your typical HVAC system counting for roughly half of your energy consumption, you should always be looking for ways to cut down on energy consumption. If your electric or heating bills are giving you the blues, consider:

  • Upgrading Your System: Though this may seem like a counterintuitive way to save money, this move often pays for itself. Newer units not only cost less to run but also tend to be more environmentally friendly.
  • Opt for an Energy Efficient Cooling System: Going for an ENERGY STAR unit can save you hundreds of dollars each year according to data from the US Department of Energy. Rebates are often available to make new installations more affordable.
  • Landscape Around Your Unit: Make sure that the area around your air conditioner is clear of brush and debris. Plants should be kept two to three feet away from the equipment. You should also turn off the unit every so often to hose down the sides. These obstacles can make it more difficult for your unit to perform at an acceptable level.
  • Keep Your Curtains Closed: To limit summer cooling costs in Jackson, make sure to keep your curtains and windows closed. The less heat introduced into your rooms, the more efficiently your air conditioner can do its job.

Below are a few quick tips to help you navigate no heat issues at your home before calling a technician to diagnose your issue:

  • Is power getting to your furnace or heater? Is a fuse or circuit breaker tripped? Make sure your power switch is in the ON position.
  • When was the last time you swapped out your filter? If it’s been a while, try installing a new filter first. This can solve a lot of heating problems.
  • Verify your thermostat is set to “heat” and not “cool”. If you notice the display is dim, try swapping out the batteries on the back of the unit.
  • Is there snow or other debris blocking your outdoor vent? If so, remove the obstruction. This will allow your system to work more effectively.

If you still don’t have heat, give us a call right away at (517) 879-2049 and we will get a technician to your home ASAP to diagnose and repair your heating issue.
