Understand How Your Boiler Works
One of the best ways to get the most out of your boiler is to understand exactly how it works. A boiler works by warming water up in order to create steam or hot water before directing it into the pipes of your home or commercial property through radiant floor systems, baseboard radiators or radiators.
It is also a good idea to understand just how efficient boilers are so that you know how much money you are either saving or wasting. Efficiency is gauged by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE), which is basically the amount of heat that is delivered into the interior of your home or business compared with the amount of fuel that the boiler uses. A few things to take note of with the AFUE are:
- It is not the amount of electricity that is used
- Any products that are labeled as Energy Star products are required to have a AFUE rating of at least 85 percent
To get a deeper understanding of your boiler’s efficiency, a boiler that has an AFUE rating of 85 percent means that 85 percent of the fuel that is supplied to the boiler is used directly for heating your interior and 15 percent of that fuel is wasted. Essentially, the higher the AFUE rating, the less energy is being wasted. No matter what your needs might be, Robert B. Payne, Inc. has the experience and expertise required to help you find the perfect boiler for your Fredericksburg home or commercial property.
Unlike our trained technicians, your boiler might break down and cease working effectively at any given moment. There is no set schedule for when the boiler is going to break; only long periods of use, minimal maintenance, and a dirty system will ruin something, and the unit will fail at the least opportune moment. When this happens, you should call in an HVAC expert for emergency plumbing situations.
Our skilled technicians are on call at all times, allowing us to send someone your way for an emergency repair job at any time of the day or night – rain, sleet. or snow! We do not let bad weather or lack of sunlight stop our ability to perform repairs where they are needed. We offer prompt customer service available 24 hours per day, and you don’t need to worry about overtime charges when our HVAC experts come out to service your heating system.
Boiler Repair Costs
On average, the cost for a boiler repair job is around $350 across the country. The majority of homeowners and business owners who require boiler repair services pay between $171 and $524, depending on a few different factors. These factors include whether or not the system was maintained well, whether it has been cleaned properly on a regularly timed schedule, and whether or not specific parts need to be replaced.
Upon arrival, our HVAC expert can determine exactly what needs to be completed in order to fully repair the boiler in your home or business. At this time, our technician can offer a comprehensive quote detailing the work that needs to be done, the parts that need to be replaced, and how long the repair will take. These items all factored together will give you the cost of the repair job. It is best not to let “nickel and dime” problems like regular maintenance build up, as they are more costly in the long run.
