Reasons to Schedule an Autumn Boiler Inspection in Your Building
Summer weather is winding down, which means that it is time to start thinking about getting ready for freezing temperatures, ice and snow. Although most winters are not as cold and snowy as they used to be, you never know when the polar vortex will arrive. An autumn New York City boiler inspection ensures that your residential, commercial, governmental or industrial building will be ready for wintry weather.
Choose the Appointment Time You Prefer
There is often a rush to get inspections and maintenance late in the autumn. Scheduling early makes it easier to get the appointment time that you prefer. It will be easier for you to arrange for staff to attend the inspection or to work the inspection around other facilities management needs if you get it done early in the season.
Have Time to Arrange for Repairs or Service
An inspection may turn up a safety problem, critical equipment problem or need for a tune-up. Getting the inspection done early gives you more time to arrange for a boiler service call, maintenance, tune-up or repair. Heating companies get busier as the autumn season progresses, which means that you might have to wait a while if you call for maintenance or repairs late in the autumn. Having an inefficient or broken boiler could cost you more by waiting.
Be Prepared for an Unexpected Cold Weather Event
The weather in the NYC area is unpredictable. It is possible to have a hard freeze in the middle of October or a few inches of snow by the end of the month. If this happens, you will need to turn on the heat in the building. Having the boiler inspected at the beginning of autumn helps ensure that the equipment will be ready to heat the building as soon as the cold weather arrives.
