One of the major benefits of owning hydronic heating is that it doesn't require anywhere near as much maintenance as other heating options. However, you will still need to have a hydronic heater service carried out on occasion. On this page, we are going to look at how often you will need that service carried out and perhaps more importantly, why it is so important that you have a hydronic heater service carried out regularly.
How often should you service your hydronic heating system?
Ideally, you would have a hydronic heater service carried out at least once per year. This will help to ensure that your heater heads into winter without any issues. Most people will have their hydronic heating system serviced a couple of weeks before winter starts. Make sure you give yourself a bit of time!
At the absolute minimum, you should have your heater serviced every two-years. However, as we said, the more frequently you do it, the better it is going to be for the heater and your warmth!
Why does your hydronic heating system need to be serviced?
To put it simply; to ensure that it lasts for as long as possible, while at the same time ensuring that it will actually keep you warm.
There are a lot of working parts in a hydronic heating system. A service will help to ensure that all of these components are in good working condition and if they are not, then they can be repaired. In fact, this is one of the main reasons as to why you should have a hydronic heating service carried out. It is important that small issues are corrected before they become too big. This is especially important when it comes to the boiler. If you have a gas boiler and something goes wrong, then the outcome can be rather dangerous.
The service will also look for any breakages in the water pipes, thermostat issues and any other smaller issues that could hamper how the heating system works. This will help to ensure that once winter rolls around, you are going to be kept nice and warm. It will also ensure that you are not racking up energy bills any higher than they need to be.
Remember, while a regular service will cost you money, it is going to be a whole lot cheaper than needing to replace your hydronic heating system!
