American Vintage helps families prepare for winter

Evanston, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/31/2018 -- Comparing furnaces to boilers is like comparing apples to oranges. The two systems work in entirely different ways with their own unique features and benefits. But if there's one thing they have in common, it's the need for annual maintenance.

Boilers are commonly found in older homes. They're known for making homes feel warmer and cozier compared to forced-air furnaces. To keep a boiler running at its best, it should be inspected annually. Before winter arrives in full force, American Vintage Home is providing boiler maintenance in Oak Park, IL, and throughout the Chicago North Shore area. These inspections are designed to prolong the system's life, keep it running efficiently and help homeowners save on their energy bills.

During an inspection, the technician will use a checklist to thoroughly examine the boiler. One crucial task is ensuring that the boiler has proper water pressure levels. If the pressure is too low, the water won't flow through the pipes correctly and the boiler won't provide heat.

The technician will perform a number of other tasks, including:

Testing the electrical components
Inspecting the valves and radiators
Checking for leaks
Looking for blockages
Examining for signs of deterioration
...And more
