I Wanted to Use The Furnace

I just had my Heating, Ventilation & A/C system maintained last week, and the Heating, Ventilation & A/C supplier told me that my boiler was over 8 years old, however he wasn’t anxious about it, but he told me the age within our conversation and it made me realize how aged my boiler was, before that moment, I didn’t know how aged my boiler was because nothing made me think about it; My boiler gave heat efficiently for my household and I was happy with how it ran, so there was no reason for me to consider it’s age.

8 years is mid-age for a boiler, which is why the number caught me by surprise, and although my boiler was running just fine, it sent me into shock and I decided to start dedicating more time into keeping it clean.

I did some research and found straight-forward and safe ways to keep my boiler clean, which I just did a few mornings ago, the first thing I did was shut off my boiler completely, then next, I took a brush and soapy water and cleaned the combustion chamber. It took some time to find it, but when I did, I gave it a wonderful scrub. Then, I purchased a current air filter and replaced the aged one with it. The Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional did not include a current air filter with his servicing, so it was important that I replace it myself, then lastly, I vacuumed out the air vents inside my house. I was surprised by how much dust and debri was caught in the air vents, but I felt relieved once it was all sucked up, then cleaning my boiler gives me peace of mind that I’m doing all I can to keep it running at it’s best.
